Updating the website

Updating the BreathingSpace information

screen shot 2018-02-27 at 10 22 09 am

The BreathingSpace chart and text is based on the data in _data/_money.yml file.

To update the chart, edit _data/_money.yml to add a new month’s entry to the top of the list, following the formatting of the existing entries:

- value: 8.46
  date: 29/1/2018
- value: 10.49
  date: 31/12/2017
- value: 10.12
  date: 30/11/2017

Updating the monthly donors records

screen shot 2018-02-27 at 10 21 24 am

The monthly donors information is fed from the data in the files in /_supporters. There is a file for each month, named $sequential_month_number.$month_name.md, e.g. 01.march.md for the first month and 24.february.md for february in Frontyard’s second year.

Each file has a YAML statement. It states the month this file represents, then the items covered. Each item entry states the name of the item (item), its value (value), and the name of the donor who covered it (name):

---
month: February 2018
covered:
  - item: Internets
    value: 65
    name: 
  - item: Rent
    value: 30
    name: 
  - item: 100% renewably powered lights
    value: 50
    name: circle square paper
  - item: 100% renewable computer power
    value: 50
    name: T Malott
  - item: Water
    value: 50
    name: Andrew Fedorovitch
  - item: Fresh food for residents

  - item: Risograph paper and ink

    name: circle square paper
  - item: Special public liability funds

To update an existing month, amend exiting entries or add new entries to the file for that month.

To add a new month’s data, create a new file in the /_supporters directory, with the correct name and YAML formatted entries.
