# Typesense Documentation

👋 Welcome! Let's get you up and searching.

The documentation is divided into the following sections, that you'll find links for on the top navigation bar as well.

Section Purpose
Overview This section gives you a birds-eye view of Typesense, why you'd want to use it and comparison with alternatives.
Guide This section walks you step-by-step through how you can use Typesense in different scenarios.
API Reference This section gives you detailed information about all the API endpoints and parameters in each version of Typesense. When you're viewing any of the versions, you can click on the version dropdown in the Navbar to switch between versions.

# Help us improve the docs

We also welcome contributions to the documentation, especially to the Guide section. If you've integrated Typesense with a framework that's not covered, we'd love to have you share your work with the world. Please reach out to us to collaborate on this.
