Is it possible to generate OTP Windows 64-bit Binary File installer without documentation?
And add link to it on https://www.erlang.org/downloads?
We are installing Erlang (as a prerequisite for RabbitMQ) for our clients and they never need the documentation.
The installation is silent (non-interactive), so we can't disable "Erlang documentation" section.
Supporting disabling "Erlang documentation" section from command line can save 175MB and not a few seconds for each client's machine,
but IMHO, the better and simpler option is to have different (and smaller!) otp_win64.exe without documentation at all.
I looked at https://github.com/erlang/otp/blob/master/erts/etc/win32/nsis/Makefile and [erlang.nsi] - it seems like they are designed for generating such exe.
P.S. if you think it is a good idea, we need it for 21.3 😊
