I’m thinking of starting an article series using Craft. I’d have kind of two angles. The first would be my usual learning by creating small programs that grow into larger programs. Some readers find those helpful in getting ideas of how to learn what the masses of code they are facing is all about.
The second notion would be to try to produce a sort of “linear” documentation of Craft, beginning at the beginning, and going as widely and as deeply as I can. Somewhere between a reference manual with examples, and a tutorial, I suppose.
Personally, I find the lack of any coherent narrative for Craft really irritating. There’s all this power. There are all these very complicated examples, many of which just do things without really explaining how they do them. Somewhere in those examples, maybe, there’s an example for what the reader might want to do, but it’s embedded in a program that does something else almost entirely.
I’m hoping to help create something better, perhaps both in terms of example code, and written documentation. I’m sure that I’ll need help finding examples, finding write ups, and so on. At this moment, I have no specific requests, but would appreciate questions and comments in this thread about whether this would be useful, what is needed, and most of all, how folks might help in small or large ways.
