Contributing a Guide

Contributing a Guide

The guides site uses jekyll to power the site and all the documents are written using markdown. To contribute a guide, you just need to follow these simple steps.

  1. Fork the repository on github by clicking on the "Fork" button.
  2. Do a git clone of your fork.
  3. Create a file named YYYY-MM-DD-guide_name.markdown inside the _posts directory of your fork.

4. In this file, you'll need to add some YAML front matter at the top of the file so it looks like this:{% highlight yaml %}

layout: default title: Name of the Guide

permalink: one-word-summary.html

{% endhighlight %} 5. Commit this new guide to your git repo. 6. After you commit, push that to your fork. 7. You can now open a pull request explaining your guide. That's it!

You can follow the structure of our Rails Girls App Tutorial.

Thanks so much for taking the time to help us make Rails Girls awesome.
