You have an abundance of help content online evolving with healthy collaborative contributions in a way that can only occur on a wiki. How do you package this content in the Eclipse Help System? You can have your wiki cake and eat it too when you discover how the Mylyn project has created a repeatable process for converting wiki content into Eclipse Help. After attending this session you will be well-equipped to adopt such a process for your plug-in, so that you can continue to enjoy the benefits of wiki-based content while providing the same help content offline from within Eclipse.
This session will provide an overview of the process of converting Eclipsepedia content to Eclipse Help using WikiText, and then dive into the technical detail of how it works on a real project. Attendees will get an in-depth view of the Ant script that drives the process and a good understanding of how the components fit together. Pitfalls and guidelines in authoring good Eclipsepedia content will be covered, as well as safeguards to detect and prevent problem content.
This session is part of the curated collection of short talks titled
