The Aida project is two-fold: it defines a simple common markup language designed to describe structured text, and it implements a compiler that translates the Aida syntax into various target formats (HTML, LaTeX, Trac, Mediawiki, Text, Markdown, and others). The system is fast, flexible, and extensible. The core command, aida, is a strict parser (written using Bison and Flex), which analyzes files written in the Aida Markup Language and invokes callbacks in order to convert them to the target format. It embeds a Tcl language interpreter and the callbacks are written in Tcl. This makes it very easy to extend the library and to define new target formats. Furthermore, the Aida files are highly parameterizable via a header and the entire system is configurable at the admin and at the user level. It is also possible to evaluate Tcl code within an Aida file and thus create dynamic contents.
Snippetory is a general Java template engine based on passive templates. In passive templates, template code and logic are clearly separated from each other. The templates contains very simple mark up. By removing logic, templates are directly accessible, fully parametrized, and free of context, and can easily be reused. Navigation, code competition, and structuring of the code with methods and classes are supported.
UverseWiki is a modular open source PHP framework designed for text processing. Unlike most existing solutions, it is not regular expression-based but instead uses a recursive descent parser to build a document object model. After the parsing stage has been finished and the DOM is produced, the original source is discarded and all operations are performed on the document tree instead: nodes can be altered, serialized, or rendered into a particular format (such as HTML or RTF). The wiki syntax is language-neutral and the processing itself is carried out in UTF-8.
qPDF Notes is an Android PDF reader and markup tool that can annotate PDF documents, fill form fields, and save your changes. Saved documents are fully compliant with the international PDF standard ISO 32000-1 and Adobe Acrobat. It allows you to add graphical comments, sticky notes, text notes, and text markup (highlight, cross out, and underline). An efficient table view is provided for fast filling of forms. The interface supports multi-touch pinch to zoom, double tap to fit to screen width, continuous page view, and fast PDF search. PDFs can be sent by corporate email and to Dropbox, Evernote, or Bluetooth.
The DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite (DAPS) provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. It lets you create HTML (including Webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. It automatically takes care of validating and filtering (profiling) your sources and automatically converts images into a format best suited for the output format. You can easily create profiled source tarballs for translation or review. DAPS supports authors by providing linkchecker, validator, spellchecker, and editor macros. It is well suited to manage large documentation projects with multiple authors using the DAPS docmanager.
Oxygen XML Developer is an Oxygen distribution specially tuned for XML development, providing XML editing, XML conversion, XML Schema development, XSLT/ XQuery/ XPath execution and debugging, SOAP and WSDL testing, Native XML and relational database support, and XML instance generation.
