OpenCartable is an online tool for teachers and their students organized around textbooks and bibliographies of links to Web sites or uploaded files. The "todo" links (or resources) can be affected as works that the student answers and the teacher corrects and marks. The focus is on simplicity, with students only using three pages: their desk, textbooks, and works. Users are grouped in a school, and teachers manage their students through groups. The contents are written as standard DocBook files plus a LOM (Learning Object Metadata) schema that can be shared among OpenCartable servers using simple tools like rsync.
XFlows is an XML and XSLT integrated solution that helps you to create complex scenarios, transform a set of files with XSLT, publish your result into a remote server, export and import data with your database using XML files, and convert your HTML documents to XML. It runs in batch and user interface modes and can be connected to your own parser or JDBC driver for a custom database. Several log levels and platforms are available in batch mode, and mail support is included.
SilkPage is an XML-based Web publishing framework that has evolved from the Docbook Website. With strong foundations in XML, it is a publishing framework with a focus on Web standards and usability. It is particularly suited for publishing personal websites, though it is by no means limited to them.
AsciiDoc is a text document format for writing short documents, articles, books, and UNIX man pages. AsciiDoc files can be translated to HTML and DocBook markups using the asciidoc(1) command. AsciiDoc is highly configurable: both the AsciiDoc source file syntax and the backend output markups (which can be almost any type of SGML/XML markup) can be customized and extended by the user.
4Suite XML is a Python-based toolkit for XML application development. It features a library of integrated tools for XML processing, implementing open technologies such as DOM, SAX, XPath, XSLT, XInclude, XPointer, XLink, XUpdate, RELAX NG, and XML/SGML Catalogs. The RDF and Repository components of 4Suite are separate packages that must be installed separately, on top of 4Suite XML.
refdb-mode is a minor mode for Emacs that implements an interface to RefDB, a reference management and bibliography tool for SGML, XML, LaTeX, and Muse documents. It integrates nicely with psgml, nxml-mode, AucTeX, and muse-mode. refdb-mode provides the complete functionality of the RefDB command line clients from a graphical interface. You can add and edit references, notes, and styles, run queries, and insert the results as citations into your DocBook, TEI, LaTeX, or Muse documents. You can also look up cited references in the database right from your document. You can create, transform, and view these documents with a mouse click. This amounts to an integrated authoring environment for markup languages with reference management and bibliography support.
Annotate provides an annotation facility for DocBook documents. It enables visitors to an online version of a DocBook document to add comments to any paragraph or chapter of the document. It extends the DocBook XSL stylesheets, leading to modified HTML output which contains anchors at those places where annotations can be made. Comments and notes are stored in a DBMS. A CGI program then merges the HTML document and the comments to produce the output for the visitor.
