Usage & Documentation

Keystone 6 is published to npm under the @keystone-6/* namespace.

You can find our extended documentation on our website, but some quick links that might be helpful:

  • Read Why Keystone to learn about our vision and what's in the box.
  • Getting Started walks you through first steps with the create-keystone-app CLI.
  • Our [Examples](./examples) contain a growing collection of projects you can run locally to learn more about a Keystone feature.
  • An API Reference contains the details on Keystone's foundational building blocks.
  • Some Guides offer practical walkthroughs on how to build with those blocks.

πŸ’‘ While our API Reference is generally complete, we are are still working hard on increasing the fidelity of our guides and examples. If you have an example you'd like see, please open a GitHub discussion!

Our @keystone-6/* packages are written for the Node Maintenance and Active LTS versions of Node; and our continuous integration seamlessly tracks that. You may have success with Node versions that are Pending or End-of-Life, but you may have problems too.

Version control

We do our best to follow SemVer version control within Keystone. This means package versions have 3 numbers. A change in the first number indicates a breaking change, the second number indicates backward compatible feature and the third number indicates a bug fix.

You can find changelogs either by browsing our repository, or by using our interactive changelog explorer.

A quick note on dependency management: Keystone is organised into a number of small packages within a monorepo. When packages in the same repository depend on each other, new versions might not be compatible with older versions. If two or more packages are updated, it can result in breaking changes, even though collectively they appear to be non-breaking.

We do our best to catch this but recommend updating Keystone packages together to avoid any potential conflict. This is especially important to be aware of if you use automated dependency management tools like Greenkeeper.
