IMO it really helps when you work as a team rather than maintaining a project alone. This way you can motivate each other and also you don't feel pressured because you know that someone else can help whenever you need a break. I think it can really help to avoid burn out if there are 3-4 people who share the maintenance work.

Hello! When will the information about C ++ be updated? I mean C++ 20. Or should I start adding information myself?
Starbeamrainbowlabs
@sbrl
@Samsuper_gitlab Devdocs scrapes from websites. It's probable that the scraper hasn't been run in a while. See the conversation above for that.

@yekm
docs from man pages section 2?
Starbeamrainbowlabs
@sbrl
@yekm As far as I know DevDocs doesn't scrape man pages. I don't know of another project that does that, but it must exist.
Pavel
@yekm
cant find it
Adding all of them to DevDocs would make the search unusable
it will be slow or it is just a matter of too many seemingly useless results in the seach results
?
Starbeamrainbowlabs
@sbrl
I'm not sure. I'd assume they mean that the search would be too slow

I know that there is a man docset for Dash (and therefore for Zeal and Velocity as well) at https://github.com/Yanpas/mandocset
Pavel
@yekm
thats just html generation. it is easy. i saw 13 steps in adding-docs.md and i am starting to doubt the whole idea of adding man pages to devdocs, especially if perfomance imact will be noticeable.

Hi all
I'm setting up the devdocs locally for the first time
Downloading docs via "bundle exec thor docs:download --default" fails for all 6. For example, "(1/6) DOM Events FAILED (Errno::ENOENT: No such file or directory - gunzip)
Can anyone help me on this to resolve?
Sam
@samfundev
@chari1239 I wasn't able to figure out what was wrong but maybe this would be a good starting point: April 27, 2020 8:36 PM
HARI VARDANACHARI KORRAPATI
@chari1239
Hi @samfundev , I was able to resolve. With my analysis, this error mostly happens in windows machine.
  1. gunzip is not available, have to install it.(make sure gunzip cmd works rather gzip)
  2. by default tar cmd will use git's tar path which will give error : "C: cannot find path error", add System32/tar.exe path to your ENV PATH variable
that link will help

Hi @all , I want to work on the following issue
add the new version of pandas, I'm trying to understand the code. If anyone has any idea, who can walk me through what needs to be done, that will be helpful

Any prospects for adding LISP? Devdocs has become my favorite goto for documentation, and now that I have to learn LISP, I see there is a dearth of information on the internet. It all seems disorganized and not laid out well. Wish I knew it well enough to contribute.
Starbeamrainbowlabs
@sbrl
@Kenneth-Fries you probably want this trello board for that : https://trello.com/b/6BmTulfx/devdocs-documentation
Kenneth-Fries
@Kenneth-Fries
Thanks @sbrl ! I'm learning my way.
Jörg Thalheim
@Mic92
So let's say I want to build a scraper for Nix language manual, what would be the process? Should I first suggest it on the mentioned trello board or should I open a work-in-progress PR?
Anders Bälter
@baelter
I only check in here occasionally, but still interested in keeping this alive. I know ruby and would like to contribute, but only have time and interest to keep the docs I use up to date. Created that PR you asked for @Thibaut freeCodeCamp/devdocs#1285
Starbeamrainbowlabs
@sbrl
At this point @Mic92, I'd open a WIP PR
Jiawen Geng
@gengjiawen
I don't ruby, but I can build the doc and like to keep Node.js doc up to date.
Anders Bälter
@baelter
So atm we have, @gengjiawen, @j-f1, @sbrl, @gombosg and me who are willing to pitch in? Sound like a team to me :)
Starbeamrainbowlabs
@sbrl
I'm in (but don't know Ruby, so can't help there)

@MasterEnoc
Hi everyone, I made a PR of the elisp documentation freeCodeCamp/devdocs#1270 . Im willing to help maintaning devdocs, if you need one maintainer more count with me

Hey DevDocs contributors,

I have some exciting news.

First of all, freeCodeCamp has reached a point where we are pretty sustainable. I am confident that our nonprofit will be able to sustain itself for the rest of the decade – and all this in spite of the global recession and its impact on charitable giving.

