The Marginalia Manifesto

Jan 5, 2011 some comments

I have a very strong opinion regarding the importance of clear and complete documentation. My reaction to poorly documented code, products, and services is visceral to the point where I often refuse to release even the most humble library without code comments, examples, tests, invariant definitions, a logo, and an “official website”. However, time is not always on my side for my personal projects, so I am constantly looking for ways to minimize the amount of work required to generate well-documented software without sacrificing quality. Marginalia is a step in that direction.
