Overview of Return to Ritherdon Docs (rtr-docs)
This repository houses the documentation for the, at the time of writing, unnamed project which is one project within the much bigger Return to Ritherdon project . The contents of the unnamed project consists of four smaller projects which are:
- Light Meter
- Eyes and Ears (this is a non-essential project and excluded from the diagrams below to keep things simple -- at this introductory stage)
As you can see, 'Artwork 1' is what this repository is for, which is just one artwork/project within the much bigger 'Return to Ritherdon' project. Within 'Artwork 1' is three smaller projects (listed and linked above). Below is a quick summary of how the three projects operate. (Please refer to the doc. files within this repo. for more in-depth breakdowns of how this all works.)
Goals of This Repository
The intention with this repository is to create a place which tracks all the documentation changes across the unnamed project in one place. This should help people whom are not exposed to the project in any sustained way have a single place they can go to for information about the projects within unnamed. With that said, the documentation hosted here is for technicians and 'back of house' staff. The content within this repository does not prioritise general public use.
You can read the documentation in this repository in two ways:
- read the raw markdown (.md) files within the project folders in this repository, or;
- download a 'Released' version and read that (as a .pdf).
