App for lammps manual and RSS feed for changes&new functions

Dear everyone,

I have to re-read about Lammps manual sometimes since Lammps has lots of commands and some of them changes occasionally. I think in some cases, like on a train or on the bed, it is more convenient for people to learn the commands if there is an app for smart phones, including iOS or Android. However, I did not find any information about that on the main web page. Does an app of Lammps manual exist? Or any plan for that?

My second question is, is that possible I can subscribe a RSS feed about the change and new functions of the new version of lammps?

Thanks in advance!

Best Regards

Liu

Dear everyone,

    I have to re-read about Lammps manual sometimes since Lammps has lots of
commands and some of them changes occasionally. I think in some cases, like
on a train or on the bed, it is more convenient for people to learn the
commands if there is an app for smart phones, including iOS or Android.
However, I did not find any information about that on the main web page.
Does an app of Lammps manual exist? Or any plan for that?

there is no plan for that. i don't see the point. the manual is
available online using mobile friendly formatting via sphinx (the tool
used for python), and as a PDF for offline reading.
there are lots of pdf readers for smartphones. since we are using
sphinx to generate the html pages, it should be possible to extend the
makefile in the doc folder to also generate an epub format file (which
would be akin to an offline website).

    My second question is, is that possible I can subscribe a RSS feed about
the change and new functions of the new version of lammps?

no. you can bookmark and review http://lammps.sandia.gov/bug.html or
follow/watch the LAMMPS repository on github (
https://github.com/lammps/lammps/ ), if you want to see more details
of the development process.
