Blender architecture overview

It's not complete, but also not nothing. :)
People familiar with how Blender works can find it useful to understand coding for Blender as well.

Please note that blender3d.org -> Infocenter -> Development is constantly been updated with docs for devs!

beyond the first page this is less of an architecture, rather than a design document.

Hi,

Im new to blender coding, I already read all blender developers information avaliable on blender3D and blender.org page (article about blenders structure is really good).

I have been reading blender code and most of the code is pretty descriptive, however still find some problems, it would be nice to have a database with globals, function, STRUCTURES, etc, etc, and their purpose;
i know theres a lot of work but at least some of the most important data could be documented (g structure).

If there is such a thing... can u tell me where?

Sorry for my english, not my native language

I was hoping to make a Roundtable at the next Blender Conference with as much Coders as possible to solve this, but if it could be done previously, the better.
How to use a Blender:
Put your model, rig, animation and textures in the Blender, turn the Blender on and wait for it to Render, then turn the Blender off and show it to your friends.

It's very useful. I had NO CLUE how to navigate the code, but now I'm getting the hang of it. Thanx! :)

On the wiki we are beginning documenting of useful blender stuff.

http://wiki.blender.org/bin/view.pl/Ble ... gTutorials

is in a very preliminary stage - the wiki is probably the best location to do this sort of thing.
