Projects / QuHelp


QuHelp is a command-line program that scans a directory with HTML formatted text files and builds a help site using that directory's content and a template. A default template is included, but any template can be specified. QuHelp adds a nice expandable tree view of the help site's contents, a navigator, permalinks, and other useful stuff for browsing the help site.

    Release Notes: The template code was improved for better Firefox 4 support and a more consistent look across browsers. UTF-8 encoding is now explicitly specified in the headers. A crashing bug with the template overriding code was fixed. A genchildlist directive was added, which can be used to generate a list with a folder's children to the folder's content. An import directive was added, which can be used to import other QuHelp help sites. The -S option was added for creating a solid version of the help site (the whole site in a single HTML page) in addition to the normal site.

      Release Notes: The template JavaScript code uses postMessage and onmessage where available, fixing cross-frame communications in Chrome with local files. A system-wide template directory was added. Conditions for including or not including pages were added. The default template was tweaked a bit.

        Release Notes: This release adds a Search tab to the sidebar. The quhelp programs build an external HTML file containing all words from the pages and the page(s) on which each word is found. The external HTML file is loaded dynamically once and only if needed. More calls have been added to free. The '-c' option was ignored, and now it is parsed properly. The source code has been commented.
