Hi all i am still fascinated with the idea of converting panda3d manual to RST format.
reStructuredText (RST) format is the default format for documenting python modules. I also happen to think is a pretty good WIKI like format that is both readable in text and renderd to HTML (or PDF) form. docutils.sourceforge.net/rst.html
This is a sample of how it looks on fairly big doc docs.python.org/_sources/referen … _stmts.txt
I have created a git repo to convert the manual to RST format. The git repo is setup to allow any one to commit so fleel free to help. Please follow the python style guide python.org/dev/peps/pep-0012/ .
My goal is to convert the entire manual into RST format and throwing away some unneeded parts.
I feel that the manual has been turning into more of a “wiki” and some of the wiki parts can be wikified.
I also hope to produce a printable version of the manual.
Big hurdle is how to document c++ and python ways of doing things. I think i like the old way of using python for every thing and trusting C++ folks could figure it out for them selfs, only outlining major differences. But i am still out on this.
PS this has been discussed before:
