Improving Developer Documentation

We are working to enhance the developer documentation experience at WooCommerce to make it more accessible, comprehensive, and user-friendly. This will involve reorganizing content, adding new resources, and gathering community feedback to ensure the highest quality.


We are currently scoping the technical lift, and triaging existing content from various locations. We are committed to this project and eager to receive community feedback to help shape its development.


The primary goal of this project is to improve the developer documentation experience at WooCommerce by making it more accessible and user-friendly. We will create a new home for technical documentation at Woo, reorganize existing content, add new resources, and collaborate with the community to ensure that the documentation meets the needs of developers working with WooCommerce.


Developer documentation is an essential resource for those working with WooCommerce, as it provides guidance on using APIs, extending functionalities, and customizing various aspects of the platform. However, the current state of the documentation may not be comprehensive or organized effectively, making it difficult for developers to find the information they need.

What is changing?

We plan to revamp the developer documentation experience at WooCommerce by:

  1. Creating a new home for technical documentation.
  2. Reorganizing existing content to make it more intuitive and easy to navigate.
  3. Adding new resources and updating outdated ones to ensure that the documentation is comprehensive and up-to-date.
  4. Engaging the community through feedback and collaboration to ensure the highest quality and relevance of the documentation.

Why are we doing this now?

Improving the developer documentation experience is crucial for ensuring that developers can efficiently work with WooCommerce and create innovative solutions. By addressing this need, we aim to foster a more vibrant and supportive developer community.
