From NixOS Wiki
This is a container category for the five main resource categories on the wiki.
- If information is more encyclopedic (with a similar scope and tone to pages on Wikipedia), a page would be considered a pedia.
- If information is less encyclopedic and more similar to a compendium, study guide, or a bibliographic guide, a page would be considered a guide.
- If information is more about direct instruction to achieve a specific task, a page would be considered a tutorial.
- If a page is more just a set of tips and tricks (less instructive than a tutorial), it would be a cookbook.
- If a page is a detailed reference (like a man page or full software manual), it would fit under references.
