Documentation extension "EXT:documentation"

  • In our TYPO3 fork, the documentation module has made good progress thanks to Xavier:
    • the list view crawls the locally available documentation and displays it

    • for the official documentation, we have a list of available manuals:
  • Goal is to submit for inclusion into TYPO3 6.2 within a couple of weeks

Extension manuals

  • integration with Solr
