I’m working out the logistics on how to share this with the whole Meteor Community, but I have been able to get the Meteor Community, for open source documentation purposes, free access to all the GitBooks we might be able to create together.
So @patrickcneuhaus I’d be happy to get you set up to be able to edit or import your docs into a GitBook. GitBook also syncs with Github repos and can keep docs in sync with Github.
I’ve been using this solution for my own internal docs and it’s such a huge time saver to write docs and they always look amazing too. I kept noticing other top projects choosing GitBook as their method to create docs.
I REALLY also support eventually getting core docs into the Official Meteor Docs because the most important things belong there. We’ve also recently created a #docs channel on the Meteor Community Slack if anyone wants to collaborate more easily on additions to the Meteor Docs. @filipenevola has been super supportive of us making additions or updates.
In case it is helpful, I’ve also found a great tool to run on your desktop to make editing the Meteor Docs easier. It’s called Typora and I would highly recommend it now that I’ve used it a bit.
My thought is that perhaps we could more easily create Community Guides / Docs that individuals or small teams might want to create using GitBook and over time, we can get all the best stuff into the Official Meteor Docs.
I started a GitBook to write more helpful content about Meteor + Vue as I build my own app. I’d like to give back to both the Meteor & Vue communities by writing up as much relevant content as I can.
For the open source community, I believe in creating open source docs and allowing people to sponsor or give gifts via Github Sponsorship or similar if people really end up appreciating the content. I think this beats trying to write & sell books or something similar. Also, we can all easily edit and help maintain common documents in the long run.
