I've been hacking around for many, many moons these days, looking for the
simplest way to be able to "draw" topic maps. Well, my latest hack seems
pretty simple. Right now, a user can draw simple maps, then save them as
XTM documents. Soon, it will be able to import XTM documents.
A screenshot of it and a dump of its saved file can be viewed at
When it's a bit farther down the road, I'll put it up in the cvs at
http://nexist.sourceforge.net. At this time, I'm not even sure the XTM is
correct. What's missing:
representation of x,y location in the XTM document (likely to be some kind
of <variant> object
and/or layout engine that takes an imported map and decides where to
locate the nodes
In the end, I'd like to do something similar with Jazz (pan & zoom), but
that's far too complex a project for the time being.
I tend to think that whatever user interface an OHS will eventually have,
we will likely plenty of graphics horsepower.
