What is XMLmind DITA Converter?
--------------------------------------------------------------

XMLmind DITA Converter (ditac for short) is a serious alternative to the
DITA Open Toolkit.

Out of the box, ditac allows to convert the most complex DITA 1.0, 1.1,
1.2 and 1.3 documents to production-quality XHTML 1.0, XHTML 1.1, HTML
4.01, (X)HTML 5, Web Help, Java™ Help, HTML Help, Eclipse Help, EPUB 2,
EPUB 3, PDF, PostScript®, RTF, WordprocessingML (Word 2003+), Office
Open XML (.docx, Word 2007+), OpenDocument (.odt, OpenOffice/LibreOffice
2+).

Like the DITA OT, ditac is free, open source, software.

Declarative Amsterdam 2021, Call for Presentations

 

Declarative Amsterdam 2021, Call for Presentations
 
On 4 and 5 November 2021, the third Declarative Amsterdam conference will take place at CWI, Science Park, Amsterdam.
 
The conference focuses on the technologies and methods used for declarative programming and declarative data.
 
Declarative programming (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Declarative_programming) is a style of programming that expresses the logic of computation without describing its control flow.  It allows you to focus on the 'what' of a program, rather than the 'how'. Declarative programs can be constructed in a fraction of the time, using much less code than a traditional computer program. Declarative methods for programming and data modelling can help avoid making the mistakes that have lead to failing software projects for several decades.
 
Declarative Amsterdam will have presentations on past experiences, current trends and future perspectives in fields such as functional programming, declarative data modelling, databases, XML and related technologies, JSON, CSS, semantic web, data science, data visualization, grammars, parsing, and domain-specific languages.

We anticipate by November that we will be able to hold the conference face-to-face, but either way, we are planning to broadcast live as well.
 
The first day will feature tutorials, combining presentations and hands-on sessions to give an introduction to specific topics.

The second day is a symposium, and will consist of shorter presentations.  Speakers can discuss new ideas, frameworks, applications of declarative methods, and best practices.
 
Call for Presentations
 
We invite practitioners, software architects and engineers, academic researchers and others to submit a proposal for a tutorial or a presentation.
 
Tutorials can be between 1.5 and 2.5 hours, and preferably include hands-on sessions for participants. Presentations on the second day can be between 20 and 45 minutes. We plan to create the possibility of online presentation via video.
 
Proposals should at least include a title, duration and summary (90 - 200 words), but may also be a full paper. Speakers have the option of submitting a full paper or slides, to be published on the Declarative Amsterdam website.
 
Please send proposals to call@...
 
Timeline
 
Submission deadline: 31 July
Acceptance: Beginning of September
Conference: 4/5 November.

For papers and topics from previous years, see the website:

Re: Something like ditaval, but for topics or smaller?

Chris Papademetrious
 

Hi Kris, Chris, (!!)

Our team has been using DITA for almost two years. Our writers are just now getting comfortable working with maps via Oxygen's GUI. The creation and use of DITAVAL files is well beyond their comfort level. (We do use DITAVAL files for @product filtering, but I maintain those and the writers don't know the details.)

I have wished for a more ad-hoc form of filtering that (1) uses attributes instead of files to locally impose a condition, and (2) works for both map and topic elements. For example, something like this:

<profiling audience="foo">
  <ul conref="supersetList"><li/></ul>
</profiling>

where the attribute values of a <profiling> element *apply* conditions, rather than being affected by them. (I don't claim to have thought through all the details...)

About six months ago, I had a user who wanted to reuse the same table in two places in their book, but a subset of rows in each location (just like Chris's question). Asking the writer to use DITAVAL was not an option. There wasn't even an obvious profiling attribute to use. Maybe @audience="table1" and @audience="table2"?

So although DITA was mechanically capable of the request, the writer mechanics weren't feasible. They ended up duplicating and modifying the table. It made me sad.

Hi Radu,

We upload our HTML OLH content to an AWS server, then make it accessible to our users via a Salesforce/Coveo portal.

Re: Need new DITA CMS - Any suggestions?

