[8.0]How to create a documentation website like Odoo Doc

on 5/7/16, 6:09 AM 786 views

Hello all,

I would like to create a little website with Odoo containing some tutorials.

I'm totally newbie with Odoo and i've some difficulties to create the body of the website.

Let me show you what i would like to do; something like :


With : 

- A fixed left menu with anchors on the page

 - A central body (cut in 2 for code) to post comments and printscreen.

I've search on the web the way to construct this body without success...

Can anybody help me to create this kind of body or give me a link for tutorials.

Thx in advance

Maybe you just learn what the website builder offers out of the box before you start developing your own code. The "Slides" module for example offers many features for providing slides, videos and so on.

Thx for your answer , forgot to tell you that i was on Windows installation. 

@Ermin  : i don't want use slides

But maybe my question wasn't enough explicit.

What i would like to do is this kind of website : https://www.odoo.com/documentation/9.0/index.html

This part is ok, i can re-create it without any problem. It's just tiles containing image with a link to another page.

But when i enter in this page, for example the first one "Theme Tutorial" or Buildind a website" ... it's the structure of the body that i can't recreate.



Both of these pages have the same body as : 

- a left menu with anchors

- center : contraining text, code, print, ....

And that's what i would like to have on my own website.

i don't talk about the contains of the site, but the look of it.

Then you have 2 possibilities: you can build it from scratch using the features Qweb and the website builder offer (see the content of the tutorial) or you can do it the way Odoo does is it (using Sphinx and Github) and then you can study the source code, which you can find here: https://github.com/odoo/odoo/tree/8.0/doc

Sphinx is the way if you want to pretty much automate your docs. :)

The link you have mentioned explains how to build a custom website. Please read it carefully and if you still have specific questions, come back and ask specific questions.

All the documents are based on Github, so it is easy to find the \source here which means if you like, you can copy and modify that into what you like.
