- [Instructor] D3 currently has two API references.…One each for versions three and four.…Do make sure you're looking at the right one.…This is our one here.…The naming convention for documentation…is to include clear references up in this URL…when you're looking at version 3…but to make no mention of version 4.…So if version isn't mentioned,…you're probably looking at the latest version.…So if we look in the API,…hopefully some of the links in blue…look familiar to you by now.…This bullet list here is a bit like a contents list.…
Clicking on a link keeps you on the same page…but moves you to the right location.…If you then hover over an example,…you can see the URL in bottom left…changes from API.md to README.md.…So these links here in the main body of the page…take you to a new page and load new content.…You'll be able to see some things here…that we haven't covered; shuffle, commute, bisect.…D3 is huge and very powerful,…and it's a really good idea to check the API reference…when you get stuck on something…or start trying to code something involved.…
