πŸ›  Technologies Used

  • HonKit. A command line tool to help build documentation.
  • Node.js and npm. A programming language and package manager.
  • GitHub Actions. A script-running service that deploys the handbook website for us in the cloud.

πŸ’» Local Development

To submit changes, add content, and make improvements to this handbook you can use GitHub:

To edit locally, you will have to install HonKit, and Node.js (v4.0.0 or above) on your system.

It is easiest to install honkit with npm, the Node.js package manager. From your terminal, run the following command:

$ npm install honkit --save-dev

You can preview any changes you make by running a local HonKit server:

$ npx honkit serve

After starting the server, visit http://localhost:4000 (or the address indicated by the honkit serve command) in a web browser.

To test that all links works, you may run html-proofer via:

bundle install

# Run with defaults (faster)
make check

# Run slower (to avoid failing links from servers throttling you)
make check-cautious

Once you have installed the above tools, these are the steps required to make edits to existing Handbook pages:

  1. Check that your local version of the main (master) branch is up to date. If not, you should pull recent changes from GitHub. On the command line you'll have to first use git checkout master and then git pull.
  2. Create a new branch: select New branch (if using GitHub Desktop) and give it a title of whatever you're planning to work on e.g., roles-page-update. On the command line you can use git checkout -b your-branch-name.
  3. Make your edits or changes using a text editor
  4. If you're using the command line, you'll have to stage changes you want to commit. You can use git add file-name to do that.
  5. Commit the change and write a summary message for that commit. If using the command line, you can use `git commit -m "your summary message"
  6. Push the changes upstream to GitHub. With the command line you can use git push
  7. Make a pull request to the master branch from your branch
  8. Assign a co-worker to review the changes
  9. Co-worker reviews and then accepts the pull request, and the update is made

πŸš€ Deployment

The handbook is automatically built and deployed using GitHub Actions after a Pull Request is merged into master on GitHub.

See: .github/workflows/deploy-github-pages.yml

Pull requests commits are lint-checked for concerns before merging.

See: .github/workflows/test-pull-request.yml
