Application Documentation outdated?

edited August 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I'm trying to create my own Application for my site and I'm worried that the already minimal documentation available is very outdated.
I see references to the "garden" folder which is no longer anywhere to be found. The the structure.php file for creating tables also doesn't seem to be completely in tune with what is documented online. Are there updated docs or coming soon? How much should I rely on the online docs for now? Just worried that I'm gonna spend a whole lot of time trying to do something and have it be all for nothing.

    What S said, plus there's an excellent application in gitHub. It's the Addons download site built as an addon for Vanilla. Don't know if it's deeply documented though.
    Also... we all should be helping with documentation. It's too much stuff for just the team to do, it should be a community effort.

    Documentation is very outdated.
    The best way to understand how to create an application - see source code of Vanilla, Dashboard, maybe other addons. Read the documentation inside the source php files.
