About this book

Technology behind

To write documentation I had to look for a tool with the following specifications:

  • easily write documentation
  • from within my development editor
  • static website output
  • clean layout and responsive design
  • CI integration possible

So before writing something myself I had a look around and at first used GitBook. That was fine and working but I got into trouble with CI because of code bugs in latest versions so I did look again for a better tool and switched to mkdocs. Both of them are very similar in form of writing in markdown and generating static pages.

The book you see now is based on mkdocs, a python static site generator with some extension plugins and an optimized theme.

Failures / correction

Nobody is perfect and everywhere may be spelling errors, wrong assumptions, missing information,bugs or misleading information. If you find such things and want to help me optimize this please send your changes or inform me to become a collaborator.
