documents - structuring, publishing in multiple formats and search
DescriptionSiSU is a lightweight markup based, command line oriented, document structuring, publishing and search, static content tool for document collections. With minimal preparation of a plain-text (UTF-8) file, using sisu markup syntax in your text editor of choice, SiSU can generate various document formats, most of which share a common object numbering system for locating content, including plain text, HTML, XHTML, XML, EPUB, OpenDocument text (ODF:ODT), LaTeX, PDF files, and populate an SQL database with objects (roughly paragraph-sized chunks) so searches may be performed and matches returned with that degree of granularity. Think of being able to finely match text in documents, using common object numbers, across different output formats and across languages if you have translations of the same document. For search, your criteria is met by these documents at these locations within each document (equally relevant across different output formats and languages). To be clear (if obvious) page numbers provide none of this functionality. Object numbering is particularly suitable for "published" works (finalized texts as opposed to works that are frequently changed or updated) for which it provides a fixed means of reference of content. Document outputs can also share provided semantic meta-data. SiSU also provides concordance files, document content certificates and manifests of generated output and the means to make book indexes that make use of its object numbering. Syntax highlighting and folding (outlining) files are provided for the Vim and Emacs editors. Dependencies for various features are taken care of in sisu related packages. The package sisu-complete installs the whole of SiSU. Additional document markup samples are provided in the package sisu-markup-samples which is found in the non-free archive. The licenses for the substantive content of the marked up documents provided is that provided by the author or original publisher. SiSU uses utf-8 & parses left to right. Currently supported languages: am bg bn br ca cs cy da de el en eo es et eu fi fr ga gl he hi hr hy ia is it ja ko la lo lt lv ml mr nl nn no oc pl pt pt_BR ro ru sa se sk sl sq sr sv ta te th tk tr uk ur us vi zh (see XeTeX polyglossia & cjk) SiSU works well under po4a translation management, for which an administrative sample Rakefile is provided with sisu_manual under markup-samples.
