Piklist Documentation v3

Since we originally released Piklist in 2012, it has grown in functionality and complexity, and we’ve been trying desperately to explain all the amazing things Piklist can do for you.

Our first attempt at documentation was basic and the format couldn’t handle all of Piklist’s features.

Our second attempt was honestly a big mess. We tried to make our documentation visually appealing and cross-reference certain docs between different sections. The result was confusing… very confusing.

We are proud to announce Piklist Documentation Version 3!

Our new documentation site is clean and functional and does a much better job of organizing information.
Here is a list of some of the new features and benefits:

Easy for you to contribute
Built on Github Pages and the Hugo framework, the new Piklist documentation allows YOU to easily contribute and make changes, by creating a pull request. At the bottom of each page is an “Improve this page” button, that takes you to github and allows you to make changes.

Amazing Search
The search bar is absolutely amazing. Try it, we guarantee you’ll like it.

More Information
We’ve added more information about Piklist and how to use it.

More Tutorials
Tutorials are the best way to learn about the astounding things you can do with Piklist, and our new docs have an expanded library of tutorials.

Check out the new Piklist Documentation and let us know what you think: https://docs.piklist.com/

And while you’re at it, please download and test the latest Piklist beta on Github >

    Hi Steve/Piklist. I’m very new to Piklist (trying to figure it out quickly for a project that I’ve been unable to make work with other tools — here’s hoping!) and appreciate the new documentation. I don’t know how to use Github/Hugo and don’t have time to figure it out now to make a change so I’m just noting it here for someone there to perhaps address: most of the “Piklist Checker” page content (under “Getting Started”) also appears on the “Built-In Demos” page (also under “Getting Started”) after its content. I was very confused at first until I realized it was describing something else. Just wanted you to know.
