Subject: Re: Fw: [oslc-core] Specification authoring tools + usage of vocabs and shapes


Thx for the pointer. This looks like it will be useful when it comes time 
to producing the OASIS specification.

fyi, Kaz has been using Markdown, pandoc, and doclit to generate Turtle 
and HTML. This partially overlaps with your tool. We could still use your 
tool to generate HTML tables within the overall specification. I've asked 
Kaz to create a writeup of his approach.

This post to the PROMCODE list failed.  I think it has to do with me being 
an observer and not a member of the list.

Anyway, if you don't mind please forwarding to the list and interested in 
your feedback as well on this.

Hopefully your TC could find this tool as useful.  It is fairly limited on 
documentation of the extensions currently provided, I've been trying to 
keep the template spec complete with all the new features.

Sent by:        <oslc-core@lists.oasis-open.org>

For some time and in various WGs, we've discussed whether certain items 
are considered "spec" or not.  It also has been desired to limit the 
amount of specification development we need to do, so we've done some work 
in the past to automate generation of human readable HTML tables from 
things such as OSLC Resource Shapes. 

I've completed some initial work (some more to do), that shows promise in 
automating this.  So I wanted to share the progress with you. 

Take for example this sample specification, namely these 2 sections: 
Shapes : 
Vocabulary : 

To enable the first, all that is needed is to include the OASIS version of 
ReSpec and this bit of HTML: 

        <div title='RDF Shape for Template' 

and obviously provide the shape in Turtle format. 

Likewise for vocabulary definition, you can just do: 

        <div title='RDF Vocabulary for Template' 

This gives us great flexibility in being able to change the template and 
generation of the HTML without needing to go touch every spec under 
development.  Note, when we are ready to publish a document through the 
OASIS publication process it will be transformed to raw HTML and scripts 

I've already started to use this in real specs and is looking to be a 
great aide 

Feedback welcome (positive, problems, ideas to make it better)  Not 
welcoming criticism of my JS skills, well maybe on a different thread.
