It was never really in fashion for Grasshopper 1. Documentation has always sucked, mostly because the framework I wrote for it was cumbersome and inflexible, making it very difficult for someone other than the developer to provide docs.
I agree with you (as does basically everyone I know) that we need to do a lot better, and in fact the documentation system was the first thing we started writing on for GH2. It’s a bit back-burner now since there’s nothing to actually document as such yet, but I imagine as soon as some of the interface stuff becomes mature enough we’ll start again. We got trained linguists and everything on staff now to help out with this.
In the meantime GH1 will remain essentially one giant easter egg.
Yeah that’s clearly a bug, needs to be updated to link to discourse.
