Wiki update: guide generator!

Post by Matlo » Tue May 29, 2018 6:38 am

GIMX has a lot of use cases, which made the documentation become complex. Lots of sections were specific to specific use cases. It became hard to understand. Many people came to the forum requesting a tutorial focusing on their use case. Until now there wasn't any such thing.

Together with GoDlike we worked on improving the wiki experience. The main page was refreshed and simplified. It now has a guide generator. The use case is selected using three drop-down menus: OS / control scheme / target platform (screenshot below).

Clicking on OK redirects to a page that matches the use case. All instructions on this page are applicable for the use case. The selected values are resumed at the top of the page, as shown in the screenshot below.

GoDlike also made really nice connection diagrams that will hopefully help people understand the use cases very quickly. Below is the generic diagram that resumes the GIMX capabilities.
