CodeSmith Generator Documentation Update

Hey, I’m Cody Smith and I was recently employed at CodeSmith Tools a couple months ago by my dad, Eric. I’m here today to bring you an update about how CodeSmith Generator 6.0 will effect our documentation and how we’ve recently moved them to Confluence, a web based application that is used to create and share content in real time (Go here to see more about it). Now, in addition to the documentation online, CodeSmith Generator will be shipped with the documentation for offline use, in a .PDF format. This will allow for easier user-interaction for both online and offline users.

One of the reasons we have decided to move our documentation to Confluence is so that we can easily modify and manage our documentation in real time. This allows for users to collaborate with comments and feedback on our documentation as well as export specific documentation pages to a .PDF format. You can see the new documentation for CodeSmith Generator by clicking on the image below.

We are also happy to announce that we are updating the documentation and improving upon it. New screenshots have been added to go with the new look, and we have also fixed the wording to reflect for the new features and the removal of “CodeSmith Generator Studio”, which has been replaced with our new Visual Studio integration.

We’ve been going over our content and improving it just in time for the release of Generator 6.0. So, if you have any feedback on our new documents, please feel free to let us know by leaving a comment on the documentation home page or by emailing us at!
