I’m a documentation freak - I take notes about everything I do and I record protocols and solutions as best as I can, in hopes that my notes can help me or others when issues arise.
I proposed the creation of the Symbiota Docs website, as a way to centralize and publish Symbiota software documents to the community. This project has finally been picked up by the Symbiota Support Hub and has been launched in October 2021.
I’ve set it up as a GitHub repository that is compiled automatically to a Hugo-based user-friendly interface. Contributors and Editors add Markdown files to structured topic directories, and the website is then compiled into HTML whenever a new GitHub update has been pushed.
The documentation is being translated into Spanish and French, and a language toggle option is available in the website.

The website is open-source and contributions of all sorts are welcome. Users can create a fork of the GitHub repository directly from the page they want to edit by clicking the “Edit This Content On GitHub” button. Each page also has a “citation” blurb, to help give credit to everyone involved in editing, reviewing or translating the content.
