That Django Book is Okay, Yeah?
Friends, I think we all need to take note of the Django Book. Their framework’s definitive manual is set to be free and redistributable, with interleaved comments throughout, a feat which illustrates Django’s very strengths right there. Right there!
The URL (
http://www.djangobook.com/en/beta/) indicates that they are equipped to handle translations and versioning. This isn’t innovative publishing. This is innovative literature. How did we let our free docs dwindle so? We care, right?
aemadrid points out that the comment system comes from Jack Slocum’s YAHOO.ext comments for Wordpress. The Django comments “Help” tab attributes this, as well. I thought this kind of annotation was peculiar to The Django Book, but it appears like this can be plugged into anything at all.
