Pull requests are welcome and appreciated. To contribute to BTCPay Server, first check the contributing guidelines.

If you're beginner, take a look at the step by step guide on how to contribute to BTCPay Server documentation below.

Contributing to Documentation

Build the Documentation Locally

In order to build the website locally, you'll need Node.js >= 12.16 (or basically the latest LTS version). A prerequisite for the setup-deps.sh script is jq.

The setup is straight forward:

# Install dependencies
npm install

# Link external doc repos
./setup-deps.sh

# Serve locally (by default on port 8080)
npm start

Text Highlights

There are three types of text highlights that can be used to display different colored boxes.

A green box displaying a friendly tip:

:::tip
foo
:::

A yellow box with a cautious warning:

:::warning
foo
:::

A red box with a clear danger, you can also add a title foo to any container:

:::danger foo
bar
:::

Embedding YouTube videos

To add a YouTube video with a preview, you can so so by linking to it like this:

[![IMAGE ALT TEXT HERE](https://img.youtube.com/vi/YOUTUBE_VIDEO_ID_HERE/mqdefault.jpg)](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOUTUBE_VIDEO_ID_HERE)

Note that the link item need to be a preview image (either from YouTube or a custom one) to result in an embedded video.

External documentation repos

The build documentation site combines a bunch of docs living in different repositories.

Before the build we check out the other repositories, copy their docs into the right places and link them just as the docs in this repo.

The process for that is defined in the setup-deps.sh script.

External repos can trigger the docs build whenever they change. You can use GitHub's repository_dispatch feature for this, which is exposed via the API:

curl -X POST https://api.github.com/repos/btcpayserver/btcpayserver-doc/dispatches \
  -u "${{ secrets.GH_PAT }}" \
  -H "Accept: application/vnd.github.everest-preview+json" \
  -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  --data '{"event_type": "build_docs"}'

The GH_PAT needs to be a personal access token.

Check for broken links

The GitHub Actions pipeline checks for broken links after deploying the production site. You can also run the link check locally using npm run linkcheck:local. The dev server needs to be running alongside for this to work.
