Community Resource for Archivists and Librarians Scripting
Our community resource is intended to provide helpful one-liners and script code specifically drawn from real-life examples in archives and libraries. Take these, use them in your workflows, change them up, contribute back! Remember: you have to crawl before you walk. (See what we did there with the acronym?)
This is just the beginning! Check it out on the web here: http://dd388.github.io/crals/
We plan to add documentation on how to add your own comments soon, so if you have an idea for a command/explanation you'd like to contribute and wading into the index.html is not for you, feel free to add it as an Issue for now.
Created by Jarrett Drake and Dianne Dietrich.
How do I contribute?
You are welcome to edit the codebase yourself, or just supply the information and ask it to be added to the site.
To contribute to this project directly (and more quickly), clone this repository and create a new branch (
git checkout -b your-branch-name) and add or modify a new block in
index.html. Then submit a pull request and the maintainers will review and integrate your code. There is a commented-out sample block available at the bottom of
index.html that can be as a guideline for your command.
Make a request
If you are having trouble with coding it yourself or with github, feel free to submit an issue with the kind of command you would like to see added to the site.
If you want to help but don't have a new script to add, you can help us by testing out the scripts available, by refining or clarifying the documentation, or creating an issue for anything that sounds confusing and requires clarification.
