Is it possible import DITA into Confluence or export Confluence content to DITA?

Or another tools can do that?

There is a DITA to Wiki project on sourceforge http://sourceforge.net/projects/dita2wiki/ might as well can help you with.

You might want to explain what DITA is (I do know myself, but it's fourth on the list when I google, after eyewear, hockey and a burlesque act)

For the Confluence -> DITA flow, it depends on what DITA can import - Confluence can export to xml and some other generic or standard formats.

For <something> to Confluence, https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.uwc is the usual starting point if that <something> can't export Confluence formatted data.

# Workaround

 

For unknown reasons, the dita2wiki utility doesn't import the DITA stuff into Confluence.

  1. Therefore, I use the following workaround.
  2. Generate a PDF and a single page XHTML through XMLMind ditac.
  3. Import the XHTML code through Bob Swift's HTML import macro.
  4. Adjust the layout of the resulting import through HTML tags. Usually, I add <br> tags.
  5. Attach the PDF to the wiki document.

PROS
You have both an HTML and printable PDF with the same content.

CONS
The words in the HTML and PDF output doesn't appear in a search. To workaround this issue, I paste the TOC outside the macro field.

Maybe this workaround is too much of a workaround. What do you think?

Do you have other ways to move DITA content into Confluence?
