  • Luke Woodward: Robots Write The Docs

    WordCamp Sacramento 2015Speaker: Luke Woodward

    December 30, 2015 — http://developer.wordpress.org/reference has become the canonical source for documentation. This source comes from pulling out internal documentation from the WordPress code base. The best part — this is open source software. We’ll explore how we can take the work the core docs team has done on the WP_Parser project (a super smart robot) and repurpose it to make our lives, and our plugin and theme docs, much better!


  • Luke Woodward: Robots Write the Docs

    WordCamp US 2015Speaker: Luke Woodward

    December 12, 2015 — Documentation can be one of the most challenging things for a developer. You can write the most amazing code that’s incredibly easy to use, but without a good set of documentation no one beside you will use it! But times are changing. You can have the robots write the documentation for you! Or at least very nearly.

    The WP_Parser project has given birth to the incredibly useful developer.wordpress.org/reference site based on the massive amount of internal documentation work that has been going on in core over the last years. This is an exploration of how other developers can take that work and leverage it into their own reference site taking advantage of all of the internal code docs they have already written.

    September 3, 2014 — Backbone.js and Underscore.js are exciting additions that allow more scalable Javascript creation, both on the front and back end of the system. Along with these great tools came some other, smaller utilities and helpers that make the life of a WordPress Javascript developer just a bit easier.

    So let’s explore just some of the hidden wonders in the wp object: wp.ajax, wp.template, wp.shortcode, and wp.html.
