Mattias Noback:
Project documentation with Sculpin
Dec 12, 2016 @ 09:43:43

Matthias Noback has a recent post to his site sharing some advice and examples of how to use Sculpin for your project's documentation to make it a quick and pretty painless process.

One of the key ideas is to generate documentation instead of writing it. This should help prevent duplication and outdated information that is not trust-worthy and would therefore be neglected. I'm currently looking for ways to technically accomplish such a thing with PHP projects. This should result in reusable tools which will make it easier and more fun to document future projects while writing the code.

[...] I wanted to use Sculpin to document another project, the main project. So I started figuring out how to run Sculpin and generate a static subsite (not a blog) based on files in a subdirectory of another project. It wasn't all that hard, but I'll share the steps here anyway.

He walks you through the creation of a new Sculpin-based site and how to test and ensure it's all working correctly with simple content, a layout and configuration. He finishes out the post mentioning the themes available for Scuplin applications and links to the Bootstrap 3 theme as an example.
