User Classes

Introduction

DCore is a very flexible platform which can be used in a number of ways by different people.

Conceptually, configuration requirements, and command usage can be broken into 'User Classes' simplify the task of finding relevant information.

With User Classes, tasks and operations can be separated according to use making it easier for users to find the information applicable to their current use case.

The premise is that a general user, or content publisher (for example) doesn't need to know how to seed or mine while everyone needs to know how to vote or change password. By tagging the documentation with the associated User Classes, users need not waste effort learning about things that are of no immediate interest to them.
