About the Lino documentation

The Lino documentation is distributed over several documentation trees, each of them targeted at different audiences.

main website

A doctree for “everybody”, including (future) site operators, stakeholders and consultants.

user guide

A doctree for end users, key users and support providers

hosting guide

A doctree for hosting providers

developer guide

A doctree for application developers and core developers.

The source code of these documentation trees is published in code repositories as free content under the same licence as the source code of Lino itself. You can find the source code by clicking on the “Source code” in the footer of every web page.

For some applications we maintain also end-user documentation in different languages. These are independent doctrees, not a translation of the technical docs.

There is a whole section about Writing documentation in the developer guide.
