Subject [jira] [Commented] (COR-11) Make interface between docformat and webkit (prepare for e.g. Qt).
Date Mon, 19 Jan 2015 03:14:34 GMT


David Fisher commented on COR-11:

I agree that HTML is the API. That said we need some conventions about which variation we
want to expose to editing. Do we want to force clients to edit in an hierarchically grouped
view, or a flattened part by part view. I think that we should think of the following (and
I think that this is Peter's design.)

# HTML layer for editing / display in the client browser / application.
# DocFormat. Presents to the HTML layer a normalized HTML. Allows for preferred organization
for the filter. FIlter can choose to receive / provide HTML that requires normalization. This
layer preserves certain id tags that the original document understands.
# Filters. The have the ability to read out a file into HTML as well as ability to write.
A special feature is to update the document preserving features that are unknown to DocFormat
and HTML. Preserved content is purely in the realm of the filter.
