I am a member of DANTE e.V. - the German language TeX users group.

During my spare time I am running a small company that uses LuaTeX in its main product (www.speedata.de, http://speedata.github.io/publisher/ - the source code).

comment How to prolong compilation time while engaging in leisure activities?
@ThorbjørnRavnAndersen It was just a joke. Java is know to be the slowest possible language. (Which again is just a lie).

The example part is the most visible lacking part of the publisher. There are two sample files here: speedata.github.io/publisher/manual/examples-en/index.html (any volunteers? please!)

@JosephWright I have an invisible grid in the background with height of the grid cells of \baselineskip of the text font. Every object is placed in the grid (and thus integer multiple of \baselineskip from the top). There is still much to do but I will for example include an invisible "adjust to grid" marker that goes to the next cell. This part is currently under development.

I wish I could get feedback for the downvote! Too much advertisement? (Hey, it's open source, so you can use it). Not a good answer? (I think it matches the question.) It would be nice if the downvoter could explain why this answer is a bad answer.

@JosephWright hard to discuss this in a comment... I believe your question is along the lines: "can we take the approach and throw it at LaTeX"? I'd say no, since I almost completely leave the TeX world. For example I save the text blocks and reformat them on demand (for example if columns are of different widths or of I need a parshape in the second column).

comment Electronic version of Knuth's “TeXbook”?
Thanks (+1)! I really should use these resources more often. But I always have the feeling that I miss "the finest detail in the behavior of TeX" when not reading the original TeXbook. Next time I'll look into these.
