I prefer normal plain text files over OpenOffice files, because there are much smaller and the editing is faster. Most text editors open faster than OpenOffice or any other office application.
What I need:
- The "source" needs to be readable, with little overhead.
- It should be compilable in Linux/maven
- There should be a program (editor) with a design view -> executing the syntax
I was thinking something like apt Doxia. I really like the syntax, but I do not want to run Maven or open Eclipe everytime I want to see the contend rendered (showing the tables, listings and so on)
In a perfect world I would use Notepad++ / scite(?) with a nice plugin to write apt files. Any ideas?
