Hi,

the Pharo Online Help project for Pharo 2.0 now also supports
markdown [1] for writing documentation and tutorials.

Markdown is an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format
that is translated into X(HTML).

If you are in Pharo 2.0 just go to Tools -> ConfigurationBrowser
and load PharoOnlineHelp. In the panel select a port or just click
on "Start server". Now point your browser http://localhost:8080

Attached you will find some screenshots.

The help system also includes an intro to Pharo and a start
for a simple Smalltalk introduction (based on the old beginners
workspace).

Next steps:
 - maybe we can extend the integrated API browser to support webdoc [2]
 - move to SmalltalkHub project [3]
 - continue with Pharo and Smalltalk tutorials for beginners 
 - better support for resources like images, js, css, ... (currently hard coded
   in OHFileRequestHandler) 
    
Feel free to help, code is on  
http://ss3.gemstone.com/ss/PharoOnlineHelp.html

Thanks
T.
