Here is a gallery of what the most popular app platforms' developer pages are like. These sites are all extremely well-designed and maintained, because attracting and educating app developers who have no prior familiarity with the platform is a priority for the companies behind them.

I put this page together to serve as a reminder for myself while working on the App Guide project, of what GNOME's developer documentation should be like in an ideal world.

It is true. Partly inspired by a post you made a while ago, I decided to try to write an simple game using only the libraries described by Gnome as being part of their SDK. By SDK, I mean the libraries on this page: Gnome Platform Overview (http://developer.gnome.org/platform-overview/stable/)

There are a bunch of minor difficulties. In total, they add to a poor newbie experience.

The basic API docs are hit or miss. And GTK and GStreamer require a pretty serious amount of fundamental understanding before you can get them to do anything useful.

Profile

We're a friendly foxgryphon plural system. Our pronouns are "she" and "her" or "they" and "their."

We wrote Jewelfox's Otherkin FAQ, and a bunch of other identity-related ramblings.
