------------------------------------- What is the Fonto authoring platform? -------------------------------------

Fonto is the leading structured content authoring platform for companies all over the world. We empower thousands of subject matter experts (a.k.a. authors) around the world to create structured (XML) content.

Our flagship product is an online text editor, like Google Docs, but specifically for XML documents, that we validate in real time against all sorts of XML schemas. To give you some context, all sorts of companies like Toyota, BBC, Pearson, VMware, Cathay Pacific, Roche, ISO and various governments use Fonto to easily structure, reuse, reconfigure and adapt their content to individual needs.

The Fonto XML Editor is fully developed in JavaScript. It consists of three parts; the user interface, the intermediate layer, both written in JavaScript and React and the core, which is built from different components written in Vanilla JavaScript or TypeScript. The editor core contains a number of open source components, like the schema validation engine ( ( )), a DOM implementation ( ( )) and an XPath/XQuery engine ( ( )). In addition to the text editor, we also have a number of extensions/apps available. These are generally back-end services implemented in .NET Core to which we connect via XHRs.

We automate everything we can, using modern technologies like Travis, Bitbucket pipelines, Kubernetes clusters and the Azure cloud.

We are working with a kanban software development model which allows us to make a new release every quarter.
