In the Proxima project we are developing a generic presentation-oriented editor for structured documents.
- Proxima is a generic editor. This means that the editor can be instantiated for arbitrary document types, supplemented by parser and presentation sheets. The content of a Proxima document can be mixed text, images and diagrams.
- Proxima is a presentation-oriented editor. This means that the user performs the edit operations on the WYSIWYG screen presentation of the document.
- Proxima is aware of the structure of the document. Even while editing the presentation of the document, the edit operations can be structural. For example, a section can be changed into a subsection.
Another innovative feature of Proxima is that it offers generic support for specifying content-dependent computations. For example, it is possible to create a Table of Contents of a document that is automatically updated as chapters or sections are added or modified.
Two example editors have been implemented with Proxima:
How to obtain and install the Proxima prototype.
The Proxima project has received a grant from the NLnet foundation for the development of a web-based version of Proxima! More details can be found at Proxima 2.0
