Moving from HAT tools like MadCap Flare and Robohelp

Is Paligo different from HAT tools?

Yes, definitely. Paligo is a full XML-based Component Content Management System. There are other tools that do single-sourcing and content reuse, like so called “HAT tools” (Help Authoring Tools). So what separates Paligo from those?

If you have previously used a HAT tool (e.g Robohelp or MadCap Flare) you will discover Paligo has significant advantages over such tools. HAT tools do not use real structured authoring, but HTML as the source format. The value of true XML-based structured authoring cannot be overstated for creating future-proof documentation with consistent content in a technical writing team.

There are many more differences, such as that HAT tools are also primarily editors, without content management built in. If you want to know more, check out this article.

How does it compare to e.g DITA?

Paligo is based on one of the most robust open XML standards available, DocBook, but we’ve adapted it to support topic-based authoring, making it very similar to DITA but with additional features.

The trouble with DITA and other previous XML environments (for instance Framemaker or Arbortext combined with the DITA Open Toolkit, with or without a CCMS) has been that they have been so complex.

Paligo changes this, by taking the complexity out of structured authoring, offering a full content management system that is as user-friendly as it gets!

DITA file

Paligo combines the best of both worlds, with built-in XML-based structured authoring,
content management, workflow, advanced reuse features, translation management, versioning, and more
– all in a user-friendly coherent platform in the cloud.

But don’t take our word for it, see what our customers are saying…

Paligo is my idea of what the next generation technical documentation software should look like.

It combines most of my favorite features from FrameMaker, MadCap Flare, and Confluence with integrated CMS, versioning, and workflow management.
Support has been excellent, by the way.
