As reflected in the two separate guides this repository generates, there are two fairly distinct user-persona categories expected to engage with the documented LiquiDoc/LDCMF instance.

The Roles

Anyone producing or editing content for this project — whether their title is engineer, technical writer, or documentation manager — is acting in the role of documentarian: a documentation contributor.

Another key role is that of administrator, or admin. This role is responsible for configuration and management of all the technologies underlying the docs build, as well as overseeing adherence to conventions and best practices by documentarians. Anyone fulfilling this role must be comfortable with all of the information in both the Documentarian and Administrator Guide. You are currently reading the Developer Guide.

The (Developer) Role

In the context of this guide, a developer modifies, extends, or otherwise contributes to the LiquiDoc and LiquiDoc CMF codebases.
