I am looking to create an intranet document management solution that
take advantage of Ruby/Rails/Subversion etc.
I want to get away from document management using MS Word, Excel etc.
Can anyone recommend a direction I should investigate?
I am currently gathering information on Docbook, Latex, ODF,ODT,ODG,ODP,
TinyMCE and others as I find them.
Ideally I would like to convert manuals that are several hundred pages
in MS Word format into a format that lends itself to be managed under
Subversion. I would like to be able to compare revisions side by side
see exactly who made what changes. I would also like to be able to
different end user formatted documents from one source document i.e.
–> pdf or html or wml etc…
Is anyone doing this currently and can you point me to some reading
for accomplishing this under RoR. I do not mind doing the work as Rails
been a joy to use so far in my limited experiences as a ROR newbie!
