Coko’s Open Source Publishing Tools, Flax and Paged.js, Power the Creation of the Louvre’s Newest Catalogue Raisonné
From a Coko Announcement:
Coko, known for its commitment to open source software in publishing, proudly announces that its innovative publishing tools, Flax and Paged.js, have been used in the creation of the Musée du Louvre’s latest publication, “Antoon Van Dyck: Catalogue Raisonné des Tableaux du Musée du Louvre.” The catalogue is available to view at https://livres.louvre.fr/
This represents a significant achievement for Coko, demonstrating the adaptability and power of open source tools in producing high-quality, beautiful books. The use of Flax and Paged.js by such a prestigious institution as the Louvre Museum is a testament to Coko‘s ongoing commitment to providing best-in-class, 100% open source tools for publishers of all kinds.
Flax, a new product from Coko, is a publishing front end that has been in development for a significant period. The goal of Flax has always been to provide an avenue for a wide range of publishers, including those in the scholarly, museum, and Open Education Resource (OER) sectors, to have a web presence for their content. The Van Dyck catalogue is a tangible demonstration of this vision realized. Flax’s capabilities extend to journals and preprints as well, and Coko is excited to demonstrate these features in the near future.
“We are thrilled to see our software play such a key role in the creation of this important work,” said Adam Hyde, Coko Founder. “Our mission has always been to revolutionize the publishing sector through the use of open source tools. Seeing Flax and Paged.js used by the Louvre Museum is not only an endorsement of our products but of the entire open source community.”
