Meshtastic documentation is an important ingredient to the overall project. We want users to hit the ground running with the information they need right at their finger tips. This section will discuss the documentation software stack, file organization, and style guides.
All of our documentation resides on GitHub. Instructions for setting up your GitHub account are located here.
Our documentation is powered by Docusaurus — a documentation platform built on React that utilizes markdown files. Because markdown files are easy to edit, most content changes should be fairly simple.
