I’m a Linux power user but not so much of a developer or coder. I would like to take whatever Bloom does to generate a printable PDF from an HTML doc and use that for a small project I’m working on (unrelated to a Bloom publication). The book I want to render contains both IPA and Burmese Unicode characters.
I want to test my theory that it would be a lot easier and more efficient to generate a PDF that contains complex fonts and Graphite rendering from an HTML file than it is to play with LaTeX plugins or something in LibreOffice.
There are non-FOSS options such as Prince and of course XLingPaper for XML input. However, Bloom already does such a good job rendering printable PDFs from underlying HTML and I would like to utilize that outside of the Bloom UI.
Could someone point me in the right direction?
