Automated Documentation Previews

Overview Greetings, and welcome to my first blog post at The C++ Alliance. I’ve recently begun working on an interesting project for the Alliance which might also have more widespread applicability. The same requirement could possibly apply to your organization as well. Consider an open-source project that has multiple contributors who are submitting changes via pull-requests in Github.

However, it has given me a lot of time to work on various projects, which is a reasonable trade-off (at least in my opinion).
