Here is a summary of my demo at DITA Europe 2018 in Rotterdam about publishing DITA content with the Open Toolkit “out Of The box”.
You have just started experimenting with DITA maps and topics and you’re wondering just how much you can do with the DITA-OT out of the box? Plenty, actually.
Let’s see how you can control certain aspects of your publications directly from the command line, through property files, in Ant builds or through publication scenarios in your editor or CCMS.
Parameters you might need most often involve output format, filter files, linking, labels and basic styling.
It’s worth giving them a try, before starting developing custom OT plugins and extensions.
