Is there an expected date for updated tutorials? Failures to compile and instructions in the old hc-cli are becoming an insurmountable obstacle.

Mmm have you read the instructions of GitHub - holochain/holochain-dna-build-tutorial: Tutorial on how to build hApp DNAs for Holochain RSM? If you look at the generated app.yaml, it’s hoping to find a bundled .dna file that you have to pack before.

But you are right to point to this, there has been talk about a guidebook.

I will check it out, thanks. I believe that part of the issue is resource maintenance. There are so many conflicting, outdated, non-functioning resources still available that newcomers such as myself get lost and confused in.

They should all be removed, leaving only uniform, up to date information with multiple access points. For example, links to GitHub containing what I assume is accurate information, like the one you just provided, aren’t pointed to by the Holochain site / tutorials.

Good point, ping @pauldaoust

I am working to plan out a “documentation drive” to improve the holochain developer documentation, your comments will help guide the process, so thankyou! The one resource that Guillem linked to is in fact on the site, but it’s hard to know what it is before you click on it
https://developer.holochain.org/resources/
it’s the “DNA build tutorial”.

That link you both mentioned was very helpful, thanks. Is there a CLI tool to create the directory structure for you (workdir, tests, zomes, default.nix, Cargo.toml)?

@ guillemcordoba @ Connoropolous (I don’t have permission to @ yet)

:stuck_out_tongue: Yes, it’s git clone [email protected]:holochain/holochain-dna-build-tutorial.git

then like… delete .git folder if you want a clean start with git version control.
There’s not much fluff in the repo that you wouldn’t want.
