AsciiDoc Nodes

Free the BIRT! Reports Made Easy!

AsciiDoc is a plain text markup language for writing technical content. It’s packed with semantic elements and equipped with features to modularize and reuse content. AsciiDoc content can be composed using a text editor, managed in a version control system, and published to multiple output formats.

Asciidoctor is a fast, open source, Ruby-based text processor for parsing AsciiDoc® into a document model and converting it to output formats such as HTML 5, DocBook 5, manual pages, PDF, EPUB 3, and other formats.

The AsciiDoc Nodes make use of AsciidoctorJ, the Java bindings for the Asciidoctor to extend KNIMEs reporting capabilities. Now you no longer have to assemble a full HTML report manually but can use the straightforward AsciiDoc Syntax to create your document and then render it to the various output formats.

AsciiDoc Nodes are under active development. Let us know what you think and what functionality you are missing. If you have questions, comments, or problems, we are happy to hear from you.

The AsciiDoc Nodes are free to use if you use them with free versions of the KNIME Analytics Platform – no matter if you use them commercially, for research, for educational, or for private purposes. The only limitation is a note in the footer of created PDF documents and the inability to provide user defined themes for PDF conversion. If you run them on a non-free, paid KNIME product (i.e. the “KNIME Server”), a paid license is mandatory. Follow the yellow “Buy Now” button to purchase a license for KNIME Server use. This “free-for-free” licensing model allows to fund the ongoing improvement, maintenance, and support of this software and make it available to a broad audience.
