Fidus Writer

Real-time collaborative web-based online editor for academia

Fidus Writer is an open-source online editor that enables real-time collaboration among academic researchers. It supports exporting individual documents to various standard formats, but it lacks the ability to import and export document collections (books) to some of the most widely used formats, such as DOCX, ODT and JATS XML. This project aims to enhance the functionality and usability of Fidus Writer by including track changes on the collaborative editor (a sought after feature for many more official use cases), adding import and export filters for books, as well as a generic pandoc filter for documents , using the existing code base and infrastructure. This will allow Fidus Writer to reach a broader audience and increase its adoption in the academic community.
