SiSU is a lightweight markup based, command line oriented, document
structuring, publishing and search framework for document collections.
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, 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
SiSU also provides concordance files, document content certificates and
manifests of generated output.
man pages, and interactive help are provided.
Dependencies for additional features are taken care of in sisu related
The dummy package sisu-complete together with sisu-markup-samples installs
the whole of SiSU.
