We’re pleased to announce that you can now access the easyDITA User Guide on-line at documentation.easydita.com. We authored the User Guide entirely in easyDITA. Using our soon to be released integration with MindTouch TCS – a social Help system – we published our DITA map to MindTouch. The structure of the DITA map was used to determine the MindTouch hierarchy. All the cross reference links were resolved to hyperlinks in MindTouch, and the media were inserted at appropriate places. We even used the MindTouch User Guide template to style the table of contents you see on the top level page.

The best part is when you leave us a comment on the User Guide in MindTouch, that comment is viewable in the easyDITA Content Manager and Editor, so we get your feedback right where it matters – at the author’s fingertips.
