New Application Documentation

Today, we are pleased to release our new documentation experience - making it easier for you to quickly understand Northflank features and how to get started step-by-step.

  • Select between a dark and light theme to match your Northflank UI 🌓
  • Getting started is great when you're just starting out - it will guide you from setting up your account with Git and creating your first service, pipeline and all the way to deploying with custom domains
  • How-to guides help you configure your workloads in all stages of the DevOps workflow (Build, Run, Release, Observe and Scale) with in-line explanation and sane defaults, expanding on advanced topics such as addons (databases and persistent storage) or network security and encryption
  • API and CLI documentation provides an API reference to build applications integrated with Northflank - example code snippets are available for the Northflank CLI, JS client and API calls (curl, JavaScript, Python & Go)
  • Updated help popovers in the UI to reflect the new documentation
  • Improved fast search across both App and API docs 🔎
