A Doc Maker's Toolkit


This Doc-building Toolkit is designed for anyone who wants to build Coda docs and needs a place to plan, manage tasks, and keep everything organized.

STEP 1: Start here
Take a few minutes to think about what you’re trying to achieve. Make a wish list, then prioritize it. Brainstorm doc titles. It’ll make doc-building so much easier. The best docs tackle a real-world problem/opportunity for a specific individual or group.
Don’t start from scratch if you don’t need to. Browse the gallery for doc inspirations. Paste links from articles, talks, or anything else that informs/guides your doc design/content.
They say: “A little bit of planning goes a long way.” It’s true for doc-building, too!

STEP 2: Build the doc
Keep track for your ideas or any sync session with other collaborators
Not sure how to start or want a quick way to spin up a new doc or doc sections? Just type the slash command (/templates)anywhere on a doc to get started.

STEP 3: Get ready to publish
If you want some other eyes on your doc before you hit the ‘Publish’ button, invite people and solicit their feedback using this .
While this is just a guide, here’s a checklist of some of the best tips from our resident writing/design experts at Coda.
