What madness is this?!

Installing the complete, unmodified LibreOffice right on a Librem 5?!??

This can't work... can it?

Well. LibreOffice successfully installed on the Librem 5!

But... I mean... It won't actually run.

... will it?

Holy smokes.

LibreOffice runs on the Librem 5!

AND IT WORKS.

Saving files, opening files, typing... the UI is a bit cramped (it's a desktop app on a phone)... but hot-diggity! It works!

@lunduke At long last, a way to actually write a novel while on the bus! Closest I've achieved is using #xpra to stream my server, but the HTML5 interface is so wonky it won't work on my phone...

@csolisr Both vim and emacs have long been in Termux on Android.

Though there's Androids wonderful random app termination...

@dredmorbius @lunduke I've tried a lot of text editors, and there's one major problem they share: they can't edit a novel because it literally doesn't fit in memory! (At least, I'm working on one that clocks at around 250K words and I'm still trimming it)

@csolisr Vim definitely doesn't have that problem.

I don't know what its upper limits are, but suspect it's > 1 million pages.
