DevFreeBooks

This is the repository of the site devfreebooks.github.io to submit ebook links.

How to add books

Before start it: all books you add must be freeware and for web developers

Via Google docs

You can submit a book via Google Docs Form.

Via Pull Request

First of all you need to fork this repository.

With this project in your hands, edit the /public/_categories/[category-name].json and add your books respecting these parameters:

"index": {
  "name": "category-name",
  "subtitle": "Category's name",
  "tags": ["category's tags"], // "used in the filters: 'framework', 'language', 'conceptual', 'frontend', 'mobile'"
  "about": "Category's description",
  "site": "url of the official category site",
  "image": "category-image.jpg", // Category image is required
  "books": [
    {
      "title": "Book title",
      "description": "Book description",
      "author": "Author name or Publisher name",
      "pages": 100, // Number of pages
      "year": 2014, // Publish year
      "lang": "EN", // book language. Ex.: EN, PT-BR, ES
      "url": "book's url to download",
      "added_at": "20161112" // Current date you added this book in format YYYYMMDD
    }
  ]
},

Obs.: All image must be an jpeg/jpg with 350x195 size. If you don't add an books.image attribute the default category image will replace it.

Look this example (public/_categories/nodejs.json):

{
  "index": {
    "name": "nodejs",
    "subtitle": "Node.js",
    "tags": ["language", "framework"],
    "about": "Node.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.",
    "site": "http://nodejs.org",
    "image": "nodejs.png",
    "books": [
      {
        "title": "Node.js Succinctly",
        "description": "Learn the basics of Node.js: non-blocking I/O, the event loop, modules, and the Node.js runtime environment. From there, dive into building practical solutions that interact with filesystems and streams, access databases, handle web server message queuing, and more.",
        "author": "Emanuele DelBono",
        "pages": 76,
        "year": 2016,
        "lang": "EN",
        "added_at": "20161112",
        "url": "https://www.syncfusion.com/resources/techportal/details/ebooks/nodejs"
      }
    ]
  }
}
