Eclipse offers plugin developers the ability to add help documentation for their plugins locally or online. Opening that help will give you a nice window with searchable help, something like this:
Platform 4 is finally there. We prepared a few articles so you can discover what’s in the best version we ever released. Today’s one is about Files and Documents Management, one of oldest and core features of our platform.
Of course, as part of the great effort made on eXo Platform 4 in its overall Design, the Files application benefits from this global renewal.
But not only does it take the new Design, it also comes with a simplified view so you can focus on your work and your files. All the complex features are hidden for standard users so they’re not lost in the complexity of Files Management.
Platform 4 is here, offering revamped designs and an enhanced user experience. We believe this is the first product we’e launched that has this level of fit and finish. We even think it is among the most beautiful enterprise software ever launched. Let’s discover together what’s in the best version we have ever released from a design and user experience standpoint.
Platform 4 is here. Let’s discover together what’s included in the best version we have ever released.
A general theme for Platform 4 is the User Experience. The wiki application UX received a lot of small enhancements such as a new, eye-pleasing look; control over what gets published on the activity stream; and the ability to collapse the left panel in order to reclaim real estate. But along with these small tweaks, several more important changes will dramatically enhance your experience when using the wiki. Let’s review them.
The DOC and Product teams are very proud to announce that the new documentation for eXo Platform 4.0 is out!
The intuitive and modern user interface of Platform 4.0 required us to improve our documentation website to fit with this new brand. But not only! We have also been working hard on the quality of the text and the accuracy of the explanations.
When people ask me if I’m satisfied about what I’ve done, my answer is usually: “There’s still room to improve this and that, I don’t like this, I want to do this next, this could be better, and so on.”
I’m the “never satisfied” type of guy. Thus, working for eXo Platform fits me well, because as soon as we release a new version, we’re already working on the next one and thinking about new challenges (stay hungry, stay foolish, we could say).
That said, I can also appreciate great accomplishments. And today, I want to talk about one in particular: the overall design of eXo Platform 4. That may sound partisan coming from an eXo employee, but keep in mind I wasn’t involved in the design process—we have a Brand & Design team for that. So the first time I saw Photoshop mockups of what would become Platform 4, I was very excited but I also wondered how this would be rendered in dynamic applications.
Platform 4 is here. While the beta phase is in full swing and developers are squashing the latest bugs, let’s discover together what’s included in the best version we’ve ever released.
One of the key elements of Platform 4 is its homepage, which summarizes the visual identity of the product. We have improved readability and balance, so that important things are immediately brought to your attention.
