How to add translations

Let's say you would like to translate the manual to english. (en)

  • Move all transalted chapters to /_chapters_en
  • Edit _config.yml:
    • add a new collection: chapters_en (just copy the entries for 'de' and replace 'de' with 'en')
    • add new defaults for chapters_en )(just copy the entries for 'de' and replace 'de' with 'en')
  • create an index file ("")
    • add metadata at the beginning of the file like this :
      		layout: complete
      		title:	my manual title
      		language: en
    • Use 'complete' to render all chapters into one view with table of contents on the left (there is no other layout at the moment)
    • Any content of the index file will be rendered on the bottom left of the screen (very little space over there)

How to add chapters

  • Find the directory for your language (e.g. /chapters_en)
  • Add a markdown file (.md) to that directory or any subdirectory
  • Add metadata to that file like this:
	title: 		"About us"
	number: 	"1.1"
* You must use a chapter number!
* Chapter number can have a depth of up to four ("w.x.y.z") w, x, y, z can be any numbers.
* You can add empty chapters (only metadata, no contents) to generate extra Headings. (Can be useful if a chapter starts with a subchapter)
* You can also add type: "excursion". Excursions should have a chapter number that may coincide with another chapter. In that case the excursion will be rendered right after the matching chapter.
