THIS IS NOT OFFICIAL DOCUMENTATION: initial (and main) source of knowledge is still FQA.
This is community wiki, a repository of live documents covering plan9/front theory, usage, and development.
ACHTUNG! This is a work-in-progress prototype. See the technical details.
Document updates are periodically fetched by the backend, which renders the document tree and makes it available for reading via 9p and HTTP.
On Plan 9, run:
9fs tcp!wiki.a-b.xyz!909 /n/wiki
Visit wiki.a-b.xyz with a web browser.
The document source repository is currently hosted and available for browsing here.

For reading and writing:
Everyone is invited to get write access by asking (kvik) on IRC, grid, or email@example.com. Otherwise you may submit patches through contribution mechanisms on sr.ht, by sending a mail to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list, or communicating with your favorite editor.
Contributed documents are mostly expected to be markdown-formatted
files, denoted by the
.md file extension.
The formatting syntax used by the markdown processor discount used by the backend is documented in the manual page markdown(6).
Additionally, plain text files and HTML documents may be entered into
the repository with file extensions
These will be copied verbatim into the rendered document tree.
Warning only one of
a.shtml may exist at
the same time. Otherwise the document generation will fail. This is
a problem with the current implementation and may be fixed in the
Images and other static content is best hosted outside this repository. Dedicated upload and stable link space may be provided later.
