All Of The Best Luxafor Open Source Projects In One Place

Blog cover 58

We were (and still are) thrilled about the massive interest in Luxafor. So we made a list of everyone who has put their time and effort in developing new Luxafor open source projects.

From day one Luxafor was created as an open source software. Because we believe that with a little bit of creativity and ingenuity of our users, Luxafor can become the most helpful tool not only for open office employees. And with an open-source code anyone could study, alter and develop new solutions, integrations, and features. Tailored to whatever needs they would seem fit.

We were glad about any initial interest, but we never expected such a massive response as it is. Therefore we would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who believes in Luxafor and has put their time and effort into developing new captivating Luxafor open source projects that they think would fit.
