We're looking for good example texts to use! If you know of any, then please add them to your own github clone of the project and send a pull request.

Currently, we have one example text in the books/ directory, where we'd like the following improvements:

  • Clean up the HTML so that it's valid and well-formed HTML5 (or an HTML4.2, if necessary)
  • Organize the book so that it becomes one file per chapter
  • Set up the HTML files so that they easily can be converted into Template::Toolkit templates.

Stories and use cases

We're also looking for creative and novel usage stories. What would you do with an authoring tool that supports aspects? Tell us!
