SiSU

SiSU

SiSU (Structured information, Serialized Units) is a lightweight, open source, markup based, command line oriented, framework for structuring, publishing and searching documents.

SiSU both defines a markup syntax and provides an engine that produces open standards format outputs from documents prepared with SiSU markup.

With minimal preparation of a plain-text, (utf-8) file, using its native markup syntax in your text editor of choice, SiSU can generate various document formats (most of which share a common object numbering system for locating content), including plain text, html, xhtml, xml, epub, opendocument text (odf:odt), LaTeX, pdf files, and populate an SQL database with objects (roughly paragraph-sized chunks) so searches may be performed and matches returned with that degree of granularity: your search criteria is met by these documents and at these locations within each document. object numbering is particularly suitable for "published" works (finalized texts as opposed to works that are frequently changed or updated) for which it provides a fixed means of reference of content. document outputs also share semantic meta-data provided.

SiSU with very little markup instruction is able to produce relatively high quality PDF by virtue of being able to generate usable default LaTeX.
