Debian Package of the Day » Blog Archive » OTS: Command line text auto-summary
As a library, libots can also be used by other programs. There is a list on the project home page of three applications that provide summarising through OTS:
- There was a plug-in in the development version of AbiWord
at the time the OTS site was written. That “development
version” is fairly ancient and it is a fully integrated part of
the version available in current Debian or Ubuntu systems. Abiword
itself is a great lightweight alternative to OpenOffice Writer.
It’s also the default word processor for Xubuntu, and part of the
xubuntu-desktop package. If you’re not running Xubuntu, you can
install it with the package name
abiword. (There are also development and plug-in packages for Abiword.)
- The second application to use OTS is Gnome-Summarizer, a GUI by the
author himself. It appears from the screenshot to display the output
HTML file and keywords. Even more exciting-looking than this is the
“Researcher’s Tool” demonstrated in the screencast of the next version.
- The third program listed is a gedit plug-in by Daniel Brodie.
