The last couple of weeks I’ve been working on the formtools.org website rewrite. Sheesh, what a job! Huge bloody site – enough work to keep me busy for months.
First stop has been the documentation. As it stands today the Form Tools documentation is in a closed, custom MySQL DB that I wrote many years ago. It felt like a good idea at the time, but today I had something very different in mind. The new documentation is now generated by Jekyll, and fully editable by anyone via github. You can see a sneak peak here: http://formtools.github.io/docs/
Because the documentation will be static it’ll load a lot faster, plus it’s also downloadable for offline use. I’ll be adding in searching and tagging soon, as well as porting over the remaining sections.
Ultimate the documentation will be moved to docs.formtools.org once the new website is ready.
There’s a huge amount still to do, but you can see the general directions it’s heading. And if you spot any broken links, typos or anything else, just click the “EDIT PAGE” button!
