Estimated workload
several weeks

The project is to create an authoring tool to create an ebook that works on mobile devices: Android, iOS or any other. The objective is to export spaces of wiki pages within an ePub book (a zip of XHTML files) that can be read comfortably on mobile devices, with or without internet access.

The software should complement the XWiki collaborative editing mechanism to support the author in previewing and verifying the display of the content on various devices (e.g. warning that a given tag is not going to work on the profile Aldiko on Android XVGA, or presenting on a window of classical device sizes to insure a reasonable layout is achieved). It should also apply media-conversion, e.g. scale image or adjust videos to ensure an embedding that is reasonable in size and that works on the target sizes and platforms.

A very successful contribution should, with a small amount of changes, allow developers to also export to other package formats such as Mobi, SCORM or Common Cartridge and maybe even deliver Android's APK applications, integrating Cordova on the server.

Discussion: is to happen on the xwiki-devs mailing-list as well as on the #xwiki IRC channels.

Delivery: open-source code (LGPL) using XWiki, Groovy, Velocity.
