More updates on documentation

Category: Core

By: Francois Suter

Things are definitely on the move for documentation these days. Here's a summary of what has been happening.

While updating the existing Core documentation, I also started thinking about the documentation concept in general. Until now we did not have anything systematic. Kasper wrote a lot of very fine manuals and everything that carried his name was obviously official. And of course, there's the listing on, but that's about it.

So I got in touch with the Documentation Team and started explaining my ideas. The discussion quickly moved to the documentation mailing list (typo3.projects.documentation) which has seen a flurry of activity in the last few days. The first results are coming in:

  • the ideas about what constitutes an official documentation are being laid out in the wiki of the Forge project "Core documentation"
  • the idea of having a true, usable online TypoScript reference surfaced again and requirements are being discussed, to make it real this time around
  • more topics will pop up soon, like discussing what new official manuals we could have

This all means that if you're interested in documentation, or if you just want to have your say, there has never been a better time to subscribe to the documentation mailing list.

Join us and express yourself. And if you're ready to roll up your sleeves and help out, get ready, there's going to be a lot to do!

Sounds great!

We allways use cause it's faster to use with the search option.

P. S. : Where is the ExtBase documentation?

Thanks for the pointer. I didn't know about it, probably because I don't use German resources ;-)

As for ExtBase I need to contact the team. There's no plan yet, but Franz's tutorial is definitely a good first candidate.

Think about to mention those tutorials. Is there an overview of all tutorials?
