These are the markdown sources for all of the Parse SDK guides. The content for the guides is stored in this repo, and we use Jekyll to generate a static site that is hosted on GitHub Pages.

Repository Structure

The guides are organized by platform inside the _includes directory. Each platform directory contains a set of markdown files, one for each main section in the guide.

└── _includes
    ├── {platform}
    │   └── {section}
    └── common
        └── {section}

For example, /_includes/ios/ contains all of sections for the iOS guide. There is also a /_includes/common folder that contains content that is shared amongst all of the guides. It helps us avoid duplicating content unnecessarily.

Can I Access The Docs Offline?

This repository is public and all the files are in markdown. If you'd like to keep a copy locally, please do!
