Edge cases in which Yeoman may or may not work.

Any reference or summary of what?


I think we should also works on core parts (yeoman/generator and yeoman/yo) readme. Some should give more insight to the content of the repo and its place in the global architecture rather than being a yeoman general "introduction"


@SBoudrias I wouldn't mind working on some of that. Also think the yeoman/yeoman readme should better point to the various pieces that make the project up.


@addyosmani Yes, I agree!

Also, I feel the website still leave lots of pieces from the old yeoman prompt. It should be made very clear yo is a scaffolding tools using community written generators with different implementation.

Maybe we should clearly separate two sections: "Using Yeoman" and "Writing a generator", right now both concerns are a bit divided between the "Getting Started" and "Generators" section.


One is targeted at consumers and another generator authors. Makes sense.

Docs for 1.0 #829

8 of 14 tasks complete

I'm not clear on where documentation is supposed to go for the various parts of the Yeoman universe...

Is the yeoman/yeoman wiki supposed to be a central place for all Yeoman-related stuff? Including how to use yo, how to write generators, and even docs relating specifically to generator-webapp and other yeoman/generator-* projects?

[Composability] Generators composability #345


It would be nice to get some cookbooks for common task and present common tools that can be used to achieve them. (Cheerio, AST-Query, JsBeautifier, JS2Coffee, ESFormatter, etc, etc, etc)

@sindresorhus sindresorhus changed the title from Documentation Sprint (January) to Documentation request

I think we've covered most of this by now, especially in the redesign. If there's something still missing open separate tickets on the appropriate issue trackers.
