Documents created with RagTime can combine within a single file multilingual word processing, spreadsheets, graphics, databases, and programmable objects.
RagTime is also extensible via plugins. For example, geo-referenced map rendering is supported using a plugin developed by a third party that reads and transforms DXF and shape files and articulates them to data in a spreadsheet.
In 1984, RagTime was initially developed by German software company B und E Software GmbH for Apple Macintosh computers. Subsequent versions for Windows-operated machines were released beginning in 1998.
While successful in Europe from its inception, the program is less widely used in the United States and the Americas. Potential barriers to acceptance for RagTime might include its unusual genre, perceived as a spreadsheet/desktop publishing hybrid, or the daunting feature set and its correspondingly demanding learning curve.
