How This Site Is Made
If you’re not familiar with GitHub, they have excellent help pages.
_layouts/*.htmlHTML template files
_includes/*.htmlSnippets of HTML that are included in pages and templates
assets/CSS, JS and image files
_config.ymlConfiguration for Jekyll (the website generator)
en-US/The site’s contents, in US English
meta/Files made to redevelop the site, including a to-do list, sitemap visualisation, and mock up pages for the homepage, other pages and navigation.
meta/TODO.md has a list of TODO items, which was made when the website was in its
initial development phase. In the future, GitHub issues may be used.
Each page is in Markdown format, with a
.md file extension. These files are converted into corresponding
.html files by Jekyll when they start with these lines:
- published: if the page should not be published, set this to
bookpageis the default
- weight: an integer value from 1 to 100 that effects the ordering of the page in the sidebar and homepage lists
- category: the category the page belongs in
- title: the page title used in the title tag and h1 of the page
--- published: true layout: bookpage weight: 60 category: Workflow title: Page Title ---
We have a simple script to make such a page:
This will make a file with the required lines.
