Helping out with the Documentation

You don't need to be a programmer or developer to help out with the documentation. 99% of the documentation is written in markdown, which is a very easy and widely used markup language to add formatting to plain text. If you would like to learn more about markdown click here.

There are three main ways you can edit the documentation:

  • Easiest Way: The easiest way to contribute is to submit github issues or message developers in the discord server to have them make the edits for you, more info on this here.
  • Simple Markdown Way: There is an easy markdown editor hosted by github that you can use to make small changes to pages, find info on that here.
  • Local/Full Project: If you want to add new pages or features and test changes locally you can use docker and VSCode to edit the documentation, more info here.
