Contributing to the documentation

Whether you see a typo or you want to suggest a change to the technical content, we encourage you to fork this repository and submit a pull request.

The "Edit on GitHub" link that is in the upper-left corner of every page opens the source file of that page so you can easily submit a change.

Content organization

Articles are organized in directories that present the articles in a heirarchy in the site sidebar. When you add a file to a directory, it is automatically listed in that section in the sidebar.

The metadata (front matter) of a page is used to:

  • Order the articles in a section by the 'weight' parameter (Remember, lower weight = higher priority
  • Mark articles as draft: true so that they are not published

To add a new section in the sidebar, you must add a directory and add an file in that directory. The content of the file is shown when you click on the category in the sidebar, and the weight of the file determines the order in which the category is listed in the sidebar.
