Dokuwiki to Github Markup translation
OpenCPN needs a way to translate the manual from Dokuwiki to simple markup as used by github.
We would like to take a portion of the dokuwiki manual and copy it to github wiki so that that Basic Manual can be used as documentation for all OS Distributions.
Is there an easy way to accomplish this?
Please think long and hard before doing this. I used to run a system behind an airgap and had to copy documentation pages over. They fitted into DW with only a few hiccups. If you move them to GitHub they will become inaccessible for systems not on the Internet unless the SM installs a local git. It's bad enough that there is no simple documentation download, this would make matters far worse. Just IMHO of course.
You could use the book creator and PDF plugins to make and export a manual as a PDF file and then just link to the PDF for people to read (of course you could also just link to the wiki).
Github uses Markdown. pandoc (
) should be able to convert (at least simple) DokuWiki syntax to Markdown.
Thank you all. Your experience and thoughts are very helpful and will factor into our ultimate direction.
