Thanks Don, thats really valuable work.

It would be heaps more useful if it could be turned into chm help format and we could point our "main" Lazarus IDE to a local copy. Or, perhaps, harder, somewhere where in the IDE that remembers your URL. 

Either way, having people looking at it directly, from the Lazarus IDE would be a good thing for for users and perhaps for the quality control of your project.

Hello Davo.

Thanks for the kind words. I wanted to make the content available so people could use it or offer suggestions. I do not put downloads on the site because its not an official documentation source. Its just a way to see updates that cannot be included in the fixes branch because they are deferred to the next major release.

If you're using 2.3.X, you can build both documentation formats locally. See:

docs/html/README.txt
docs/html/build_chm.sh
docs/html/build_chm.bat
docs/html/build_html.sh
docs/html/build_html.bat

Hope that helps.

Is it possible to have a link in the footer (or header) to come back to the mainpage (https://dsiders.gitlab.io/lazdocsnext/ here) to change the doc area (eg. LCL to RTL) ?
