dbtroff uses XSLT, Heirloom troff, and Ghostscript to convert DocBook documents to PDF or PostScript. It allows you to flexibly customize the layout of the generated output by using troff instructions, and provides automatic page element positioning to avoid typographical artifacts like “widows”. Full-width and inline pictures can be included, and are also automatically positioned. Currently, only a rather restricted subset of DocBook 4.3 is supported.
Leandoc is a small documentation generator. Unlike other generators like Doxygen or epydoc, it is designed with simplicity in mind. While the others generate dozens of files, a complex directory hierarchy, and an untold number of support files, leandoc parses the files through the command line and prints one single file to stdout.
DocBook is an XML vocabulary which enables you to create document content in a presentation-neutral form that captures the logical structure of the content. Using the DocBook Project XSL stylesheets, you can publish DocBook content as HTML pages and PDF files and other formats, including man pages, HTML Help, and JavaHelp.
i18nHTML is a collection of scripts that can be used to write Web pages that visitors can translate into their respective native languages. It uses a database to match sentences from the Web page against translations and defines a set of PHP functions that generate either the translated HTML sentences or the original (typically English) text with decorations that allow users to provide translations. It requires that internationalized pages be written using the functions but does not constrain the page design in any way. Internationalized pages can be updated without losing existing translations for sentences that were not changed.
StoryTestIQ (a.k.a. "STIQ") is a tool for creating "Executable Requirements", which have also been known as acceptance tests or functional tests. STIQ was developed based on two other open source acceptance testing tools, Selenium and FitNesse. This combination allowed StoryTestIQ to capture the Web browser based testing facilities and elegant command language of Selenium along with the wiki based editing and pluggable Fit fixture loading of FitNesse.
MaintainJ is an Eclipse plugin that provides a Java reverse engineering tool that generates UML class and sequence diagrams at runtime for a single use case. It lets you know what exactly happens when you run a use case. The sequence diagrams generated are simple to read and explore. The calls can be folded and expanded as necessary to explore what is of interest. The loop calls and recursive calls are removed for a simple and readable sequence diagram. MaintainJ can be used on any Java code or jar files.
CmDO (pronounced "commando") is a tool that makes it easier to build other tools. It selectively exposes Python modules and functions as a complete command line interface. Specifically, CmDO finds modules in standard locations, interprets command line arguments, invokes functions, imports modules on demand, and supplies help. It also manages documentation resources containing structured text.
DrProject is a Web-based software project management portal that integrates a revision history viewer with issue tracking, mailing list management, a wiki, and other features. It is not a learning management system; instead, it is designed to introduce students to the tools that professional development teams use to coordinate their work. Unlike its industrial-strength cousins, SourceForge and CollabNet, DrProject is easy to install and administer. It has a very simple interface: students can learn all of its features in less than an hour. It provides a scripting interface that can be used to automate bulk or repetitive tasks.
