The Codeless Code

This repository contains all the content of The Codeless Code (i.e. the translations and the original cases by Qi), an inspiring and beautiful collection of “fables and kōans for the software engineer”.

Adding a translation

If you want to add your translation:

  1. Fork the repo.
  2. Create a directory named after your language code and translator name (e.g. en-qi).
  3. Add a branch for the case(s) you want to translate (e.g. case-42 or cases-1-10).
  4. Add your translations.
  5. Push the changes.
  6. File a Pull Request.

Translation format

You can find information about the format to follow here.

Only keep the Number header, translate the Title, and possibly Tagline and Illus.X.title for the images' alt tags. Add Lang with the locale and Translator with your translator nickname. All other headers will be ignored and taken from the original English version.


Many thanks to Qi for this ingenious work of art and to all the translators for their hard work.
