The DocC documentation compiler, available in Xcode 13, converts Markdown-based text into rich documentation for Swift frameworks and packages and displays it right in the Xcode documentation window. DocC also powers the interactive developer tutorials featured on developer.apple.com. In this challenge, we invite you to explore the tutorial functionality and design and build step-by-step instructions for an existing project you’ve created or an open source Swift package.
Begin the challenge
To get started writing a tutorial, add a Documentation Catalog to your existing project, or create a new framework project.
You’ll write your tutorial content in Markdown, and use directives to define specific types of pages and elements, like introductions, sections, steps, and assessments. Then, use the Build Documentation feature of Xcode — which runs the DocC compiler — to render your tutorial in a rich, interactive learning format.
Want help with your tutorials in progress? On Friday from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. PDT, you can visit the Digital Lounges: Drop by the Developer Tools Study Hall in the #devtools-study-hall channel to share your progress, ask questions about your project, and collaborate with others. You can also share your progress on the Developer Forums using the tag “WWDC21-Challenges,” or on social media using the hashtag #WWDC21Challenges.
