The Asciidoctor.js Live Preview extension allows custom AsciiDoc attributes to be set using file query strings. In this post, I show you how to do so, along with how to use it in tandem with the extension&rsquo;s configuration UI.
In this post, I step through how to set custom AsciiDoc attributes in the Asciidoctor.js Live Preview Extension for Firefox (and Chromium/Chrome). By doing so, you can preview your content properly and avoid setting attributes directly in your AsciiDoc content and other hacks.
AsciiDoc can include code from remote sources, not just local files. In this post, I&rsquo;m going to show you both how to do it, as well as how doing so can make your content extremely flexible and much less intensive to maintain.
Writing technical documentation has a lot of similarities to writing software; an important one being content reuse, instead of content duplication. In this post, you’ll learn why and how to use attributes in AsciiDoc and Antora to reuse content as and when needed.
Whenever you create online documentation, eventually, the structure needs to change; such as a name change, content restructure, or old content is removed. When these times come, it&rsquo;s important to create redirects to avoid breaking user expectations. In this post, I&rsquo;m going to step you through how to do so with Antora.
If you need to convert Markdown content to AsciiDoc, there&rsquo;s a tool specifically designed for the job — it&rsquo;s called Kramdoc. In this post, I&rsquo;m going to show you how to use it and relate my experience with it.
Markdown is one of the most ubiquitous file formats around at the moment for writing technical documentation — and it&rsquo;s easy to see why! However, it may not be the choice long-term. When it&rsquo;s time to change, you need to be able to migrate to a more feature-rich format. Come learn about the best tool for the job and how to use it.
If you need to create and maintain technical writing, there are a large number of solutions that will give you a lot of what you want. However, which one is the best? Today, I&rsquo;ll show you which one I believe is the best choice.
While I use ReStructuredText, and its companion platform Sphinx-Doc a lot, that doesn&rsquo;t mean that I believe they&rsquo;re the best combination for technical writing and documentation.
