What should I know to contribute?

First of all, you should know about Org Mode. If you know about the Markdown syntax, It will be easier. Or not, also easy to use and if you will be accustomed, you maybe love it.

It is builtin mode of Emacs, but it isn’t that means only Emacs users can be use it. You can use with your favorite editor, evenif text editor or github file editor.

Here is tutorial for Org Mode. Don’t be afraid, I think, It might be the editor what you look for.

Contributing with your native language

You shouldn’t have to use only English. It’s up to you. In fact, we need more contribution of your native language.

This project deploys the contents automatically splited by languages. Only contributing one file, It will be split 5 files with English, Spanish, Korean, Chinese and Japanese(currently support).

And here is the distributed contents currently working.

You want to new language? It’s a piece of cake. Just add lang code with newline in the supportLanguages file.

You can add your language simply using “#+LANG_XX:” keyword. Also section type, block type or emphasis type are currently supported. Here is detail usage of the multilingual keywords on here.

Writing document

All of documents sections are standardized depending on STANDARD template. Only the section which exists in the standard file, should be used for keeping the unity. And some sections have static form for more clearfy the meaning. (eg. Syntax - only use the code block to be shown quick usage)
