Documentation is often as important as a product itself. For example without having a good manual, ​you might experience not only difficulties to learn how to use something, but also miss some important functionality or setting that could simplify your life as a developer.

Regarding this, we recently released an entirely new, rebranded and nice looking version of the Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX documentation that offers the following improvements:

  • The help project is available on github icon GitHub as a public repository, which you can clone locally and contribute to by submitting modifications with pull requests.
    Note that ​all valuable contributions will be rewarded with Telerik points–just make sure you are using the same email for your GitHub and accounts.
  • MIT license that allows you to copy, modify, merge, publish and distribute the documentation
  • Provides a better Google-based search engine
  • Enhanced readability–improved styling (margins, paragraphs, images, code blocks and info/warning panels)Anchored_Titles
  • Every title is now an anchor, which you can directly copy and share as an URL. 
  • TOC reorganization for easier location of the topics
  • Responsive and modern web design is tailored for any screen and device size
  • Accessible, optimized and semantic footprint

Running Locally

Some of you guys work at private networks without Internet connection. Others love to code during flights, which prevents them ​from using the WEB. For all of you who have to switch to offline browsing, check out the details on how to run the documentation locally at ajax-docs Wiki. It includes helpful articles, from getting started (requirements, running locally and editing) through Markdown syntax to Troubleshooting.

It would be great to hear your feedback on whether you plan to contribute to the project or ​just request some other improvements for it in the future.
