This repository contains my open source reading list. I keep track of books by editing the files here and the results are automatically published as a website at http://bamos.github.io/reading-list.
- Plaintext and friendly data format.
- Minimal hosting and deployment overhead.
- Offline editing support.
- Linux and OSX. Windows should also work with Cygwin, but I haven't tried. Please file any issues related to this.
- YAML data.
- GitHub Pages hosts and automatically deploys a 100% client-side website that can also be edited offline. Bower manages 3rd party library dependencies used on the site, stored in bower.json.
Creating Your Reading List: Quick Start
- Fork or copy the contents of this repository into a new GitHub repository.
Make sure the default branch is set to
gh-pagesfor deployment. At this point, you should be able to see my site hosted at.
- Update the data and personalize index.html. Push your changes to GitHub to see them immediately on the new site.
- Replace links to http://bamos.github.io/reading-list with your URL.
Most browsers will not be able to open
from the filesystem because the js loads YAML resources.
One workaround is to use start a simple Python static
web server with
python2 -m SimpleHTTPServer
and access the website with
Updating Bower Dependencies
