WebDjVuTextEd - online DjVu editor development (2014-2015)

(398 Reads )

Exisitng editors for text data DjVu files are quite limited, like for example DjVuSmooth. So I've implemented a new editor in JavaScript, that allows editing both the strucutre of the text (paragraphs, lines, words,...) and the coordinates of the text boxes by simply dragging with the mouse, features like create, delete, merge are also available. 

Download from SourceForge WebDjVuTextEd or try the online demo.

My work

The full editor implemented in JavaScript on client side, using jsTree, draggable boxes, several JS libraries. There is a small PHP and ASP.NET server side file-save backend.

I've creted a Hungarian info site for DjVu file format and DIY book scanning techniques: www.djvu.hu.

DjVu editor features

  • View text layer over the scanned book page, similar to DjVu viewers
  • View text data in tree structure besides the image
  • Edit text structure: modify, create new nodes, delete, cut&paste, merge..
  • Edit cooridiate boxes of words: drag sides to resize, move
  • Spellchecker (requires PHP server side)
  • Loads data from DjVuLibre 'djvutoxml' export, loads images from
    DjVuLibre ddjvu export. Saves data to XML that you can import with
    DjVuLibre djvuxmlparser
