Actually OK as is for foreseeable future. Supposed to just be a top level exposition and marshalling of documents linked rather than a presentation vehicle for actual documents. Needs some cleanup and completions, but that will be it. Root (talk) 06:39, 10 February 2024 (UTC)


scrap entry to collect some thoughts on going forward with this. First the § title refers to

Which has a 2d gallery instead of the 3d bookshelf metaphor but is complete and has book viewing and other stuff of interest.

Some basics that are missing are search and an unsatisfactory display of open books, maybe wanna gut that out completely but at least need to properly display two pages the way its currently working most places and replace the clumsy arrows with click on the left or right page to move forward or backward.

After that but with the ops in mind when doing the pagination, allow pdf or latex2html display.

Think about zooming in and changing the open book metaphor to be modal and/or take up most of the canvas.

Also wanna consolidate typography adapted from the IBM and Burroughs docs for unified L&F.

There are also issues with the current code. No reason to believe there's anything better than above so may as well proceed with current and need to address the way content is added. Everything is shallow and most are 2d or like the above pushing infra that collides with my project. Root (talk) 21:44, 6 February 2024 (UTC)


below undated but see history; Flash replaced with this, which at this point lacks a document mapping such as is evident in the Flash. Not a priority to update the stale docs here. Root (talk) 22:12, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
