Guides

Guides are comprehensive, conceptually-focused documents providing stand-alone introductions to core packages in addition to the underlying astronomical concepts.

Tutorials

Tutorials are step-by-step cookbooks for common activities that incorporate several packages. They are more specific and less conceptual than Guides but more extended than Examples.

Documentation

Documentation is the complete description of a package with all requisite details, including usage, dependencies, and examples.

Examples

Examples are stand-alone code snippets that live in the astropy documentation that demonstrate a specific functionality within a package.

Guides

The guides are long-form narrative, comprehensive, conceptually-focused documents (chapter-ish) providing stand-alone introductions to core packages in addition to the underlying astronomical concepts (e.g., CCDproc with observing-lite/image reduction). These guides will be a series of tutorials joined with conceptual/explanatory “glue.”
