Build Status

(uses s3_website and Travis for CI deployment).

How to contribute

For now here is a simple formula:

  1. Fork the repository at Github
  2. Do awesomeness!
  3. Send a pull request to biojs/edu
  4. Go back to step 2 and stay there as long as you want.
  5. If we merge two or three pull requests, you get commit access. BAM.

Contributor list

Don't be shy - add yourself to the contributors list of an article. The names are sorted alphabetically.

How to run

Jekyll is awesome.

bundle exec jekyll serve -w

(runs jekyll locally in the server mode + watching for changes)

Install jekyll.

Installing dependencies

We use bundler (virtualenv for ruby).

gem install bundler
bundle install # in your edu root folder

You can then install all dependencies with

bundle install --path vendor/bundle

Jekyll layouts

  • default: the root layout (all layouts inherit from this)
  • series_item: layout used to generate a page within a series

Special blocks: alert

Display alerts to the user

{% alert warn %}
Do you like BioJS?
{% endalert %}
```

Available types include at the moment:

* `warn`: orange notification - use this for typical errors
* `danger`: red notification - deadly errors
* `info`: blue notification - some informative messages
* `ok`: green notification - positive messages (e.g. end of a tutorial)


Special blocks: hlblock
--------------

Can be used to emphasize content.

{% hlblock question %} Do you like BioJS? {% endhlblock %}


Available types include at the moment:

* `info`: additional info and references
* `help`: tips, help, ...
* `task`: use this to assign tasks to your students
* `questions`: ask your readers questions
* `check`: checkpoint & verification
* `stop`: use this before you show a solution
* `raise`: (currently not used)

Special blocks: code
------------------------

We use `kramdown`, there you should use `~~~` to begin and mark a code block.
To enforce a language or make it collapsible (e.g. for solutions) you can use the `code` block.

{% code javascript collapsible=true %} console.log("You can put this code block anywhere in your tutorial"); {% endcode %}


Add your own series
--------------------

It is super simple:

* add it to the `_config.yml`
* create a new folder in `series` (the name has to be identical with the `key` of your series in the `_config.yml`)
* add new pages to your series folder (don't forget to set your series in the header)
