Documentation Standards

Symfony Documentation Standards

CampaignChain documentation follows the documentation standards of the Symfony project.

Additional Conventions

CampaignChain documentation also follows these additional conventions.

  1. When referring to an CampaignChain entity, you should start the entity name with a capital letter. For example, you should use “Channel module” instead of “channel module”. This makes it clear that you are referring to a specific entity and not a generic channel, location, activity, operation, hook or milestone concept.
  2. All file names and directory paths are italicized. You should always include a trailing slash on directory paths. For example, public/images/icons/16x16/linkedin.png refers to a file name and your-project/src/ refers to a directory path.
  3. When referring to key or parameters names in configuration files, those names should be italicized. However, when referring to the corresponding values, you should enclose those values in single quotes. For example, the parameter foo and the value ‘bar’.
  4. CampaignChain documentation favors using :: shorthand for PHP code blocks and code-block:: syntax for other code blocks. For example:
  // PHP code block
  $wizard = $this->get('');
  $wizard->addLocation($location->getIdentifier(), $location);
  $channel = $wizard->persist();

.. code-block::yaml

  # YAML code block
    pattern:  /channel/linkedin/create
    defaults: { _controller: AcmeCampaignChainChannelLinkedInBundle:LinkedIn:create }
  1. CampaignChain documentation calls out pieces of key information using note:: and tip:: specific admonitions. For example:
.. note::
   This is something important.
  1. Images should be created in LibreOffice Draw. Please provide the original .odg files in the /images/ directory along with the related PNG file.
