Subject [jira] [Commented] (JEXL-233) Documentation rewrite
Date Sat, 01 Jul 2017 06:54:00 GMT


Dmitri Blinov commented on JEXL-233:

There are so many ways to tell a strory, indeed. So, first we need to agree what kind of documentation
we need, or how it should be organized. From similar scripting language projects I see that
every language comes with either a language reference or language specification. The documentation
usualy contains a brief introduction, syntax overview, and then continues with more deep dive
about operator behaviour, property resolution order, type casting, integration, customization
etc. Examples are usually placed inside the sections they are to illustrate. I think we need
the same language reference, with syntax overview for end-users being a chapter at the beginning.
So we need to stop thinking about syntax.xml and start thinking about reference.xml to put
everything in order
