Opening Reproducible Research (o2r) is a DFG-funded research project by Institute for Geoinformatics (ifgi) and University and Regional Library (ULB), University of Münster, Germany. Building on recent advances in mainstream IT, o2r envisions a new architecture for storing, executing and interacting with the original analysis environment alongside the corresponding research data and manuscript. This architecture evolves around so called Executable Research Compendia (ERC) as the container for both research, review, and archival.
mkdocs to render it locally.
# pip install mkdocs mkdocs-cinder mkdocs serve
Our combination of the
.deploy.sh will run the
mkdocs command on every direct commit or merge on the master branch and deploy the rendered HTML documents to the
gh-pages branch in this repository.
Travis authenticates its push to the
gh-pages branch using a personal access token of the user @o2r-user, who has write access to this repository.
The access token is encrypted in the
.travis.yml using Travis CLI and is specific to this repository.
travis encrypt GH_TOKEN=<token here>
GH_TOKEN is used in the deploy script.
The token generated on the GitHub website should not be stored anywhere, simply generate a new one if needed.
This has some security risks, as described here. To mitigate these risks, the option "Build pull requests" on the Travis configuration page for this repo must be disabled so malicious changes to the Travis configuration file will not be build before maintainer inspection.
