Hi to all,
I'm developing a multiplatform app with python and gtk. It must work fine in
linux and in window (maybe also OsX).
As every good app It must have an help (better a contextual help) showing
how to use it.
But at this point I'm not sure what to do. I can see more than one option:
1) Using text capabilities of gtk (TextView, TextBuffer) I can create a doc
browser that can
display help, images and also simulate hyperlink.
-easy to implement
-no other packages needed
-work on all gtk platform
-Doc must be stored plain text file (i.e. no html support)
-No real print capabilities
-Producing doc also requires some programming knoledge
2)I can create a pdf manual (have you any suggestion about tools I can use
for this task?)
-No programming knowledge
-Need external app
-Not sure how well AcrobatReader/evince/gpdf/(others?) can be manipulated
from a pygtk-app: should I write
specific code for every apps?
3)I can use an external widget like gtkhtml to create a simple browser for
html pages (open a real browser like firefox for
display a simple plain html page is a waste of resources IMHO)
-Doc in html
-Need external package (not sure if these widget are also available for
windows) and they must have also python bindings
4) Other ideas?
Which street should I follow?
