RIS: Chili Publisher: A browser-based layout tool – future-proof publishing?


A professional layout tool right there in your browser. Impossible, you say? Chili Publisher proves you wrong. Their claim was reason enough for the Real Innovation Seekers to have a closer look.

The online document editor allows the editing of text, images or tables directly in the web browser. The documents themselves can be generated with from various sources – PDF, XML and even InDesign files can be imported. The requirements of an own corporate design can be defined via rules and therefore made available to all users. It is also no problem to utilise own fonts, custom colours or variable data. The Chili 3D Viewer converts your layout data into 3D objects for direct rendering. We definitely feel that this is the way publishing will be done in the future!
