My question is similar to this one, but with (hopefully) a clearly defined use case: sharing and reviewing basic tech docs with a minimal, intuitive GUI.
I'm producing technical documents using MS Word. These docs need to be reviewed, commented and have minimal additions & changes to their content, e.g. text, headings, tables.
I want to both 1. Track the changes 2. Accept/reject per change
In between focussing on getting the content right, a lot of issues come up (too many to list) around formatting, versioning, application compatibility etc.
It would be great if I could sidestep these and just
- maintain a single source in Markdown while
- providing a WYSIWYG "user interface" that only allows minimal interactions, i.e.:
- changing/adding/deleting text/numbers/tables
- commenting particular areas of text
In order to allow "users" to do these things without being in the Markdown workflow behind the scences, ideally this would be a Web-based editor with change tracking that outputs [some flavour of] Markdown.
Anyone know of such a thing? Or something that fits my requirements [explicit or as yet unconscious ;) ] even better?
This (hallo.js) is very close to what I'm talking about, I just need more headings (H3 etc.), commenting, visible change tracking, and simple tables in addition.
This (ice) is the sort of change tracking in mind.
