GAVO DaCHS documentation

GAVO DaCHS is a Virtual Observatory server suite. We are maintaining the documentation on github to facilitate user interaction and contributions. So – feel free to submit bug reports or pull requests.

DaCHS documentation is maintained in ReStructuredText. Formatted versions are available at Readthedocs -- which is better suited for online use -- and (including the reference manual and the element reference) at ARI, Heidelberg -- this lets you download PDFs.

Plans for expansion include:

  • Features-organized examples (some sort of "gallery")
  • More accessible documentation separated by the different layers DaCHS handles, i.e.:
    • Data output/retrieved (services)
    • Query/request interfaces (renderers)
    • Input data processing (grammars)
    • Resources metadata
