Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Re: Tools to make DocBook easier

Hi Norman,

Nice to see a Gradle toolchain for creating DocBook output. Thanks for that.

May I ask where does the code for the  'org.docbook.task' Gradle plug-in lives?

Best regards, Lars

I'm just in the process of finishing up a first release of a tool
to make DocBook publishing easier with gradle. Given doc.xml, written
in DocBook, this build.gradle file will download all of the necessary
dependencies and run the transformations.

buildscript {
  repositories {
    maven { url "http://maven.restlet.org" }

  dependencies {
    classpath group: 'org.docbook', name: 'docbook-xslt2', version: '2.0.14'
    classpath group: 'com.xmlcalabash', name: 'xmlcalabash1-print', version: '1.1.4'

repositories {

apply plugin: 'org.docbook.task'

import org.docbook.DocBookTask

task publishhtml5(type: DocBookTask) {
  format "html"
  input "doc.xml"
  output "index.html"

task publishxhtml(type: DocBookTask) {
  format "xhtml"
  input "doc.xml"
  output "index.html"

task publishpdf(type: DocBookTask) {
  format "foprint"
  input "doc.xml"
  pdf "doc.pdf"

Needs documentation and such, but it does at least run now. :-)
