I am starting to write the documentation for the current stage of development. This can be found here.

This documentation is targetted to developers that understands the basic programming context. They do not know that Typescript or Node.js is. This may improve the acceptance of non web developers who are interested in writing addons in a more modern way.

I have decided to target people who want to write more complex addons. Small addons should be either transpiled without this framework, or should keep the LUA context. This decision reduces the amount of people that may want to use this tools, but as a developer with OOP in heart i can not simplify it to a LUA only context.

QhunCore has been my test framework with LUA base. In my opinion there is to much boilerplate code nessesary to accomplish a mid to large addon with a good maintainability.

Still I appreciate every comment/thought to alter the framework to improve the acceptance more.
