MorphOS Library
« on: January 14, 2016, 08:26:02 PM »
MorphOS Library is a wiki based library of MorphOS related documentation and it offers a lot of information about the operating system. Take a look at it if you're already a MorphOS user or just curious to see what it is all about!

The latest updates include information about programs bundled with the system:
Applications included with MorphOS
Tools included with MorphOS
Utilities included with MorphOS
Screenbar modules included with MorphOS
Games included with MorphOS
Blankers included with MorphOS
Shell Commands

...and a big tutorial for new users:
Getting Started - A Beginner's Guide to MorphOS

...also some smaller tutorials like this:
Preparing an Amiga Hard Drive

it is nice to have such informations but it is quite abvious that developer documentation is lacking seriously compared to wiki.amigaos.net even Krashan work while being good is not enough unfortunately. Maybe they should just wrote developer documentations when it differs from the orginals RKMs. What in the RKM is valid or not when developing for Morphos, what is deprecated or bad practices in them, using XYZ instead...

Yeah. What is lacking is complete autodocs. Many library documentations are incomplete and often split in two part (AROS stuff and new MorphOS stuff) or AROS docs are just stubs.

MorphOS dev docs shine on one thing, though: they all are available in AmigaGuide hypertext format, including MUI.

Any plan to improve this?

It's easy to generate AmigaGuide versions of any autodocs using the official AD2AG tool, see http://amigan.1emu.net/releases/OS39AGAD.readme

Not really. I am infrequently improving documentation on the stuff I am working on (MUI, Locale for example) but good documentation is a huge task we dont have time for, really.

@Minuous

Oh, that is cool. I have copied guides from Amiga NDK 2.1 CD and using it side by side with MorphOS SDK docs.
