Is it a good idea to create a big Rust documentation site?

#1

While we have curated lists for everything in Rust I thought that if it was great to have documentation of various things of the language organized in another fashion, rather than the lists (obviously not detracting them).

Also I was thinking the idea of having the option of converting documentation to PDF form and adding Rust documentation in other languages :world_map: .

Relevant prior art? https://doc.rust-lang.org/ and https://docs.rs

I think you’re describing something like an Are We Web Yet? curated list of interesting docs in the Rust ecosystem. I especially like the goal of including static downloads and encouraging better language support.

this would be kind of nice for e-readers, epub export option would be nice tooo

Potentially worth noting - mdbook (the standard tool for Rust prose documentation) has an experimental epub exporter: https://crates.io/crates/mdbook-epub

Pressing “Print” and choosing “Print to PDF” worked like a charm on my Samsung tablet. I’m assuming it works on Windows and Linux, too.
