GNU OrgaDoc

heckert gnu head image

GNU OrgaDoc is designed to easily copy and maitain a pool of documents between computers. You can synchronise your documents pool with rsync or unison. You don't need to install a database server (like MySql or PostgreSql), a HTTP server, a script language (like php, perl, ...). You only need OrgaDoc to generate html pages and to perform queries.

OrgaDoc is easy to use and only the creation of some xml files describing your documents is needed, which can be generated. Read the section How to use it for details.
