Accessing the component guidance site for SPEAK in Sitecore 8.1

Accessing the component guidance site for SPEAK in Sitecore 8.1

The release notes for Sitecore 8.1 mention a “component guidance site with properties reference and component demos” for SPEAK. That caught my interest since SPEAK is very high up on my list of technologies that I want to play with. Unfortunately I am still very new to it and it took me way too long to figure out how to even access this guidance site.

This post from Martina Welander explains how SPEAK apps are registered in the core database. I then tracked down the guidance site and the URL can be constructed based on the item path in the core db. So maybe I can save someone else some time by posting this. The URL to the component guidance site for SPEAK in Sitecore 8.1 is:
