OASIS TC Open Repository: dita-stylesheets

This GitHub public repository ( ) was created at the request of the OASIS Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) TC as an OASIS TC Open Repository to support development of open source resources related to Technical Committee work.

While this TC Open Repository remains associated with the sponsor TC, its development priorities, leadership, intellectual property terms, participation rules, and other matters of governance are separate and distinct from the OASIS TC Process and related policies.

Statement of Purpose

Statement of Purpose for this OASIS TC Open Repository (dita-stylesheets) as proposed and approved [bis] by the TC:

This repository was created to support development and maintenance of the style sheets and other resources that are used to build OASIS-styled publications from DITA source. This project current can produce the following documents:

  • OASIS specifications
  • OASIS errata documents
  • OASIS committee notes

Additions to Statement of Purpose

Stylesheet plugin integration with DITA Open Toolkit

Plugin development is being done using dita-ot-3.5.3. Do the following to create the runtime environment:

  1. Install the version of DITA Open Toolkit (dita-ot) that is being used for development.
  2. Clone this repository to a temporary directory.
  3. Move the entire contents of the cloned directory (but not the cloned directory itself) to the dita-ot plugins directory. Important: Be sure to include hidden files and hidden directories in the move.
  4. If you are planning on contributing development work, update the .gitignore file in the plugins directory to exclude any additional plugins that you may have added after installing the dita-ot. This is important because we do not want those plugins being pushed back to GitHub.
  5. Run the dita command with the --install option.
