Table of contents

This document is a technical description of how the zip file is built. The zip file contains all elements in the book and are rendered as html files. You must have basic knowledge in html and xml for implementation usage.
It's also possible to just open the index.html file to do a basic navigation through the content.

Contents of the zip file

The zip file contains all articles, folders, documents and links in your handbook.

Ex: Content of the zip file

Articles/folders are rendered as html files and placed in the «Pages» folder. Structure of the book is converted to an xml document. The index.html contains all elements in the root level of the handbook. All documents used in the book are placed in the folder «Resources»

Structure.xml file

This file contains all information about the structure of the book. An example of the file is copied in figure 1.  All <element> tag inside <contents> are contents of the book. Each <element> could be a file, link, article or folder. Figure 2 describes information of attributes inside <element>. An element with type="Folder" can contain several <element>.

Figure 1: Example of the structure.xml file
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16">
	<element name="..." type="Article" value="122415.html" isvisible="1" itemid=".20337." contextid="122312" />
	<element name="..." type="Folder" value="122416.html" isvisible="1" itemid="20338" contextid="122416">
    	<element name="..." type="Article" value="122417.html" isvisible="0" itemid="20339" contextid="122417" /> 
    	<element name="..." type="Article" value="122421.html" isvisible="1" itemid="20342" contextid="122421" culturecode="nb-NO"/>

ValuePointer to name of rendered html file in Pages folder, or resource in resource folder if type is resource
IsVisibleBool: 0 or 1 if the element is visible for end users in the handbook
ItemIdUnique Id for all elements. Can be used for integration logic.
ContextIdContext id of the element. Corresponds to the id in end user. Also name of rendered html file
CultureCodeLanguage code of the element

Index.html file

This file is the root level of the book. Open it in web browser to navigate. It contains links to all elements that belong to the root level, inside <div id="content">. 

Figure 3: Example of the index.html file
		<div id="content">
			<h1>Utvikler lokal 3</h1>
				<li><a href="Pages/122411.html">[name of element]</a></li>
				<li><a href="./Resources/101-04.doc">[name of a document]</a></li>

Pages folder

Pages folder contains all rendered html files. It could be a catalog, an article or a link.

Figure 4: Example of the pages.html file
<!DOCTYPE html>
		<div id="realurl" data-target="http://[link to the book]/122414/external">
			<a href="http://[link to the book]/122414/external" target="_blank">http://[link to the book]/122414/external</a>
		<div id="metadata">..<div id="content" data-contenttype="article" data-lastmodified="2015-nov-05 12:12:15" data-contentid="122414" data-itemid="20338" data-culturecode="nb-NO"  data-lastwritedate="2018-mar-21 11.55.39"  data-isedited="1">
			...[body of the article]
			<a href="100882.html">[name of article]</a>
			<a href="#">[name of not found article]</a>

Each rendered html file has the following information

  • Link to your book.
  • Type of the element
  • Last modified date
  • If an article has a link to an article B, and article B is found in the book. You will see the link as marked with yellow background in figure 4. If the article B is not found in the book, it will link with a hashtag, see red background in figure 4.
  • The most important information is inside the <div id="content">. Figure 5 describe information about the attributes inside content div element. If current element is a folder, it should contain a list of links to underlying elements, more detail in figure 6

Resources folder

The resource folder contains all documents/attachments which are in used in the book. 


If you do have collective agreements in your handbook, this will also be exported as from version 6.11.10.
You will get an extra folder called CollectiveAgreements, and a file called resource.xml

Figure 7: Example of the resource.xml file
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
	<element itemid="39">
    	<resource agreement="Agreement 1" name="..." type="CollectiveAgreement" value="419fa023-e822-4022-a3b4-bace3ba88340.html" guid="419fa023-e822-4022-a3b4-bace3ba88340" />
    	<resource agreement="Agreement 2" name="..." type="CollectiveAgreement" value="c5e8743f-7450-44e7-a9f1-524baa497c54.html" guid="c5e8743f-7450-44e7-a9f1-524baa497c54" />
	<element itemid="40">
    	<resource agreement="Agreement 2" name="..." type="CollectiveAgreement" value="c5e8743f-7450-44e7-a9f1-524baa497c54.html" guid="c5e8743f-7450-44e7-a9f1-524baa497c54" />

The element node (the article) has a list of resources. Each resource is in this case a specific agreement. The attributes for the resource is documented in figure 7.
