Currently the general documentation on the core of the framework is available on the repository's wiki and each component has its own documentation.
Startin' Blox is a tool that allows you to create a web application very quickly, in a few lines of HTML, and without much technical knowledge, through the use of web components.
Thanks to our tool, the application follows the new web standard (SOLID). This allows it to be "interoperable" with other applications that follow these standards. In practical terms, you will then be able to connect and exchange information very easily with other platforms, while maintaining control of your data.
Startin' Blox web components are simple HTML tags which use attributes to customise their operation.
Each component has its own independent data source that is specified within the attribute "data-src". This data source can federate others and thus provide access to large amounts of data. The result is that your application can have access to a large data platform, out of the box.
To start using Startin' Blox you just have to insert this script in the "head" tag of your HTML page: https://unpkg.com/@email@example.com
It gives you access to the most used features via web display components, forms, but also a calendar, a map and much more.
You can explore the general documentation on the readMe from the core of the framework.
Other Web Components of the framework are accessible but are not integrated into the core. You can import them with other scripts such as the router: https://unpkg.com/@startinblox/router.
Each component has its own documentation.
Test the demo above, if you haven't already done so!
New components from outside of the core framework are developed by the community (such as the editor above!). Developing a component is relatively easy, don’t be shy ;). A tutorial walking you through this process will soon be available.
SOLID is a set of conventions and tools useful for building decentralized applications based on "Linked data". The principle is to separate the data from the interface to rewrite the maps of today's digital economy, and propose a more accurate web by giving back the power to the user over his data. Startin' Blox aims to facilitate the adoption of these specifications to participate in the emancipation of a decentralized web through an application approach based on ease of use.

It is important to us that junior developers can feel comfortable with the framework. If we want a massive adoption of the Solid specifications, they must be part of it! This accessibility is at the heart of Startin' Blox's philosophy and ambitions; we are actively developing more user-friendly documentation and support.
As with any open source project, it is with you, your projects and your contributions that the framework will develop. Whether it is for an update of the documentation, an unsatisfied curiosity, to propose an improvement or a component, do not hesitate to contact us via our form or directly by proposing issues on our git repository.
We will be happy to hear from you :)
