Conceptual article template
Contributing a new conceptual or overview article
Conceptual (or overview) articles answer the questions:
- Why should you care about this feature?
- What problems does it help you solve?
While a component, API, or SDK spec may help readers understand how to use or work with these features, a conceptual article provides more depth and context. Link off to the spec article, but try not to simply repeat the spec.
When naming your conceptual article, make sure it is consistent with the spec in terms of names, parameters, and terminology. Make sure you update both as needed.
NoteThis template is only a suggestion. Feel free to change based on your document’s purpose.
