Welcome to Lucide

Lucide is a plugin based document viewer for eComStation. In its first incarnation it supports PDF, DjVu and JPEG files but new document types can easily be added to it.

Lucide itself is currently released as binary-only, the plugin sourcecode is available so developers can use this as a base for more plugins.

Bugs & Features

Lucide is not yet a finished product, some features are missing and some are not fully tested yet. If you encounter any bugs you are welcome to register it as a new ‚Äčticket. Please make sure you check the list of open tickets first to see if the bug was already registered once. Also try to assign it to the correct component, it is quite easy to do with TRAC.

Developers

While the core of Lucide is not released to the public the sourcecode for the plugins is freely available. This means third party programmers can contribute their own plugins for Lucide.

Plugin API

The plugin API is using SOM, this allows programmers to write their own plugin without the need of recompiling it every time a new Lucide release is done. It's up to the developer to decide if the plugin he/she writes will be open source or not, Lucide will work with both type of plugins.
