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

Arthur and Steve,

Thank you for forwarding the email. It is a very good news for me.

I summed up my approach at [1]. It only reduces the cost of writing HTML.
However, the consistency between Turtle block and table written in Markdown
needs to be verified by human(yes, just a little bit easier than before
because they are in the same file). This means editing on them are easier
than before, but we still have risk to make inconsistent document.

In your approach, tables are automatically generated. This means no risk
left, but still need to write some HTML or wiki. So I think in our PROMCODE
TC, we can combine them as: (1)writing documents in Markdown, (2) and
generate tables and Turtle block from Turtle file to HTML, (3) then combine
them. At least, Turtle files and Markdown files should be version controlled
in this case. I will try this next time.

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.

vocabs and shapes

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.
