This project is not part of the GNU Project.


The goal of Tidydoc is to make documentation organization easier. It addresses the following problems:

  • Add documents to a pool of documents. Give them the right names and put them into the right directories.
  • Reorganize them a posteriori.
  • Generate a set of HTML pages to browse your documents.
  • Generate a bibtex file referencing all your documents.

You can add documents using the web interface or any file transfer program, such as scp. Tidydoc can then generate HTML files indexing your documents. A simple description file is required for each document. No additional tool is required, a standard Unix system (or Windows/Cygwin) with a Python interpreter will do the job.

Every operation can be done through a web interface if you are running a web server (e.g. Apache) or using the embedded, lightweight web server.

Tidydoc is written in Python in a spirit of flexibility and easy tweaking, but its default behavior should fit the needs of most people.
