Drawing and programming are fun, and it’s often useful to combine them. The aim of LibreLogo, the new experimental LibreOffice module + Writer toolbar to give an easy, Logo-like, Python based programming environment to the excellent vector graphics of LibreOffice. Here (and in my next posts) I will show examples of LibreLogo usage in school/office environment.
Fine graphics with printing quality. PDF and SVG exports of the OpenDocument format support printing and DTP programs: click on the first picture for the SVG export (Warning! It may halt Firefox 15).
Precise drawing. Turtle moving commands of LibreLogo supports printing measurements, and combining with manual handling of drawing objects in LibreOffice, it can save expensive decorative paper, as for these 3D Christmas stars (made for the local School Christmas fair). PDF, PDF2 (with spirals), ODT (with LibreLogo source).
Fancy, unique documents. This Christmas background created by random snowflakes: Unicode character “❄” (U+2744) with random sizes, positions and angles. The result of the LibreLogo program has been modified (overlapping of snowflakes, title) manually. PDF, ODT (with LibreLogo source).