And freeCodeCamp's codebase and curriculum are in a good place as well. We recently shipped our Python certifications, and are close to localizing our curriculum into major world languages like Spanish, Arabic, and Chinese.

We are now at a point where we can focus more energy on DevDocs, and allocate some of our engineering team to help as well.

Oliver (@ojeytonwilliams) has been contributing to freeCodeCamp since 2018 – mostly to our core Node.js + React codebase – and recently joined our team full time. He has a Ph.D. in particle physics from University of Southampton, is based in Brussels, and enjoys playing games of strategy. He is new to DevDocs, but is steeping himself in the codebase.

I met with @simon04_gitlab a few hours ago, and discussed his perspective on DevDocs and his experience as a contributor over the past year. Oliver and I also spent some time reading through the commit history, outstanding issues, and the chat history here on Gitter.

I propose that everyone here who is interested in contributing – including past contributors and maintainers like @j-f1 and @jmerle and of course @thibaut – meet for a 1 hour Google Hangout call. The purpose of this call will be for us to share ideas, and for Oliver to learn as much as he can about everyone's priorities for DevDocs.

For example:

  • Could we localize DevDocs into other world languages? (I've read the past GitHub issues related to this, but I think it's worth discussing again.)
  • Could we design a way that library maintainers could submit their documentation as a supplement to our scrapers?
  • Could we figure out the highest-priority APIs that need to be updated so we can triage our contribution efforts?

If you are interested in attending, could you add your availability to this When2Meet so we can find an optimal time? I hope to meet early next week – or even over the weekend if that works best: https://www.when2meet.com/?10203106-nTvMG

With your help, we can not just maintain DevDocs, but expand it. And we can continue to serve the global developer community with fast, accessible, and enjoyable documentation.

Awesome! Will be great to see this get off the ground again.

Hi everyone :) It's great to have the chance to get involved with this project. I'm looking forward to getting to grips with things and seeing where I can help out.

As Quincy said, I do need to get up to speed - I'm still very new to the codebase. Any and all advice is very welcome, particularly on what to focus on while going through the repo.

@Dravener
Good morning Developers. I graduated from Le Wagon web developer boot camp three months ago. I want to learn more and help as much as possible. I want to get docs in a json format from devdocs and try to process data. Is there a way to do that?
Jed Fox
@j-f1
Yes! Full doc content is at https://docs.devdocs.io/doc-name/db.json, and the metadata is at https://docs.devdocs.io/doc-name/index.json.
Jed Fox
@j-f1
Looks like we currently have five people signed up on the when2meet — @gengjiawen @MasterEnoc @sbrl @gombosg @baelter are you still interested?
Starbeamrainbowlabs
@sbrl
I'm interested, but I'm not sure how much help I'll be, so don't worry about me - my attendance is certainly not essential.
Bryan Hernández
@MasterEnoc
I'm interested, I just signed up
Gergely Gombos
@gombosg
Me too, and I still don't know why I'm not getting emails from this topic..... :smirk: Filled out the when2meet!
Gergely Gombos
@gombosg
Ah, that email checkbox I must have unchecked a while ago to get rid of emails.... :)

DevDocs_Contributor_Meeting_-_When2meet.png

Hey everyone, I think most of the people who are interested in attending the DevDocs contributor team call have now filled in their availability on the When2Meet. So I think we can safely say that the event will be on Friday at 10 a.m. Central time. All 8 people who responded were available at that time.

If you want to attend (even if you didn't fill out the When2Meet) please DM me your email address here on Gitter. Then I will send out the calendar invite on Monday.

I am excited to learn more about you all, your vision for the future of DevDocs, and what our near-term priorities should be so we can figure out a roadmap and figure out which priorities each of us should focus on first. Cheers.

@waldyrious
Hey @QuincyLarson — I would like to attend the meeting, if that's OK, mostly as a one of the semi-involved community members that may contribute every now and then, without becoming part of the maintenance team. I'll DM you my email address :)

@QuincyLarson What time is that in UTC please?
