The electronic document generator


Novelang transforms text files, written with a wiki-like syntax, into nicely-formatted documents like PDF or HTML, using customizable stylesheets. Novelang targets professional writers who need to focus on the content, letting the automated rendition do the boring job.

Novelang retains the spirit of compiler-based development tools, where the machine performs all possible validations before producing the final output. Novelang’s unique fine-grained parsing grabs text details like parenthesized blocks or punctuation, and enforces consistent structure and rendering.

Novelang is a project started by Laurent Caillette, a Java architect who believes in the power of simple, reliable tools. You can mail him on Users mailing list or leave a comment on the Novelang blog (see links).
