DITA Integration for Drupal is a module which provides various tools to handle a DITA documentation. It's integrated with the popular DITA Open Toolkit.
Main features are:
You can upload dita tasks/concepts/documents.
You can use graphmind to build a DITA map from your uploaded topics.
You can convert your dita documentations into xhtml or pdf2, or you
can download them in tar.gz
You can schedule your conversions, and have them run on cron, or run
them immediately with a simple command in command line.
Create relation tables in the map with Drupal's taxonomy
With the Simple Dita Forms submodule, you can build simple tasks and
concepts with a form.
With the DITA feeds plugin, you can add a directory, from where any
new DITA topics will be crawled.
In this session I'll explain the concept of this module and what were the biggest challenges implementing an
integration module for the DITA XML format.
