S1000D

rockyallen
Does anyone have any ideas or experience in using Asciidoctor with S1000D, or would be interested in using it?

S100D is a large and complex specification for creating technical publications (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S1000D).
It is normally implemented using expensive commercial packages like Arbortext. The niche I am interested in (as a subsystem supplier) is providing my technical data (currently in asciidoc) to my customer in S1000D format so that they can generate the full equipment documentation.

The tools that I think this would need are:
Asciidoc to data module conversion
Asciidoc to publication module (or publication module to asciidoc) so that asciidoctor can be used to preview the output.

I'm not familiar with the S1000D format, but given it's an XML specification, I can say it's the bread and butter of Asciidoctor. Generating it would be very similar to the DocBook (built-in) and Mallard (https://github.com/asciidoctor/asciidoctor-mallard) converters. And converting to formats such as this are the value add of Asciidoctor.

If you need help getting started, don't hesitate to ask. You may also be interested in join the Asciidoctor channel on gitter at https://gitter.im/asciidoctor/asciidoctor.

Cheers,
