Re: Looking for more modern alternatives to Eclipsehelp Infocenters #next-generation #content-delivery

Harald Hermann

Hello Jeff,


we use Eclipse help for ~10 years and were always hoping that the Eclipse community is adding more features or updates the Eclipse infocenter.


As this was not their priority we (Holger Voormann and myself) started a prototype on our own of a modernized Eclipse help web UI.

The target is to improve the search results and to make it mobile ready.


We suggested it to Eclipse by responding to Eclipse bug 501718.

The feedback from the Eclipse platform team at the EclipseCon Europe 2019 was also positive and the platform team said they are willing to integrate it once we are ready and the reviews are completed.


The prototype is still work in progress but published on


Best regards,







Harald Hermann
