Description (last modified by DarTar) (diff)

IMHO, chm is one of the best thing Microsoft has created. Because it uses HTML format, it has good search functionnality incorporated, it has table of content and index: it is for me the best format for documentation. For writing content of documentation, wiki is the best choice as many users can modify the content at the same time: one may write the article, another checks spelling, ... To make WikkaWiki the best choice for generating a chm doc, I would implement these functionnalities, maybe some of them as a plugin :

  • generating <link> headers for rel="home", rel="up", rel="previous" and rel="next". (feasible with just one action)
  • using relative URL in href (suppressing the  http://site.com/ part) (demanded elsewhere also, like making the same Wikka install accessible for both intranet and internet, with 2 different URLs)
  • exporting all pages in HTML format (feasible with just one handler)
  • generating .hhk, .hhp and .idx files. These are used for the index

and table of contents. (yes another handler)
