Git Ready

There is only one way to get ready for immortality, and that is to love
this life and live it as bravely and faithfully and cheerfully as we can.
~ Henry Van Dyke


This repository hosts the HTML, CSS, images, and posts for gitready.com
Git Ready publishes (was daily, then tri-weekly, and now) weekly tips for those who want to learn more about the VCS or just get started.
The blog as a whole started as a journey to learn more about Git and show others how useful it is. If you find issues with the content, just send qrush a message on GitHub or email him at nick@quaran.to.


This blog is generated with the Jekyll engine.
Simple and easy formatting that sticks to the basics. All static HTML too, so worrying about scalability is non-existent.


If you have ideas about new pages, layouts, or what have you, fork away!
If you want to submit tips, please do so here.


If you are interested in translating posts into another language, great! Here's what to do:

  • Fork the project.
  • Create a branch with the ISO code for your language
  • Translate the front page headers, footers. Check out the other translated sites for an example, such as the german one.
  • Translate as little or as many posts as you so desire.
  • The posts that aren't translated, add this to the YAML front matter (this way, untranslated posts don't show up):

    published: false

  • Submit a pull request to the main repository.

Once that's done, I'll add your language's subdomain and get it published.
