yeah, there's a learning curve to the hyperlinks and the page hierarchy stuff, but not too bad. This ugly ass page has been helpful for me: http://docutils.sourceforge.net/docs/user/rst/quickref.html#title

What i think a lot of people appreciate about the pyrad docs is that you explain what it is and why people should use it, then you say where to get it, then the next thing is a very thorough walk through for newbs very prominently placed, the Full Tutorial. I think we should emulate that to some degree, as an effort to lower the barrier to entry.
Also, dude fuck you've been working on the docs a LOT!

oh, ok cool.
I was thinking the CLI copy() func should probably be renamed to branch()
I mean API

that would be consistent with how we're referring to the action.

I just pushed some bug fixes to the old pyrad. Man, it was painful diving back into that code. So ugly compared to the new stuff.

:fire: :sparkles: :rocket: awwwwww yeah
Do you want to do the copy() -> branch() change or you want me to do it? It'll take 5 minutes, but don't want us to be stepping on each others toes.

for the -n name idea
I guess it should only create a named params file, but shouldn't actually create/save an Assembly object.
The reason being that the user hasn't had a chance yet to set their project_dir
and so the Assembly object shouldn't be saved until the user has at least finished one of the assembly steps.

I think that is currently true, but i'll doublecheck
