DITA Open Toolkit Build Status

The DITA Open Toolkit, or DITA-OT for short, is an open-source tool that provides processing for OASIS DITA content. See dita-ot.org for documentation, information about releases, and download packages.

Prerequisites

To build and use DITA-OT, you’ll need:

  • Java Development Kit 7 or newer

Building

  1. Clone the DITA-OT Git repository:

    git clone git://github.com/dita-ot/dita-ot.git
    
  2. Move to the DITA-OT directory:

    cd dita-ot
    
  3. Fetch the submodules:

    git submodule update --init --recursive
    
  4. In the root directory, run Gradle to compile the Java code and install plugins:

    ./gradlew
    

Usage

  1. Run the dita command to generate output:

    src/main/bin/dita [options]
    

    See the documentation for arguments and options.

Distribution

  1. In the root directory, set up build environment:

    ./gradlew
    
  2. Build distribution packages:

    ./gradlew dist
    

    Distribution packages are built in the build/distributions directory.

    If Gradle throws an error like java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space, you probably need to increase the maximum Java heap size. One way to do this is to set the GRADLE_OPTS environment variable to a value like -Xmx1024m.

    For more information on the -Xmx option, see Java SE Documentation.
