A product like ours is only as good as its documentation. We went back and rebuilt our documentation from scratch to include a bunch of new content that’s easier to navigate.
Let’s talk about some of the big new improvements here.
We’ve broken the documentation into sections: the Guide gives you tutorials to get you off the ground and teach you about the tools you have access to; Reference gives you complete reference documentation for all of our APIs and SDKs (firmware, Cloud API, Mobile SDK, etc.); Datasheets gives you complete documentation of all of the hardware that we sell; Support helps you with troubleshooting issues or problems with your order.
Search! Our documentation is now searchable so if you kinda-sorta know what you’re looking for, you won’t get lost.
We built a whole new Getting Started section that should make it easier to get off the ground if you’re new to the platform.
And last but not least, there’s a new section on How to Build a Product with Particle. If you’re using Particle to develop a product, this guide will walk you through all the steps from your first prototype to your mass manufactured product.
We think these new docs will make your experience with Particle more seamless. And if you disagree, fix our docs!
We welcome contributions to our firmware; you can edit every page by hitting the ‘Edit’ button in the upper right, which will let you write your edits in Markdown (Github account required). Or download the open source repository to make more complex changes and contributions.
