For the greater good of accessibility and discoverability.
Unless whatever kind of data it is you’re working with has a great built-in search functionality, your best bet to find everything quickly and easily is a compilation. It’s all in one place. Having to look here and there and everywhere in between for the info you need takes way too long. Compilations, instead, are a one-stop shop for all you’ll need regarding a particular topic. Easy!
Put one together myself today, as some more community documentation for Urbit. Its official documentation is… better than it was, but still not the greatest. Some info feels very scattered, and most of it is pretty hard to search for (thank you, ASCII glyph syntax) without whipping out power-user search tools. Hoping to help change that, and this compilation is a first step.
Compiling the thing gave me new insights as well. Useful business!
