About the Project

The IOTA Wiki is a central hub for entering into the IOTA ecosystem. A community driven initiative to provide an up-to-date collection of introductions and further reading about the technology, the teams, the community, and everything in between. So anyone can learn how to build, adopt, and engage with IOTA, all in one space.

Built With

The IOTA Wiki is built using TypeScript, ReactJS and Docusaurus v2.0.

Getting Started


Preview Locally

To preview the Wiki locally, use the following steps. For more detailed scripts, see Pre-configured scripts for reference.

Please note that the Wiki has a lot of content, so currently the initial build is taking a while. Effort is taken to try and reduce the build time in the future.

  1. Clone the repository by running git clone and go to the directory with cd iota-wiki.
  2. Install dependencies with yarn.
  3. Prepare the environment by running yarn prepare, this has to be done only once.
  4. Preview the Wiki with yarn start, this will start a development server serving the Wiki with hot reload capability, so it will update content after any changes were made.

Pre-configured scripts
