The list of Inform 7 documentation (as of 19 Dec 2011)


#41

As much as I want to like Inform 7, everything just seems out of sync and the worst is we don’t know which parts are working and which parts are not.

When a new version comes out, it seems crucial that everything be ready at the same time. I understand that different parts are maintained by different people who do it as a hobby, but it does give a hard time to people who want to jump on the wagon.


#42

We did overhaul the built-in extension with the new release; if there are some straggling bits that we didn’t catch, those should be reported via the bug tracker, but these are accidental omissions, not an intentional lag.


#43

Hi Emily. Would the bug tracker be the GitHub repo one or another one?


#44

That would be the mantis site: inform7.com/mantis/my_view_page.php . There’s a category for documentation issues.


#45

I wanted to look up

“Writing with Inform”

and

“The Recipe Book”

but both links here on this page inform7.com/learn/manuals/ are down. Can someone please fix this? And maybe provide a link that works?


#46

Links are still broken as of April 9, 2015. Help!

It’s a shame the online versions are down, but you can use the downloadable versions, can’t you?


#48

Absolutely. I was able to download the text version which seems complete and up-to-date. Just a lot tougher without an html index.


#49

The manuals should now be properly online at the Inform site.


#50

That’s fantastic! Thank you for the fix!


#51

(Graham is the one who actually needed to do this; I am but a messenger. :slight_smile:


#52

Well, then, my thanks to Graham for the fix.

BTW, version 2.0 of the Inform 7 Handbook (rewritten for compatibility with 6L38) has been up for a few weeks at http://www.musicwords.net/if/i7hb.htm.


#54

BTW, much thanks for updating this.


(Björn Paulsen) #55

Strange, the link to Oliver Reiser’s Inform cheat-sheet is dead. I seem to remember it being still relevant; does anyone know where it can be found?


#56

It is still available from the IF Archive

Excellent. Thank you.
