Definition of Contexts

Contexts are defined explicitly by creating an instance of entity Context and filling in appropriate properties. Link to create Contexts can be found here - Create a Context.

Contexts have following properties:

  • Name - Short name of the context
  • Explanation - Full text explanation of the Context. Explanation supports Markdown syntax and can include other Entities.
  • Parent Context - Parent Context for this Context. Hierarchy of Contexts is created using this property.
  • Url - Sanitized name of the Context to be used in technical linking of the Context.

Example Context can be inspected here: Psychology

Contexts can not be embedded using special syntax, but they can be linked using simple HTML link functionality.

Usage of Contexts

Contexts group everything into useful chunks of information that can be visualized and understood by user.
