Build Status

The worldwidetelescope.org “user” website

The user-facing portion of the AAS WorldWide Telescope (WWT) website:

https://worldwidetelescope.org/home/

This includes the static user-facing pages but not the web client or the API or the Communities component of the web app.

Learn more about WWT here.

Quick Start for the Initiated

This site is written in CommonMark Markdown and processed with Zola. Zola is distributed as a single executable so it is ridiculously easy to install. Once you have Zola all you have to do is run

zola serve

to build the site and serve it locally for testing. The command zola check will check the build and verify that outgoing links are valid. Zola has lots of documentation.

Merges to master will be published automatically using WWT’s continuous deployment infrastructure.

URL structure

The files in this repository drive the following URL paths:

  • /about
  • /assets
  • /connect
  • /download
  • /home
  • /learn
  • /style.css
  • /terms
  • /use

Note that the root path / is handled specially in WWT: users are redirected either to /webclient/ or /home/ depending on a preference cookie.

Routing in the reverse proxy is case-insensitive, as were the URLs in the original app backed, so the generated website provides numerous capitalized aliases to the above too.

Contributing

Contributions are welcome! If you’re new to the project, please see the WWT Contributors’ Guide and the WWT Code of Conduct. We operate with a standard fork-and-pull model.
