Re: What techno do you use to generate the documentation ?

That's for sharing that. And thanks to panik for the link to "Parsedown", I've snagged a copy of that as being able to test my markdown before I publish it on Github has lots of value. It might be noteworthy that github uses a 'github flavored markdown' which Parsedown renders correctly. https://he...

Re: What techno do you use to generate the documentation ?

Have a look at Parsedown: http://parsedown.org/

Code: Select all

<?php
include("Parsedown.php");

$markdown = file_get_contents('path/to/file.md');
$markup = Parsedown::instance()->text($markdown);
echo $markup;
?>
The css could be anything from anywhere that styles basic html.

Re: Can header pin 11 be used as GPIO17 in Windows 10 IoT?

To the best of my knowledge it is assigned as SPI1 CS0 permanently. I think this is a restriction enforced by the hardware but I may be wrong. SPI1 CS0 is one of 5 ALT functions of that pin. If there's a restriction (not sure) it's enforced by the OS, not by the hardware. All ALT functions: http://...

The problem is that they hear the word "Windows" and their eyes light up. Exactly. All the more weird that Microsoft doesn't focus on that. That's why I'm mentioning Windows RT on the Pi.

RT NT Kernel was compiled specifically for the nVidia Tegra ARM (Cortex A9 / A15) SoC, the RPi 2B is A7 ;) Microsoft does have the Windows 10 kernel running on A7, otherwise it wouldn't run on the Pi. No real reason for RT to be dead, other than short-term "this doesn't make money now". I'd dedicat...

Is there going to be a store of some sorts? And if so, is it going to need certification?
