Just want to update y'all that my better docs continue to improve with each passing week.

I just did a style facelift on the members section:


(and yes, that's mostly css style! I did a minor change to the html, you can see the old here: http://dpldocs.info/experimental-docs/std.stdio.html (well, at least until I rebuild the docs of all of Phobos again), but the css is the big thing. It is nice having semantic markup.)

So I hope that is more readable. The sidebar is also new over the last couple weeks, giving a sorted list of sibling names - including package listings.

If you go into a thing: http://dpldocs.info/experimental-docs/std.stdio.write.html you can see how the sidebar shows the immediate siblings only, which makes the list a lot more managable than trying to cram everything everywhere. I find the Phobos official sidebar to be useless because there's just too much there.

BTW the recent push that makes constraints small and grey, check this out for example:


I feel is no help. The readability is still poor and it doesn't help with navigation. In my new members thing, I used a small, hoverable prototype... but just on the index. Once you click through, I still have the full details, formatted for legibility.

This reform is not appeasing my revolution....

Anyway, I feel that this is really starting to come together now... pretty soon, I'll promote it to "alpha" from its current state of "pre-alpha". Just gotta write the new search engine first!
