Brief usage tutorial

Markup origins of content on your site

Put data-content-origin attribute on top level element wrapping content of some of your site source code on github.

Eg.: <section id="page" data-content-origin=""> Content of </section>

Add a content-script

Its a script which defines a way of applying changes. Code is executed in isolated scope with content variables defined in it - see content-script example - - as you can see, coffee script is also supported, instaedit automatically recognizes the language by postfix - .coffee and .js.

And you should define it as a script

<script type="instaedit/contentscript" src=""></script>

or meta in head

<meta name="instaedit/contentscript" value="">
