Ticket #151 (closed enhancement: package issue)

Opened 7 years ago

Last modified 5 years ago

No links from packages back to Haddock index

Reported by: Orphi Owned by: DavidWaern
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: haddock Keywords:


With the right settings, Haddock generates a master package index that shows the modules for all installed packages and lets you navigate to them. Once you do so, however, there is no way to navigate back to the package index again. It would be nice if we could fix this.

HP 2010.2.0.0 (and previous version).

Currently haddock pages have only one "Contents" button - and given the work flow, this almost always points to the package's contents page. One can pass a flag when generating the doc pages to have "Contents" link elsewhere (like the master Contents, but I suspect that isn't right either.

Probably what we want is a flag in haddock that adds an "All Packages" link back to master Contents. This can appear in the same position as the "Contents" link, so a simple two clicks would take you from a module page back to the master contents.

That said, I'm not clear that cabal always can figure out where that master contents page is at configure time...
