I imagine this might well have been discussed and / or considered, but as I find it a particular barrier to ease-of-learning with Julia (and am totally willing to contribute to change ) I wanted to ask this obviously amazing community: has anyone thought of putting an in-page navigation menu into the documentation?
As quite an experienced programmer, I tend to work on problems and enjoy exploring the full standard library documentation over time.
To give a concrete impression of what I’m struggling with: if I go to the arrays page of the docs here, I’ve got nooooo idea how to skim across the contents. And that page is BIG (which is amazing, but quite daunting!!!)
I appreciate there is the table of contents at the left hand side, but it would almost benefit from each section having a list of functions within it. If I click on “Array Functions”, I then have no idea how to get to eachrow unless I know that this function is already called “eachrow”.
Basically, I’m wondering if there is an index, or if we can create more detailed table of contents for each page that allow for easier navigation when you don’t know what it is you’re searching for? Has this ever been discussed?
I really love Julia! However, exploring the rich ecosystem in the core language is hard work for an experienced software engineer who has relished in getting some way into it, and then found the docs a bit hard to “explore”. If I could work towards helping improve the documentation or at least understand the previous discussion around items like this, then that’d be amazing.
Thanks in advance
