Notes

I've added this repository to make it easier to work with the book, if you feel like it.

Writing a patch should be easy: edit the markdown files under ./input/ and file a pull request; I'll handle the rest.

I didn't include the commits from prior to the release, because writing is a messy and painful process of revisions, deletions and rethinking things.

git shortlog -sn

tells me that I made 205 commits between October 2012 (1st commit was in September) and September 16th 2013 to write this.

Directory structure

The content of the book is in ./input/. To generate the book:

npm install
make build

which generates the output in ./output/.

To rebuild the .epub and .mobi files:

make ebook

You need to install Calibre first for the HTML to epub/mobi conversion.

Thanks

Many many thanks to: logpath, alexras, globalcitizen, graue, frankshearar, roryokane, jpfuentes2, cmeiklejohn, stevenproctor, eos2102 and steveloughran for their help!

Licence

This book is available for free, but what I've written remains mine.

Translations: as long as the result made is available for free (you can have ads) I welcome translations.

Other use: contact me; as long as your intentions are good I'd be happy to figure out something. I'm not looking to make money from the book but I don't want it to be republished without my permission.
