digitalmars.D - New DocWiki: D documentation

reply Markus Dangl <danglm in.tum.de> writes:
Hi,

I hope you still remember me, I had the idea of writing a new 
documentation for D users. I'm now finished with the most basic 
programming and testing of the doc wiki and I can now consider it being 
beta (i.e. stable enough to release it to the D newsgroup *g*)

Check it out at: http://www.quit-clan.de/docwiki/

There is already a bit of stuff there, but be sure to double-check any 
information from the wiki atm, because it may still be wrong.
I hereby invite everybody to correct the documentation and add new 
things to it!

The current wiki features include export to XML, HTML, CHM, XSL:FO, PDS, 
PS - if you're missing something, just tell me, I'll be sure to look 
into it (if I'm able to write an exporter).

Great!
One thing I'm unsure about is the final goal of your documentation.
Is it supposed to be a reference manual of Phobos and Mango?

At least Phobos, but I want to have some major libraries in there too. Like, e.g. mango and other "big" things for D. If you want to add one, just do it :) The "Language Reference" should cover all the basics of D and i want to write some tutorials too. Then we'll start the translations :) I hope bandwith will not be an issue too soon...

Are you going to make the software downloadable as well ?

Yep works for me too :). I meant are you going to make the PHP that generates this documentation available ( the PHP for the site ) ? Charlie "Bastiaan Veelo" <Bastiaan.N.Veelo ntnu.no> wrote in message news:culqjm$2hou$1 digitaldaemon.com...

Yes, i'll release it under GPL, but ATM the source is not so beautiful and i don't wanna release such a "mess". I plan to rewrite a few functions and restructure the code a bit, because all the main wiki functions are in one 16kb file... If you want to i can send you the source code per email or upload it somewhere, just send an email to me. There is no manual for it and the sourcecode isn't commented very well.

That's looking very nice, it puts any designs I've done to shame :P I didn't realize you could set an form input to be centered (well, I should have, since you can change anything with CSS, I just never thought to do so)...I kinda like that. Keep up the good work...I'd also like to see the source code for this, since I've done a bit of work with PHP myself and enjoy poking around with other programs...maybe replace the wiki on my webpage with this :). -- -PIB -- "C++ also supports the notion of *friends*: cooperative classes that are permitted to see each other's private parts." - Grady Booch
