Since I first started experimenting with Elixir I see myself digging slowly to discover more about how powerful Erlang is…Besides that, @josevalim went on Twitter the other day to talk about how dependencies are your responsibility and this got me wondering how much more from OTP I could be utilizing in my code without resorting to “external” dependencies (which I’m making a distinction here).
So I’ve been browsing Erlang Docs now and then and I have to say: from my perspective, the way things are documented in the Elixir realm has spoiled me too much …
I don’t know if it’s just me that cares about that, but Erlang’s documentation does not strike me as the most effective nor user-friendly of all. I also don’t know if part of this is because I haven’t got the opportunity to actually study more about Erlang itself, so everything looks extra-weird in my eyes (somewhat hard to read).
So, I was wondering if there’s some kind of initiative to “modernize” Erlang’s documentation. Or someplace else that presents things in a more friendly manner.
