Not finding any info online; I hope somebody here knows. It was Python in OpenOffice; is it still Python? Or are they moving to gasp VBA?

I think this page answers your question. In summary, you can use the following:

  • LibreOffice Basic

  • JavaScript

  • BeanShell

  • Python

But you can't write/edit Python scripts from LibreOffice IDE, just to run scripts.
