Documentation for the CcpNmr program suite and data model APIs

The documentation for CCPN software and programming within the CCPN system is divided into several sections. The main high-level documentation with tutorials, frequently asked questions and how-tos are housed at the CCPN Wiki site which has mainly been done in a collaboration between CCPN and Spronk NMR Consultancy, although there are a few CcpNmr tutorials on this site. The low-level, detailed documentation about all of the individual popups and graphical elements in CcpNmr Analysis and CcpNmr ChemBuild can be found at the site for in-program documentation, which is largely generated from tool-tips and documentation strings embedded in the Python code (it is nonetheless proper English).  For programmers who wish to develop software using the APIs to the CCPN data model, for example to write macro scripts for Analysis, there is the main Python API and data model documentation, a combined CCPN introduction and programmers tutorial,  and also a short API programming tutorial script to help get started. More information can be found under some of the individual programs.

The CCPN team welcomes and encourages any contributions from the NMR community and CCPN users to the CCPN Wiki site. Currently, the wiki doesn't support settings of permissions per page, and to ensure quality of the official release documentation we temporarily limit the contributions to experts in the field. As soon as the functionality for setting permissions per page is installed, editing of official release pages will be limited to experts only, whereas the rest of the wiki will be open to others for editing.

To sign up as a contributor you need a gmail e-mail address in order to login to the wiki, and to write a short mail to any of the following site owners:

Make sure that your email Subject line mentions the CCPN Wiki and that you give your gmail address, a description of your background and to which parts of the wiki you can contribute as an expert. After you have been granted access as a contributor, go to the Guides for Contributors pages.
