Get started

Get started writing documentation locally

All of Dolittles documentation is open-source and hosted on GitHub.

Add a new repository to the main Documentation repository

This guide teaches you how to add a new repository to the Dolittle documentation structure.

Start by cloning the Documentation repository:

$ git clone

Put your documentation in markdown files under the Source/content folder. You can also add images and other assets in the same folder. Please consult the writing guide for more information on how to write documentation.


All documentation is written in markdown following the GitHub flavor.

Markdown can be written using simple text editors (Pico, Nano, Notepad), but more thorough editors like Visual Studio Code or Sublime Text are highly recommended. VSCode also has a markdown preview feature.

Read the writing guiden and style guide for more information.
