What is Librecust?

Librecust is a project developed in the context of GSOC 2018, introduced by GFOSS. Through interface customizations and development of extensions (toolbars, addons, wizards...), it aims to introduce open source tools, and especially LibreOffice in Greek legal employee's workflow. Office software and especially text editors are the main tool used by such services and a field reigned by closed source suites such as Microsoft Office. Employees where hired with mandatory MS Office knowledge, and throughout their career, developed muscle memory to these tools. Helping users to get familiar with open source text editing tools like LibreOffice/OpenOffice is expected to give a significant boost in open source usage as far as Greek public services are concerned.
