Replace OCG in collection extension with Electron
Open, HighPublic

Description

This captures the subtasks for keeping the Collection extension functioning without OCG

Essentially, the book creator should function as it currently does, except:

  • the pdf rendered is not in LaTeX format
  • plain text output is no longer supported

This also does away with the features:

  • Paper size selector
  • table of contents creation
  • adding custom chapters
  • plain text rendering
  • selecting number of columns (these are discussed on phabricator here)
  • attribution of images used in the article
  • enumeration of all editors that contributed to the individual wiki pages

Has anyone considered creating a separate (restbase) endpoint for pdf renderings, that the service can use, which would allow us to retain certain of these features ?

@TheDJ I believe these are captured in the subtasks. Once we have the complete functionality that we want to retain, the endpoint will be created and made public.
