Welcome to our community information page. This is the location to discuss all kinds of editor related information.

About the documentation project

We decided to open the documentation process to our community. To us this is a natural consequence from all the positive experience we made during the last years.

We know,

  • writing good documentation is essential for both our users & developers
  • constant feedback helps improving so please feel free and discuss our articles or file requests for new ones
  • some of you have very profound knowledge of BaseX and its infrastructure. You are very welcome to contribute Articles & Edits.

Where to start

If you have not signed up yet: this is the moment to create your account.

You may now start by either creating articles or choose from a list of pages that might need some maintenance:

Wanted Articles

You may also add links to Topics you would like to see in our documentation:

Surround a word with double brackets:
[[Wanted Topic]] and that word will be highlighted in red.

Guidelines for new Articles

For now we only have few guidelines we used when creating new articles. Feel free to extend or change this list.

Don't be afraid
We happily accept your contributions.
Article Title
Please make sure article titles are singular nouns wherever possible.
Try to categorize your article via [[Category:Name]]
Code Examples
Please use the [[Category:Code Examples]]
Syntax Highlighting
