Meteor docs BEFORE 1.2.0.1?


#1

I’m running Meteor 1.1.0.3 and would like to review the documentation for this version.

Now that 1.2.0.1 has dropped, docs.meteor.com only points to 1.2.0.1 – how can I get/review the documentation for my specific version of Meteor?


#2

Is there something you’re looking for specifically? AFAIK the docs haven’t changed very much.


#3

I don’t know how to revert the exact documentation, but I check the version history at https://github.com/meteor/meteor/blob/devel/History.md when I want to see what’s changed.


#4

Had the same question in mind when I first encountered the updated docs. I think it’s fairly common that documentation for all relevant releases is still available after an update. And in fact there are some noticable differences between release versions 1.1 and 1.2.


#5

That’s actually good idea to have versioned documentation. Other frameworks have that, so even if someone is running 2y old version, it’s possible to get documentation.

@sashko what do you think?


#6

Currently, the recommended way to view docs for an old version is to get them from git:

git clone https://github.com/meteor/meteor.git
cd meteor
git checkout release/METEOR@1.1.0.2
cd docs
meteor

I’m hoping to soon switch to a saner docs website that provides some of these features.
