ReadMe in Review: November 2023

Our team has been hard at work improving the ReadMe experience, and with so many updates, it can be hard to keep track of all of them. We've got you covered, though, with ReadMe in Review, here to summarize all of the changes and news from last month in one spot. 

Let’s see what Owlbert’s gift bag has in store for you this month:

Owlbot AI 🦾

  • If you’re using Owlbot AI, you can now export the questions your customers asked as a CSV, and you can now also use filters to narrow down the data set
  • Indexing improvements, including hourly re-indexes (as opposed to every other hour) and an improved ability to handle especially content-rich pages 

API Reference & Developer Dashboard 📊

  • API Keys in the API Reference section are now sorted by most recently used
  • ReadMe now renders OAS file information directly in the Getting Started page; you can enable and configure the Getting Started page by going to API Reference → Developer Dashboard → Getting Started
  • Developer Dashboard users will now be notified when making an export that exceeds our limit of 1 million rows
  • Added the ability for users to view their API calls directly in the reference section under the “My Requests” header

Other changes & updates ✨

  • Changelog: Added more design customization options, including date formatting, author visibility, and text layout
  • Accessibility: Made small changes to API Reference and navigation UI to increase contrast to a minimum of APCA Lc60, along with making accessibility improvements to code snippets, Owlbot AI, and the sidebar
  • SEO: Added options to include keywords for pages and include/exclude projects from your robots.txt file
  • Login preference: Users can choose to log into the documentation hub via an emailed link or by setting up an email and password, and ReadMe will now remember their preference when they log in in the future 

Meetups & events 🍻

November was a busy month for meetups and events! We had booths at GitHub Universe and AWS re:Invent, as well as hosting a meetup at Thriller Social Club on the 8th. Our team had a great time meeting new people, seeing familiar faces, and testing our skeeball skills at the meetup.
