Using DreamWeaver templates, HTML generated from DITA sources can have its look and feel modified substantially — interactively, by a graphic designer by modifying CSS, along with the layout of “editable regions” and boilerplate. That styling does not need to be coded in the DITA toolkit, then, and does not need to be re-integrated into each subsequent release of the toolkit.
Why I chose the CDDL licensing model, when the project was hosted at Kenai.com.
A listing of operations that need to be carried by a system that wants to ensure reference integrity — so links remain valid as files and folders are moved or renamed.
A suite of utilities that converts HTML files into Linux man pages, where “man” is short for “manual”.
Many organizations are bogged down in tedious, repetitive tasks — especially when it comes to documentation. The solution is to automate! Automation improves efficiency, saves time, eliminates redundant operations, and reduces costly errors. Any time your people are thinking, “there must be a better way,” there probably is!
RuDi stands for Ruby-based Utilities for DITA processing. The idea is create a build system for DITA projects that is easy to use, and the same time very powerful — something that is accomplished by using the Ruby language and Ruby-based tools. (The project was originally hosted at
Kenai. Until it finds a new home the project code is contained in the RuDi zip file.)
