DAISY Pipeline 20111215

The DAISY Pipeline is a generic framework for document- and DTB-related pipelined transformations. The DAISY Pipeline project is fundamentally a collaborative multi-organization, created by and for the DAISY community. It has been launched in 2005 and is maintained by the DAISY Consortium. The DAISY Pipeline software components are cross-platform and open source (released under the business-friendly LGPL). High Level Goals The objective of the DAISY Pipeline project is to efficiently and economically meet the increasing needs for conversion and transformation utilities within the DAISY community. This translates in the following high-level goals:

  • Support the single source master concept
    A pivot document format (e.g. XML DTBook) is used to represent the book material before publishing it to the possible output formats. It allows to decouple the production and publishing phases: on the one hand the production is a matter of converting an input format to the pivot format, on the other hand the publishing is a matter of converting the pivot format to the output format. Documents in the pivot format can be stored by organizations, and output formats can be generated from it on demand.

  • Support transformations at the production, publishing and maintenance stages
    The production is an automated, non-interactive conversion of input content into DAISY content, possibly used in conjunction with manual editing environments. The Pipeline supports for instance supports the following formats: WordML 2003, ODF (OpenOffice.org), RTF, XHTML, Audacity, etc.
    The publishing stage is the conversion of documents into various output formats. The Pipeline for instance supports the following formats: Daisy 2.02 DTBs, DAISY/NISO Z39.86 2005 DTBs, Open eBook (OPS 2.0, OCF), XHTML, RTF, LaTeX
    The maintenance involves manipulation of existing content such as audio encoding, dtbook repair, format migration (e.g. from DAISY 2.02 to DAISY 3).

  • Minimize overlap and duplication
    The collaborative nature of the project aims at reducing the duplication of effort and ensuring maximum sharing of best practices amongst the community.

  • Enable creation of common, reusable components
    Organization shall be able to reuse the Pipeline functionality in multiple deployment scenarios. Organizations are free to contribute components in both for-profit and not-for-profit contexts.
