Dwolla’s developer docs have gotten pretty darn good. We’ve discovered some really cool things that are working well and wanted to make these best practices available to anyone who might find them useful.
We’ve open sourced three repositories on GitHub today that we hope are helpful to developers building on top of Dwolla’s APIs and make it easier to suggest changes to the docs.
Our Developer Portal
One of the challenges we’ve had in the past is producing an intuitive experience that isn’t only developer documentation for code. There needed to be a section for getting started guides, how-to’s, SDKs, and more.
The technical documentation typically needs to function a bit differently than other content, so we made that a supporting element to the primary portal.
You can see the live docs here – https://developers.dwolla.com/
You can find the Github repo here –https://github.com/Dwolla/open-source-developer-portal
Powered by Slate, we’ve made a great deal of changes. The v1 documentation is largely focused on our OAuth API for developers building on Dwolla.com’s platform and applications.
Powered by Slate, we’ve made even more changes to this one to live inside of the primary developer portal. Currently, the v2 documentation is largely focused on white label ACH integrations.
