How to write a how-to guide?

Simply fork the runabove/knowledge-base project on our GitHub page. Create a new page under /en/_posts and using markdown to write your how-to guide. Please refer to the metadata in existing guides so that you add adequate metadata at the beginning of your guide. Feel free to create a folder for your images in /images.

Please note that we may not accept your how-to guide if it doesn’t fit our review criteria. Here is a list of some of the main points we’ll take into account:

  • Your guide is written in English.
  • Any prerequisites for carrying out the steps in the guide are listed in your guide’s intro.
  • Any usage you encourage is completely legal and respects good practices and security standards.
  • Content is your own and doesn’t include any copyrighted content (including images). Your proposal should be exclusively published on our website.

Please also keep in mind that we’re mainly interested in how-to guides on open-source tools and integration with popular tier technologies.

Quick start your new tutorial:

Create your tutorial

Fork runabove/knowledge-base repository and get the content on your machine.

git clone

Add a file inside posts directory with this template:

layout: post
title:  "My first tutorial"
categories: Instances
author: your_github_username
lang: en

# Here you can add your tutorial

With markdown syntax.

Test your tutorial

With Docker (recommended)

The easiest way to test how your guide renders on RunAbove website is to build and run the Docker container.

docker build --tag runabove-kb .
docker run --rm -ti -p 4000:4000 runabove-kb

You can now point your browser to http://localhost:4000/kb/ and see how it looks.

Installing Jekyll

To deploy tutorials on runabove, we use a ruby tool called Jekyll. You can find more informations about Jekyll installation inside the official documentation. Get it up and running:

curl -sSL | bash -s stable --ruby=1.9.3 --autolibs=fail
curl | bash
nvm install 0.10
nvm use 0.10
source ~/.bashrc
gem install bundler

Inside root directory of the project, you can run this command to generate the website and see your guide:

bundle exec jekyll build

You website is now inside _site directory.

You can also run this command to have jekyll serve your static pages :

bundle exec jekyll serve

When you’re done, open a pull request for your fork. We'll review it as soon as possible!