Michael McLoughlin
 

I have to agree with Mica - do you really need a CCMS here? We moved 18 months ago from a leading DITA CCMS because it was buggy and too expensive to Git/Github + OxygenXML and haven't looked back. We also took the opportunity to switch from unnecessary topic specialisations and remove some of the extra crud added by the CCMS. This took a little work with some bash scripts and the Oxygen XML refactor tool. It tool a month or so planning but we were able to do the entire move over a weekend. A few things we learned in the process:

1. Plan your repository architecture well in GitHub, what doc sets will live where, what branching structure you'll use, and how content can be shared between repos (we used git subtrees for that but there are other solutions such as the git subrepo tool).
2. Make sure the team are trained well on Git workflows. Tools like GitHub Desktop and the Oxygen Git plugin make that a lot easier for those team members who don't like the Git CLI commands.
3. Make sure you train your team on Oxygen. I think most people when they become confident with Oxygen never want to write DITA in anything else.
4. Take advantage of Github Actions for CI/CD stuff.

Re: Need new DITA CMS - Any suggestions?

Kendall User
 

Along with those suggestions, if you have condition names that are not one of the attribute names in OOTB DITA, you would need to either add specialized attributes or convert them in some way. For example, if you have a condition named sue, there's no attribute named sue.

Then there variables which would need to get converted to keydefs or you could use conrefs.

And, there are publication objects and baselines, which don't map to standard DITA types. You would need to match publications' conditions with ditaval files. Baselines could be made into git tags if you do the migration so that revisions match up with object versions in the CMS.

Not a problem Tom 😊

 

This isn’t the forum for us to push our wares but please have a look at the website – we also have experience of migrating from Tridion to Z=XDocs – all DITA is not always equal.

Hi, Elizabeth.

Please give the group my contact information. I have expert-level experience both with the SDL CCMS and with transitioning users of that CCMS to alternatives. GitHub and SVN are possible choices (if the group will not be localizing content), and there also are some CCMS that they might want to consider.

Eberlein Consulting could assist with all or any of the following, depending on the company's requirements:

  • Selection of a CCMS or version control system
  • Selection of an XML editor
  • Configuration of the XML editor to make the authoring environment as productive and user-friendly as possible
  • Development of DTDs for their new environment
  • Preparation of DITA source for the new environment
  • Stylesheets for PDF, HTML5, etc.
  • Documentation of processes for the new environment
Best,
Kris

Re: Need new DITA CMS - Any suggestions?

ekimber@contrext.com
 

I second Mica's suggestion: Using Oxygen for authoring is always an excellent choice and you then have a number of content management options, including using git, as Mica points out.

There have been many presentations at the various DITA conferences over the last few years on using git to manage DITA content.

There are a number of easy-to-use hosted git repositories you can choose from, including GitHub, BitBucket, GitLab, and Azure DevOps (which basically integrates GitHub into a Jira-style issue tracker and continuous integration platform--I had never used Azure DevOps before a few days ago but I just went through the exercise of setting up a new DevOps instance as test and was pleasantly easy to set up a git repo and connect it to an existing local repo and set up a custom agile project management workflow--in a couple of hours I was ready go).

Cheers,

Eliot

Hi Elizabeth,

I think that git + oxygen + oxygen's git plugin works pretty well. It'll be difficult to find a usable solution much cheaper than that. Even better if someone on the team understands git well, as that seems to be a rub on many tech pubs teams.

As far as getting content out of tridion docs, it depends on how much dependency the content has on ishconditions-- if the content's conditions are relatively straight forward, then someone should be able to write some xslt to transfer the ishconditions over to the standard dita conditional attributes. If the ishconditions use a lot of AND and OR statements, the content will likely need some restructuring to achieve the same publishing ends with dita conditions as with ishcondotions.

As for getting content out of tridion docs, I believe you have two choices: do the publication export out of the web ui (which dumps UTF-16 formatted XML with some processing instructions, then convert that to normal UTF-8 dita) or use the dita-ot's dita normalize output (you'll get standard dita out of that).

Hope that helps.

Hi Elizabeth,

We have lots of experience with CCMS transitions.

In addition to the issues you've already mentioned, they will need to strip out the proprietary CCMS bits (such as variables, libraries, and conditionals) and map them to standard DITA constructs.

We would be happy to help if consulting support is in the plan.

There used to be a DITA-to-Confluence plugin years ago, but A) You needed the Confluence server to use it (where I was working at the time, we only had the Client) and B) I am not certain the plugin exists anymore.

From my point of view, it would be worth it if we could also export from Confluence to DITA, but I am not aware of anyone doing that.

Thanks
Ozana
