Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-906) Please offer offline downloadable documentation
Date Mon, 26 Aug 2013 17:11:52 GMT


Noah Slater commented on COUCHDB-906:

Alexander, take a look at this:;a=blob_plain;f=share/doc/templates/utilities.html;hb=HEAD

Notice the "{% if local %}" block? I added that so that you can switch the display of the
sidebar links depending on whether the docs are being served out of CouchDB, or whether they
are in RTD.

So what you could do is either modify this, or help.html, and link to a PDF version of the
docs. Change the link depending on whether 'local' is true or not.

We put a copy of the PDF on the filesystem, so you should be able to link to that from within
the locally hosted docs. If if 'local' is false, link to the RTD download.

Do you think that's a decent approach?
