As Glen points out, the tutorial is also written with Doxygen. You have to
click on "Boost.Hana Manual" in the side bar at the left. It should also be
the landing page when you enter the documentation at:

The tutorial goes through the basic concepts used everywhere in the library
and then explains how to use the reference documentation (accessible by
clicking "Reference" on the left panel). Perhaps you have already seen that
but it did not qualify as a tutorial to you? That would be valid criticism.

The documentation was built with Boost.Fusion as a model, i.e. a short primer
and then a thorough reference with examples of how to use each component.
I thought this was the best way to go given the nature of the library (a lot
of general purpose utilities and very little room for surprise).

Please let me know if you think the documentation is not adequate (or
anything else for that matter).
