pdbf-toolkit – A Toolkit for Creat­ing Jan­i­form Data Doc­u­ments

PDBF doc­u­ments are a hy­brid for­mat. They are a valid PDF and a valid HTML page at the same time. You can now op­tion­ally add an Vir­tu­alBox OVA file with a com­plete op­er­at­ing sys­tem to the PDBF doc­u­ment. This means that the re­sult­ing file is a valid PDF, HTML, and OVA file at the same time.

If you change the file ex­ten­sion to PDF and open it with an PDF viewer, you can see the static part of the doc­u­ment. If you change the file ex­ten­sion to HTML and open it with a Browser (cur­rently Chrome, Fire­fox, Sa­fari, and IE 10 are sup­ported), you can see the dy­namic part of the doc­u­ment. And if an ova file is at­tached you can also change the file ex­ten­sion to OVA and in­stall and run the at­tached op­er­at­ing sys­tem.

The dif­fer­ence be­tween the PDF and the HTML ver­sion is that the PDF ver­sion con­tains a static ver­sion of all PDBF el­e­ments, whereas the HTML ver­sion is dy­namic. For ex­am­ple you can zoom into graphs, tem­porar­ily re­move dataseries from the graph, in­spect and change the un­der­ling query of the PDBF el­e­ment and see the re­sult of the change di­rectly in the browser. This ap­proach works com­pletely of­fline. No in­ter­net con­nec­tion is re­quired, nei­ther at com­pile time, nor at view­ing time.

The toolkit is li­censed un­der the MIT Li­cense.
