6.1. DataLad’s internal design


The handbook should have provided plenty of insights into common usage patterns for DataLad. When approaching the software not from a user perspective, but from a developer angle, you can find further information on the design principles and internal code structure in DataLad’s Design Documents. These documents are part of the developer docs at docs.datalad.org and constitute an ongoing effort to document and harmonize the development rules and processes. Head over to docs.datalad.org/design/index.html to find out more.
