#238 closed task (FIXED)

split up hacking howto in wiki

Reported by: Will Kahn-Greene Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.2.0

Cc: Parent Tickets:


The hacking howto in the wiki is too big and covers too many
different things. It's better to break it up into smaller topics
which are easier to link to.

Action items:

1. figure out how to break it up
2. break it up

The sooner this gets done, the better.

I am interested in helping out with this ticket. Willkg when you
are ready to discuss this please let me know.

If you're a new programmer, where does everything fit? We should
have a nice guide to this!

One thing we need is a tutorial of sorts for programmers.

This guide should describe just very generally:

-  the routing
-  the views
-  the templates
-  the forms
-  the database/models

... and point to other pages for more specific information :)

(A good strategy might be to do a "walkthrough" of one of the
existing, clearly developed and simple views, from start to finish,
which uses all these pieces?)

I'm not sure if that should be its own ticket, since it's new
content. Probably yes?

Chris: I think that should get spun out as a separate task. This
issue is more about restructuring the existing hacking howto
content into something better. That doesn't preclude adding
additional content, but I don't think additional content should be
under the domain of this issue. My 0.02.

I'm traveling for the next week and a half and don't have time to
work on this until I get back. If when I get back it hasn't gone
anywhere, I'll help out then.

Okay, I agree.. I originally started to write that up as another
task but then worried that this would be upsettingly creating too
many related documentation tickets. Thanks for weighing in.
