I bring a status update of the SpongeDocs.
As reiterated at the State-of-Sponge III, many new features and changes have happened to the API 2.0. Some of these changes are still being written into the implementations as we speak. With the release of alpha builds of Sponge (coremod), many developers are keen to try it out and make test plugins. We need to do our best to accomodate this rush, as it will help facilitate more rapid development.of the Sponge API and implementations, as well as getting some neat plugins out there.
To do this, we need to be aware of the shortcomings in the present documentation, and also the status of the implementations. (There’s not much use having docs that describe features that are not yet enabled). I have attempted to summarise the important areas that need work. Most of them are in the area of Plugin development, and some contributions from senior developers would also be appreciated - when they aren’t busy actually writing or testing the implementation.
Pages that urgently needs updating
[DONE] Messages (Text API R2.0) [DONE] Commands [Done] Dependency Injection Sponge Commands
Pages that need content
[DONE] Blocks Entities Layout & [DONE] Debugging pages (contributing) Permissions
Pages that need Creating
Channel API Inventories Items Data API Persistence World Management Sponge Permissions
(Note: Some of these issues are being worked on, check GitHub to see what we’re up to)
This is by no means a comprehensive list, there are many more issues on the SpongeDocs git, and many more to be uncovered. The above items do represent the priority issues we should be addressing to help maximise the potential of Sponge. Where the API is not yet implemented, let us know and we can tag the issue appropriately.
So, a call to all those who feel informed enough to contribute, show us what you can do!
SpongeDocs needs your brains!
PS: Thank you to everyone who has contributed to SpongeDocs so far. Be proud that you have helped make what was once a skeletal Wiki into a magnificent information resource.
