Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Autodesk Web Help


Thank you for the link, honyk. The UI is really cool. I submitted a proposal to implement a Web Help system for DocBook as my Google Summer of Code project and this helps me a lot when it comes to designing the Web Interface. As well as this is useful in getting to know the absolute features required. But, little sad as source seems to be not available! :)

Hello Everyone,

after some time of work in Autodesk Inventor I am very impressed by its help
system. The program itself is a Windows application and the help is provided
in compiled HTML format. Now I've found this help is available also online.
Here is a typical page: http://bit.ly/b443FK

There is a navigation with well known buttons
Contents/Index/Search/Favorities, but interesting is also the document
window. There are small forward, back and top links with the appropriate
tooltips as well as Show in content, Add to Favorities and Home links. In
the header there is also clickable full logic path to the given page.

Another feature I like is a tab approach. Division differs from page to
page, here the content is divided into Concept/Procedure/Quick Reference

I think all this is generated using some sophisticated tool, but I can
imagine to get the same output from my DocBook document.

Isn't it a nice challenge?


PS: I have nothing to do with Autodesk...
