Hi!

Sorry for the beginner question....

After watching the screencast about xdoc at vimeo and reading the blog of Sebastian Zarnekow we decided to use xdoc for our documentation.

I found the project at github and found the following recommendation:

If you want to import Xdoc to your Eclipse workspace I recommend you follow the workspace setup guide at the Xtext homepage.

I followed the link and do not understand why there is an explanation how to use xtext in my workspace because I have already xtext in eclipse 3.7, I need xdoc. Honestly speeking, I do not understand the explanation for xtext because I am not very familiar with eclipse and its plugin-concept.

Could you please give me a hint how to get started with xdoc? Thanks!

Annette

Hello Annette,

since Xtext 2.0 is now released i think it is not necessary to checkout the Xtext sources.
the hint in the docs comes from a time where Xtext 2.0 wasn't released yet

so the following should work

(1) check out Xdoc source code (e.g. using egit)
(2) start a new runtime app
(3) create a project (e.g. new eclipse help project) via wizard
(4) have fun

thus, xdoc is not part of xtext plugins?

cheers

Hi,

why else should it be hosted at github?
