Richie Rich is an HTML document editor that runs within a Web browser. Unlike other in-line HTML editors, this operates straight on the DOM to avoid incongruities between what is visible in the front end and the HTML that is created in the back end. It supports undo, mouse selection, cursor positioning, and creation of headings, paragraphs, lists, links, bold, italic, and underline.
The docbookm package is contributed with LayManSys and contains very simple XSLT drivers for generating XHTML chunks from DocBook XML. This package does not require an installation; you only have to unzip the package's contents into a directory of your choice and start using it. There is no special documentation available. Use the file abstract.xsl for transforming an abstract and section.xsl for transforming sections. All other .xsl files are only includes needed by those two.
Pandoc is a Haskell library for converting from one markup format to another, and a command-line tool that uses this library. It can read markdown and (subsets of) reStructuredText, HTML, and LaTeX, and it can write markdown, reStructuredText, HTML, LaTeX, DocBook, OpenDocument XML, RTF, ODT, GNU Texinfo, MediaWiki markup, and S5 HTML slide shows. Pandoc extends standard markdown syntax with footnotes, embedded LaTeX, and more. A compatibility mode is provided for those who need a drop-in replacement for Markdown.pl. Included wrapper scripts make it easy to convert markdown to PDFs and Web pages to markdown documents. It has a modular design where the addition of a new input or output format requires only the addition of a reader or writer module.
Advanced Website Creator is a Web development environment. Created websites use an MVC framework written in PHP 5 and a simple database abstraction layer. At present the database layer supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite as backends. All PHP classes are auto-loaded, so there is no need to include() or require() files manually. Search engine friendly URLs are supported via mod_rewrite. The program has wizards for quick generation of forms and CRUD pages.
The Simple HTML Parser is a fast HTML parser for PHP 5 that might be described as a stream parser. It divides HTML into nodes (tags, text, or comments) and returns them one at a time in the order they appear in the source. It was inspired by HTML Parser for PHP-4 but was written from the ground up with speed as the primary goal.
Rextile allows you to build XHTML documents and entire Web sites with ease. You write text using Textile (a format much more concise than XHTML), automate document parts with Ruby scripting, and generate the site offline (the server gets static XHTML). Rextile was inspired by Xilize. It uses RedCloth to convert Textile to XHTML, erb to run script blocks, and Hpricot for DOM manipulation.
XMacroJ is an XML macro language for building text documents from XML components. XMacroJ removes the reliance on using the include directives and frees the programmer from locking the development directly into a specific framework. Using XMacroJ, the developer can loosely couple the development process to a framework by developing macros that wrap the framework and then creating target documents that are based on the macros. If the developer chooses to use a different framework, then only the macros are changed and the target documents can be recompiled.
