Description: documents - structuring, publishing in multiple formats and search
SiSU is a lightweight markup based, command line oriented, document
- structuring, publishing and search framework for document collections.
+ 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 a text editor of your 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 being able to finely match
- text in documents, using object numbers, across different output formats and
- across languages if you have translations of the same document. Search results
- can be an index of documents and object numbers within them, 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. SiSU provides the means to make book indexes
- that make use of its object numbering.

.
- A vim syntax highlighting file and an ftplugin with folds for sisu markup is
- provided. Vim 7 includes syntax highlighting for SiSU. Some syntax hilighting
- is also available for Emacs and a few other editors.
+ 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.
