Discussion on ASCIIDOC Pros/Cons (installation taking 1.3 GB only)


Hello,

I am proud to start the talk on ASCIIDOC. I really like to concept of using human readable markup format. It is great to make daily work easier and more efficient. "Content is King"

Right, but, well, what's going wrong with actually the real programming content of this format.

What do think about this format Pros/Cons?
Let's open the discussion on ASCIIDOC Pros/Cons.

There is one important point about it. I fairly think that there must be a re-programming of it or something must be done. On a clean installation of less than 500 Mb, installation of ASCIIDoc requires just 1.3 Gb. Almost nothing right? I think that's a big disadvantage for its adoption.

ASCII is that complicated to handle using perl or python or java,...?

Have Fun Discussing about Markup Asciidoc file format.

Not for anyone who wants to get actual work done. I wouldn't blink at even twice the space it takes up if I needed that functionality.

Well, you could use markdown is is almost the same, no? Markdown is much lighter by installing pandoc.
