HyperText Markup Language (HTML)

LaTeX

A file format to provide high-quality typesetting information describing layout and font styling of textual data. Originally designed to flexibly support the complex layout (including multi-level superscript, subscript, matrixes & special glyphs) of scientific formulas.

LaTeX (also written LATEX) uses the TeX typesetting program for formatting its output, and LaTeX itself is written in the TeX macro language.

  • File extension: .tex
  • Helper (file viewer) application: see the Prerequisites section for the GenealogyTree addon.

"Lamport's TeX" is named after developer Leslie Lamport. With LaTeX, Lamport added a collection of macros to the original TEX program which was made by Donald Knuth.

Open Document Text

"Filename extensions .odt & .fodt for word processing (text) documents. Open Document Format for Office Applications (ODF), also known as OpenDocument, is a ZIP-compressed[6] XML-based file format for spreadsheets, charts, presentations and word processing documents. It was developed with the aim of providing an open, XML-based file format specification for office applications.[7]" - Wikipedia

PDF document

"Portable Document Format (PDF) (redundantly: PDF format) is a file format developed by Adobe in the 1990s to present documents, including text formatting and images, in a manner independent of application software, hardware, and operating systems.[2][3] Based on the PostScript language, each PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a fixed-layout flat document, including the text, fonts, vector graphics, raster images and other information needed to display it." - Wikipedia

PostScript

PostScript (PS) is a page description language in the electronic publishing and desktop publishing business. It is a dynamically typed, concatenative programming language and was created at Adobe Systems.

RTF document

"The Rich Text Format (often abbreviated RTF) is a proprietary[6][7][8] document file format with published specification developed by Microsoft Corporation from 1987 until 2008 for cross-platform document interchange with Microsoft products." - Wikipedia

CSV

A comma-separated values (CSV) file is a delimited text file that uses a comma to separate values. A CSV file stores tabular data (numbers and text) in plain text.

XML

Extensible Markup Language

vCard

vCard, also known as VCF (Virtual Contact File), is a file format standard for electronic business cards.

Graphviz

Graphviz (Graph Visualization) suite of open source software (Download page)

DOT is the graph description language of the suite GraphViz. It has a human-readable syntax that describes network data, including subgraphs and elements appearances (i.e. color, width, label).

DOT graphs can also be imported into NetworkX, Tulip or ZGRViewer.

Files are typically indicated with the .gv or .dot filename extensions. The extension .gv is preferred. (This avoids confusion with the extension .dot also used for Microsoft Word template files prior to 2007.) However, the DOT language can be converted to several object-oriented graphics formats.

SVG

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an Extensible Markup Language (XML)-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation.

D3
