Dev Docs was born from a desire to have project-specific, developer-based documentation available within a site's Control Panel.

At Focus Lab we have a file in each project’s repository root that is meant only for developers. This file is in Textile formatting (like this readme file) and is meant to be the primary source of information to get “up to speed” on the project. You can learn more about our documentation practices in “our documentation article on EE Insider”:

Dev Docs will parse the Textile-formatted documentation file into a multi-page Control Panel experience. Each “page” is determined by each “h1. Title” section of the document. The documentation is cached in the database to speed up page loads while reviewing the docs. If the documentation ever gets updated, the cache is automagicaly cleared and the docs are updated in the database.
