Our Docs Have a Fresh New Look
New content, fresh design, better search
The engineering team here at Decentraland is working day and night to expand and improve our SDK. We’re always looking for ways to make things more efficient, more powerful, and more intuitive.
We know that our docs make up a big part of your experience with the SDK: brand new developers just getting started with Decentraland make our docs their first stop, and veteran builders rely on them as a resource while digging deeper and deeper into the metaverse and all of its possibilities.
So, today we’re super excited to share our new and improved developer documentation with you!
We’ve redesigned the entire site, we’ve implemented a new search engine, and we’ve added some new info explaining the ins and outs of Ethereum.
A new and improved layout
The Decentraland platform is continually evolving and growing more complex as we add features to the SDK, and as the community pushes those new features to their limits.
With this evolution comes new insight. We took a look at how our old docs were organized, and made some big changes to how things are presented. Our biggest goal is to put information where you expect to find it.
Now, all of our beginner info can be found in What is Decentraland? Are you entirely new to the platform? Everything you need to build your first scene is in our Getting Started section. Do you need more comprehensive explanations of how the SDK works? Check out the Development Guide. Curious how you can start putting blockchain tech to use in your scenes? Read our Blockchains Interactions docs.
We also have release notes, a library of tutorials (with videos!), instructions on how to deploy your work, design advice and best practices, and some examples of finished Decentraland scenes.
Find what you’re looking for, faster
We want our docs to be as comprehensive as possible, but as we add more and more information it can become harder and harder to find what you’re looking for.
Lots of you have asked for an improved search engine in our docs, so we added just that!
Intro to Ethereum
We’ve also written a new article that introduces the basics of Ethereum with our developer readers in mind.
Read Ethereum Essentials for a more technical run-down of wallets, blockchain transactions and validations, side chains, tokens, smart contracts, and more.
We’re really interested in your feedback! At the end of every page in the documentation you’ll find a ‘Was this article useful?’ note. After clicking on Yes or No, you’ll see an box where you can give us your feedback about that specific page.
Finally, don’t forget that our docs are all completely open source and hosted on GitHub. If you ever want to make a contribution to the content in our docs, please open a pull request!
