I haven’t been checking discussions here much during last 3 months due to busy work, but I noticed this thread and another one about moving Natron docs outside of current Git repository.
This my opinion below can be well ignored as nonsense, as I haven’t been contributing anything to Natron. …but, I think it would be better to have documentation in wiki type web platform where it could be easily edited directly using web browser.
I believe it would make easier to attract more contributors for documentation maintenance, as current method must feel quite difficult or troublesome for many of us. I setuped git and possibility to help with documentations long time ago, but if I would like to now add some information or create a new page I would need to “re-learn” what was the procedure to edit documentation rather than just login to website and write necessary information. I was informed that it would be possible also to make updates directly in GitHub site, but if I recall correctly it wasn’t easy to quickly preview the result.
I just wanted to share this opinion on this as many people can’t help with developing the complex software, but maybe could help with other aspects if those are made easy to jump in. I understand that for developers current method is very easy as they have all setuped and have the thinking which suits with it.
Still to add that of course I have no information how much documentation is used by Natron users, as I haven’t needed it myself because everything works mostly just like in Nuke.
(and I publicly admit that I did my last project compositing in Nuke rather than Natron, but in long term I would like to use Natron for work as well)
