Subject Re: [website] Getting started page
Date Tue, 21 Nov 2017 22:35:01 GMT
The getting started page is confusing to me. Is it getting started developing apps or getting
started contributing to the framework?

That’s two very different things and two different setup paths.

I also agree with Piotr that we need more than one set of instructions. Ultimately, I’d
like to split up the instruction sets for contributing to the different pieces. Someone contributing
to the framework should not need to build the compiler. etc.
