Kirby for dummies

Could someone point me in the direction of “Kirby for dummies” ?

You could start with the intro videos:

But our guide should get you started as well…

What exactly do you miss?

In addition to the above, I would try to get your head around Controllers and Models as soon as possible. This will really impove your snippets and templates and keep the code clean.

Forgive me if you already know it, but Kirby is of course PHP powered, so to work with Kirby you need a reasonable understanding of it (things like loops and variables are a must). There is an excellent free crash course here:

I kind of disagree on this, but I guess it depends on the type of person you are. For a minimal website to work, I don’t really think it’s that necessary to know much about PHP before starting to use Kirby. It probably would make things easier, but it will come naturally. Using controllers and models, while absolutely indispensable at some point, can also start later. Quickly being able to see results in the beginning is what kept me going. Copying the starterkit, looking at how things are constructed, changing it around a bit, adding own content, creating the first template… I guess there’s different ways of learning :man_shrugging:
