This is just an experiment. It might work, it might not.

The aim of the project is to replace in entirity the woefully unloved "Tagging Guide (for OSM Contributors)" at http://www.gravitystorm.co.uk/shine/cycle-info/ with something a bit more user-friendly, while maintaining editorial control and not descending into mayhem. I'm looking at you, wiki.openstreetmap.org :-) . I take inspiration from http://guides.rubyonrails.org/


It's really easy to contribute, and I welcome your proposals!

Quick changes

If you are viewing this on github.com, just find the file you want to change (likely in the _posts folder) and find the button that says "Edit this file". Make your changes, and they'll be submitted for review


The project is based on the jekyll markdown engine. Clone the repository, install jekyll, and run

jekyll --server --auto

for best results. There's a whole load of jekyll that I don't know yet, so feel free to enlighten me.
