API documentation


ScroogeXHTML for the Java platform is a library which can convert a subset of the Rich Text Format (RTF) standard to HTML5 and XHTML, as a standalone document, or as a fragment which can be used in other documents. It supports RTF features such as hyperlinks, field results, simple tables, picture data extraction, and embeds PNG and JPG pictures as data URI. It is easy to use, and requires no external runtime libraries except the SLF4J logging facade.

Other platforms

ScroogeXHTML is also available for Delphi 2009+ and Free Pascal.
