This is an all-free-software list of extensions for both and LibreOffice applications.

The Apache extensions repository offers add-ons, dictionaries and other packages to extend with additional features. While the application is free software, the Apache extensions repository lists proprietary extensions as well as free software ones. Most extensions work with both LibreOffice and applications. This is the repository that the program uses by default.

The LibreOffice extensions repository only includes extensions published using free software licenses. This is the repository that the LibreOffice program uses by default.

The free software listing below is maintained by contributors to the LibrePlanet wiki. This listing is independent of the LibreOffice and the Apache extensions repository listings.

Please see Group:OpenOfficeExtensions for more information about the listing, how use it, and how to contribute.

Extensions are listed alphabetically by name. Use the column sort buttons (Sort none.gif) to sort by different criteria.
