HTML2Print, a F/LOSS publishing workflow for M├ędor

BY GIJS DE HEIJ
@ VOL 4 ON NOV 24, 2016

Open Source Publishing has always been experimenting with the tools they use to produce graphic design.  Using only free and libre tools, they have used everything from spreadsheets to tools for automated scientific publishing to graph visualization software. Using such tools, especially those not meant for design initially, influences the design and design process and allows for new creative possibilities. Increasingly, OSP also produces their own tools. In this presentation OSP members, Gijs de Heij and Alexandre Leray will show html2print: a tool that uses web technologies to produce print documents. Its approach is a hybrid between the code based approach found in HTML and CSS and in scientific publishing tools like LaTeX, and canvas-based tools like Scribus and InDesign. HTML2Print combines the structured editing of generative tools with the short feedback loop and flexibility of a WYSIWYG-editor. It does this while using standard web technologies HTML, CSS and JavaScript, therefore benefitting from the lively ecosystem around these technologies.

In this pecha kucha Gijs and Alex will present the collective OSP and its values and they will explain the advantages of using web-technologies in a hybrid publishing workflow. And speak about their experiences of using these tools to produce the Médor magazine.
