Download Scalar

Scalar is a publishing platform made for people who are not so tech savvy. It is an open source software which allows customizability with added support for Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and Javascript. Connection to online repositories is seamless. In fact it is incentivized!

Adding a link in Scalar is equivalent to creating a relationship. It facilitates addition of connotations, comments, tags and paths. Different views act as templates on which the user can customize the look of the publication. Scalar is a tool not only in the hands of the author but also the reader. Readers can contribute by means of comments or annotations. The function of tagging make the user experience all the more enriching. Thus online repositories can be drawn and added to make the structure of Scalar a rather complex and labyrinthine one.

The biggest drawback of Scalar is that its image tagger is difficult to use and could be improved upon. Add to that the limited documentation. However the benefits outweigh the demerits. Though it is still in its beta stage, it redefines web publishing and transcends boundaries of books and chapters by virtue of its innovative approach. All this makes Scalar worth investing upon. It is a software which would surely impress with its features.
