# Library Design Guidance

This directory contains some documentation of recommendations for library authors who want to make IPLD libraries in a new language (or, perhaps for readers who want to understand an existing library better).

Some of the information expressed here comes down to opinions moreso than specification; what is good ergonomics may vary wildly per language, so take these as recommendations rather than strictures.
