Duration: 1 hour

Docs as code is a philosophy according to which you should write documentation using the same tools and workflows that software developers use to write code. But it's not so much about the tools, as it is about the workflows and practices involved, such as continuous integration or version control. 

During this event, we will have a look at such a setup using open-source tools and standards that include:

  • DITA, as the plain text format we'll use, because it fits the profile and brings additional benefits to the mix: semantics, content reuse, publishing options. 
  • Storage and version control using Git (trunk-based development). 
  • Project validation in continuous integration pipelines.
  • Translation workflows based on Fluenta:
    • Creating and sharing a Fluenta configuration.
    • Sending the DITA project to the translation service provider as XLIFF.
    • Generating the translated version of the DITA project once the XLIFF returns from translation.
