Design Docs

This directory contains design documents produced during the development of Nexodus. Our process values:

  • Openness - Anyone should be able to discover the backlog of ideas, as well as participate in reviews of proposed designs.
  • Design Artifacts - We value the creation of design artifacts along the way to help others understand how key decisions were made throughout the life of the project.


We follow a lightweight design process that includes these components:

  1. Backlog - The backlog of enhancement ideas lives in GitHub Issues.
  2. Create a Design Proposal - A design document is created using the template.
  3. Design Reviews - A design document should be submitted as a pull request to the docs/design/ directory. Review and merging works just like any other PR.
