As you know we’ve been working a lot on the docs both the developer guide and the JavaDoc’s, we nearly doubled the amount pages in the developer guide and we did it without "cheating" (e.g. cramming more stuff, increasing font size). You can see all that work in the developer guide section but what I want to discuss today is the new Component Gallery & Layout Gallery.
Both of these are a result of the developer guide work; as we did that we mapped a lot of the work back into the JavaDocs and eventually edited the
package.html files to produce that level of detail. We’re particularly proud of the fact that if you click almost any component or layout within those galleries you will see sample usage code that should help you get started with anything you need.
When writing this sample code we tried to reflect back on a lot of the requests that you guys made from us, so things such as dynamically downloading images to lists,
ImageViewer etc. are all covered. Carousel UI with the
Tabs component and even trivial things such as making a
Button look like a link.
This take a lot of effort to do so please provide us as much feedback as you can on the process, e.g. on my last post a developer asked a question related to
Table. The answer to that question is now (thanks to him) in the docs.
