My current setup for documenting a project:

  • Documentation:  Screen captures of all physical products, BOMs, User Guides
  • Eagle: The schematic and board files. Gerber files and exports from EagleUp ULP.
  • Software: Subfolders for each unique codebase (e.g. Firmware folderfor Photon firmware, Server folder for HTML, CSS, and Node.js files)

What do you do to document your OSHW projects?
