2021 is the year of change. After having started this year with a new version Bonita 2021.1, with a name evocative of this renewal, the Bonita Documentation has a new look!

Not only a new look - it has been totally revamped with many practical and cool features.

Here's an overview of the new features and improvements.

Brand-new structure

Let’s have a quick overview of our new Bonita Documentation and you'll notice its structure as been improved:

  • Each component is directly available from the top menu bar.

  • For each section, a secondary table of content is now available on the right side of the scree, in addition to the primary table of content (on the left side of the screen), to make it easier navigate in the page.

  • A nice look and feel, with cards and videos embedded in the home page and other documentation sections, makes it easier to start with Bonita.

Bonita Documentation sources are still available on GitHub but have been upgraded from Markdown to AsciiDoc to offer a concise but also rich and flexible lightweight markup language.

Algolia’s powerful search API will change your search experience. Just start typing whatever you want to search, and you will see results appearing immediately. Nothing easier!

We particularly want to thank Algolia’s team who gave us the opportunity to use their product in ou Bonita Documentation.

Question. When will some one knowledgable on the platform write an A to Z book on coding applications from scratch? Could find no literature on Bonita.

Hi phillipusrudolph what are you searching for exactly?

Bonita is a low-code application offering lots of extensions you can code (custom widgets, REST API extensions, actor filters, etc.) but you don't need to code everything. That's why we have written a getting started tutorial in the documentation, and practical exercises to help you start building your application from end to end.

As you can see we on our Roadmap, we plan to build a clear separation between visual programming and coding in our next versions. That's maybe what you are looking for?

If I could not answer. your resquest properly, feel free to tell me what you are expecting by "A to Z book on coding applications" and we'll see how to help further.
