Check out Drupal's API documentation for a good example:

You may also want to check out and search for documentation; it's a huge repository of active, open-source projects.

Hi all,

Either writing programmer's guides is as much a dying art as tech authoring is rumoured to be, or my query is too daft to answer - but I got no responses to my original plea for help, so I'm displaying my capacity for audacity by reposting.


I have not worked on programmer's guides but now have the opportunity to do so. The initial draft I have seen looks rather sparse and not the best structure. Please can anyone recommend a decent example of a programmer's guide that I can look at for comparison?

I particularly need to know what the range of contents might need to be, as well as structure. We have format templates to use/adapt.

If the example contains or is accompanied by a Reference Design, that would be even better.

Many thanks for your help (pretty please?),
