Copying files from other projects

How to update documents.

Refer to

To build new docs, you'll need to have Node.js and Yarn installed on your system, and run build.bat in src/Documents.

Docs will be built into docs, where GitHub Pages treated as site root. So be sure to commit docs changes.

CI/CD is not included in this PR, so manual build is required after every docs update. yarn dev runs a local hot-reload-enabled docs server for easier debugging.

Docs engine is based on VuePress.
