Doctemplate (lp.net/doctemplate) now supports localized epub output with
a single command! (epub is a widely-used ebook format.)
That's in addition to html (two versions with different
styling/navigation), pdf, and docbook.
The doctemplate idea is: let doctemplate handle all the build and techy
bits and let writers write. And use standard customization layers for
visual design for each output type.
You can install it from this ppa:
Then, create an article project in a new directory with:
Build commands (from project root dir):
Update pots and pos from source:
Built localized outputs are in build/$type/$lang
Note: Launch epub output with FBReader app as follows:
Each output type (html, pdf, epub, pdf/fop) has built-in, standard
customization layers for parameters and xsl template overrides in each
project so you can modify visual design beyond the defaults.
Still working on the doctemplate-user-guide!
