Over the years I have followed and backed many technologies and sometimes I get it wrong. The substance.io libs is one such case – but also the pagination engine vivliostyle joined the list some years ago. We tried to collaborate with them but they weren’t interested. There was very little ‘open’ going on. Anyways… now I see the following:
And I have no idea whats going on. It says ‘former vivliostyle’ – no downloads, no listing of who is involved. Its all a little weird. Anyways. Due to these two orgs is why we are building the Wax Word Processor (on ProseMirror Libs), and Paged.js. As much as I hate to build stuff that doesn’t need to be built in these two cases it was a good decision to build these two critical pieces of publishing tech.
