Table of contents
You can leave feedback to the guide in numerous ways:
- via the email feedback buttons and links in the guide (Please join our Content Design in Government Google Group to give feedback)
- via GitHub issues.
ToDo: add useful information here :)
To mark-up your content, write in Markdown. We use the 'kramdown' (default) markdown parser, which provides a couple of extra features. For a reference on what's possible see the kramdown quick reference.
This guide is built with Jekyll.
You would only need to do the following if you are a developer. If you are a content editor you can access and editing content for the guide directly via GitHub. However, it can be nice having the guide locally to work and preview --- feel free to ask a developer if you would like to set up a local instance of the guide.
We also pull in the 1.x version of the UI-Kit as a submodule.
We will likely change this, and instead package up everything needed to produce a new guide scaffold as a Ruby gem for Jekyll to consume.
git clone email@example.com:govau/content-guide.git cd content-guide git submodule init git submodule update gem install bundler bundle install
bundle exec jekyll serve
