Professor Dr. Monica Palmirani of the University of Bologna sends us the following news about the LIME legal document editor:
I’m happy to announce that LIME, the Language Independent Mark-up Web Editor, now is an open source tool, with MIT license for non-commercial purposes and for non-profit/government/research bodies: lime.cirsfid.unibo.it/
The demo permits registration functionality and so to test it with a personal set of documents.
It is possible to import doc, odt, pdf, xml, html, pdf files and to use parsers for detecting the structure and references (especially in Italian and Spanish documents). LIME exports documents in Akoma Ntoso XML, html, pdf, eBook.
It permits international features (e.g. English, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Romanian) and a high level of customization in the interface organization (button, label, order of the bars, etc.).
LIME was the subject of a hackathon that Professor Palmirani organized last year in Bologna.
