    Honestly, I wish more documentation out there had comments/discussion at the bottom.

    For example, reading about setting up Open is Connect and having the first (most upvoted) comments on the first page explain things that might not be clear in the docs, analogies that make things easier to understand, or code/configuration snippets for a particular technology.

    Somehow the comments in PHP docs were usually like: "after reading the docs, here's what you might want to really know", a bit like those tl;dr apps for manpages:

  • docker-boilerplate-nginx-apache-php-mysql

    Docker compose boilerplate for reverse-proxy, apache, php, mysql

  • WorkOS

    The modern API for authentication & user identity. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
