  • Ticket #927 – Description

    initial v2  
    1 We have established the viability of using Libre Office Writer 'flat XML' (.fodt) files with GitHub version control as a platform for writing the new !SasView Tutorials. 
     1We have established the viability of using !LibreOffice Writer 'flat XML' (.fodt) files with !GitHub version control as a platform for writing the new !SasView Tutorials.

    33Users will want these Tutorials in easily accessible, portable, formats. Certainly html, pdf (so they can print them), and possibly eBook. 
     
    55We therefore need to be able to build these formats from the .fodt 
    66 
    7 The obvious package to use to do this is !PanDoc. 
     7Our initial idea had been to do this with !PanDoc... until we discovered that whilst !PanDoc supports the !OpenDocument Text (.odt) format, it doesn't support .fodt! So we might just as well do the delivery format conversions with !LibreOffice.

    9 NB: !PanDoc builds pdf via LaTeX, adding impetus to fixing #510 
     9!LibreOffice can be run from the command line. Invoke as {pathto}soffice.
