I think a number of you have heard me go on about GitBuilding. A hardware documentation tool that is being developed by me, @kaspar, and @rbowman. We are getting close to our next release. Like all Open projects we have scratched a number of our own itches. For example you can now drag in a GLB model with an animation of parts in exploded views, and auto preview YouTube or PDF:
While I am very happy with some of these things. The project still has some major flaws which I am not correctly skilled to solve:
- It is pretty hard to install (especially on Windows) if you are not used to Python
- The look and feel of the documentation is a little ugly and clunky
If anyone with Python packaging skills, or web dev skills is looking for a something to do we would be really interested in talking to you.
It might be fun to do a GitBuilding tech demo, and QA/feedback session in an informal call? I know @ryanfobel has been playing with it, would be great to get feedback from more people.
