John: can you comment on status here. Have you already got docs for this?

comment:2 Changed 2 years ago by johnglover

I haven't written any docs for this. I'm also not sure what the status is, Ross was doing some work on it recently so he is probably the man to ask.

  • Priority changed from awaiting triage to major

@johnglover: I don't think Ross has done much here and he's obviously occupied with DGU at ;-) As you worked on this earlier would be able to look at this and a) check what docs there are b) add to them as necessary :-)

Great to see this is done. I do have one question: why did we put this on the wiki rather than in the proper CKAN docs? In general, I think it would be better to use the wiki less and our proper docs more ...

comment:7 Changed 2 years ago by johnglover

I thought that we had some sort of consensus that the official docs were aimed more at system admins and people using the CKAN WUI/API, with the wiki aimed more at developers? It would be easy to move of course, but there is no real "developers" section in the official docs that I can see, and it's even called "CKAN's Administration Guide".

comment:8 Changed 2 years ago by rgrp

Hmmm. Emerging consensus from discussions in last few months is that wiki is fairly confusing and we should move core, solid docs (from whichever area) to the main docs.

Furthermore, key dev info like how to setup and do extensions *is* already in the main docs (see http://docs.ckan.org/en/latest/writing-extensions.html) and has been for 6m+. I've created #2226 for more work on docs and you may wish to comment there.

I'll have a look thanks. I'm +1 on using main docs instead (if we move everything), I was just trying to keep things consistent for now.
