From Vincent at Punctum books… a participant’s view of the recent Paged.js workshop in Brussels.
The workshops for paged.js in Paris and Brussels are booked out. There will be more later in the year so stay tuned!
Paged.js is the open source pagination engine we are developing to support CSS paged media specifications. The development has progressed pretty fast, since starting in February this year. So far, we know of one commercial product and several really interesting open source projects that have integrated it. Paged.js has also been used to make its first print book (the Editoria manual made in a Book Sprint last month). We don’t consider it near a 1.0 yet, so this is pretty impressive!
We had one workshop in San Francisco last month. It was more of a paged.js core team meet really as it was a day after the Editoria community meeting and we didn’t much advertise it.
At the end of this month, there is a workshop (2 days) in Paris and one in Brussels (1 day). We have 46 people enlisted. It is close to our max. There might be a few seats left (it is a free workshop), so if you want to go, sign up here –https://www.pagedmedia.org/pagedmedia-prepostprint-workshop/
Demand seems pretty high as we have had several people that can’t make either date asking us to keep their names for the next workshop. We also have folks coming from the Netherlands and the US to attend. Pretty cool!
But stay tuned… we will have more workshops including NYC sometime in March and a few surprise other countries on the list… I’ll keep you posted!
Seems Paged.js is barely out of the gate and people are doing interesting things with it. Check out PanWriter – https://github.com/mb21/panwriter
A markdown text editor with simultaneous rendering to pages using Paged.js … pretty cool!
Paged.js is the JS pagination engine started in Feb of this year with my Shuttleworth Fellowship funds.
Sign up now 🙂 Paris and Brussels..
We had a cool full day Paged.js meeting yesterday. It was at the Aspiration office and we discussed all things Paged.js. The event carried on until the evening at a local bar (Casanova on Valencia) for drinks…as well as the rendering of a book… Julien can be seen in the pics rendering a book with Paged.js that Barbara from Book Sprints had facilitated that day at a one day conference in Hawaii… Book in one day anyone? !! !!!
First version of integration of paged.js (in-browser pagination) with Editoria…
It means the CSS can be edited in the browser and the book (right pane) is rendered accordingly. It can then exported to PDF…pretty cool…
From Anton Moglia.
paged.js is the tool we developed for paginating content in browsers to produce print-ready PDF, all styles etc controlled by CSS. Awesome logo.
…and it keeps on coming…example PDF from Julien using paged.js. HTML -> PDF using CSS to design and paged.js for the rendering. First page here, full PDF linked below.
