Project Summary

Official site: http://novelang.sourceforge.net

Blog : http://novelang.blogspot.com

Novelang takes plain text files and transforms them into nicely-formatted documents like PDF or HTML. Unlike mainstream word-processors, it keeps you focused on the text you type in and what it means, instead of struggling with how it should appear. It relies on the text editor of your choice, with a very simple syntax to add some formatting hints. You can see resulting documents from your Web browser or generate them from command-line.

Plain text is great as it is cross-platform and can be viewed under almost any condition. It takes less space and is easier to manipulate through automated processes, including search.

Novelang enforces a consistent presentation across a set of documents through stylesheets that can be customized. This page was produced with Novelang, using a dedicated stylesheet.

Novelang is a project started by Laurent Caillette, a Java architect eager of good tools to make great things. You can mail him on Users’mailing list or leave a comment on the Novelang blog (see links).
