Use google document to create the Plone Documentation


Today I was writing a little documentation about Plone 2.5 in reaction to a first draft on workflow management by groups. My goal is not to write a document alone that will replace this draft but to imply its author. A this point a tool was missing until I remember we can use Google Docs application to share our ideas and write this document together.

We have shortly try out Google Docs and our first impressions are positive: each other can write in the same document and modification are reported in live on the other screen. Add a GTalk window or an IRC session to discuss and you have a very powerful tool.

The next step is to finish this document and to copy/paste it in Plone Documentation. I hope to do this tomorrow night.

Hey Limi, when will we embed this in Plone ;^)

  1. The answer is that we’ll handle it with the new proxy widgets that follow from the UI redesign that I’m working on.

    Now you gave me a bad conscience about not getting it published yet. Damn. Gotta try to find some time on Sunday to get it out there — it’s as usual 95% written, only need to produce some screencasts to illustrate.🙂

  2. encolpe dit :

    The two next articles are writen in Google Docs, inline and offline, with the collabaration of Katie Cunningham.
    It is a first try then they may have some styles problems.
