Being a newbie at both Trac and Python I have started to explore the posibilites to generate html previews in the browser for more file types than the ones currently supported. I stubled upon a python project called PyODConverter which uses a service from OpenOffice?.org to convert between different file formats, e.g. pdf and html.
As I have already confessed I am a total newbie at this so what I would mainly like som help with is to decide wheter or not it is possible to use the output from this service to generate a html preview in trac.
A full list of avaliable conversion filters can be found at http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Framework/Article/Filter.
