May Updates for Koype
Koype's hit a bit of a nice groove in development. Right now, I'm focusing on a few things directly and indirectly related to the project:
- Building out some core themes,
expanding the developer and
user documentation and
- working on the external editor interface
A bunch of things in a list - always fun! Let's go into them.
Can't call itself flexible if it doesn't have theming support! This has been more of the trickier part of Koype's development but I'm working on bringing Simplest, So Simple and Compass to Koype. The goal with these themes is also to provide a bit of reference for those coming from site generators like Jekyll to see how things are done over here. I'm also working on porting the theme used at my older static site and documenting it so it's shown as a more feasible thing to people.
External Editor Interface?
Koype wasn't meant to "ship" with a way to publish content within itself. I'm adding logic to allow for quick links to compose around one's site. This is all to promote people to work on more focused interfaces and tools for doing whatever it is you'd want to do with Koype. My flagship interface is going to Koype Publish. It'll focus on writing long form articles and content meant for larger forms of consumption. I have a lot of ambitions for it but won't commit to anything not on the roadmap just yet.
Saving the best for last, I'm slowly going over all of the code to find places that haven't been documented. Thankfully, I have a lot of screenshots of the code as it's being tested so I can use that to build user documentation - screenshots coupled with text explainers is excellent! I'm always open to having help with this so check out https://docs.koype.net and tell me what's up.
Eager to continue this journey with y'all!
