Import DITA with "Import HTML" module

Hi,

I've successfully imported the "Growing Flowers" example from the DITA sample files that come with oXygen using the DITA XHTML to Simple HTML XSLT template. The DITA XML files have been transformed to XHTML for importing.

Modelling arbitrary XML in Drupal

A week ago I wrote a post here about how we could build a DITA CCMS in Drupal, I've now written a full blogpost about it, with a screencast that explains how it could work. You can check it on our blog, it's titled A free and open source DITA CCMS

Drupal as a DITA CCMS, the Drupal way

At Drupalcamp Cluj in Romania I got really excited again about the possibility for building a CCMS (component content management system) in Drupal.

Ages ago when we did our first experiments with DITA in Drupal this was our goal. We did a prototype for a tool that was able to do single pass transformations of topics, allowed you to manage DITA maps in a mindmap and that had a form for creating DITA topics.

DITA Publishing on Drupal

Per gippy's request, I started this thread.

Working as a Technical Writer in a software company, I am responsible for publishing documentation on Drupal. There is a need to shift from PDF publishing to online publishing on Drupal.

After doing careful research on Drupal.org, I found the Import HTML module. Since we author on FrameMaker DITA authoring tool, a list of DITA files are created. To be able to import, we convert the DITA files to XHTML using DITA-OT. This process is straightforward.

OASIS DITA TC: RFP for dita.xml.org site (currently Drupal-based)

Hi,

the OASIS DITA technical committees have published a RFP for their official website "to put more DITA in dita.xml.org". The site is currently powered by Drupal (6?).

"The Drupal implementation for dita.xml.org has been a long-standing source of pain, and we want to redo the site in early 2015," they write. Shouldn't that be a challenge for the Drupal community and/or some of the larger Drupal companies to prove them wrong?

Building an awesome technical communication CMS

In the not too distant future - perhaps soon after D7 work is finished - the Drupal handbooks will move to their own site within Drupal.org and hopefully the doc folks will then have much more control over their tools and templates. While it's very exciting to think that we'll finally be able to address some of our challenges - just adding Views would be amazing - I've been thinking that there's an opportunity here to do something that is WAY more awesome. Something that could return huge dividends to the Drupal docs.
