Editing this site

Home page

The home page text content can be found in pages/

News feed

The news feed content can be found in the _posts folder. It's best to copy an existing item and change the date/title.

It's important to note that the date appears in both the file name and the date front-matter property.

You may add authorship details to a post using the and author.url front-matter properties. Both are optional. The rule of thumb is that generic posts (like version releases/launches etc) should have no author, but more opinion or analysis posts should.

Tutorials page

The tutorials page text content can be found in pages/ The actual tutorial information is in _data/tutorials.yml; there are instructions at the top of this file.

Contributor guides

The contributor guides live in the contributing folder, these pages are Markdown files. Edit the others at will, but the Code of Conduct should not be edited – we use the Contributor Covenant without modifications.

Contact page

The contact page text content can be found in pages/ To add your contact details to this page, edit _data/team.yml; there are instructions at the top of this file.


Every page on this site is tested with Pa11y on CI. Pull requests will fail the build if they introduce accessibility errors. You can run Pa11y against a site that's running locally with:
