Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2578) Migrate away from LaTeX generation
Date Fri, 28 Mar 2014 02:45:15 GMT


Billie Rinaldi commented on ACCUMULO-2578:

Ideally the documentation format would be near plain text and would be easily converted to
both HTML and PDF.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Accumulo

> LaTeX is bulky, it's results are not easily viewed with a text editor, and it's not easy
to convert to HTML for display on the project website.
> We should migrate away from LaTeX and find a format that satisfies these things, making
it easier to consolidate and organize the available documentation.
> Preferably, the solution to this should not require platform-specific build tools (like
pdflatex and LaTeX styles are currently required). Ideally, the solution should be able to
build with Java/Maven plugin without any such extra tools (except what Maven downloads as
dependencies of the plugin).
