New Erlang Documentation Site

As Erlang usage grows the documentation surrounding the platform is being subjected to much more scrutiny. The existing Erlang documentation site is difficult to navigate and I often find myself hunting for a particular module by guessing the module name in the address bar of my browser.

However, Dale Harvey’s takes a lot of the pain out of the old documentation. It has an ‘ajaxy’ fast search, where you can search for a particular function, a module, or both; but it doesn’t sacrifice state in favor of interactivity, because the pages are still static html.

Overall is a great improvement on the presentation of Erlang documentation. My only quibble is there’s no link to Erlang Inside on the erldocs home page. :)
