Tandem 2.0

This repository seeks to build on the lessons learned from Horoscope. As such, its goal is to continually, incrementally, and iteratively improve the business so we can increasingly focus on the things that matter most while maximizing our flow.

This means that someone should be able to come here with an idea or suggestion and...

  1. Put it through a standardized vetting, prioritization and refinement process
  2. End up with small, actionable and connected tasks that can be advanced by a team slowly and methodically over some time frame
  3. Make contributions into a predefined and obvious structure
  4. Have their contributions automatically deployed to the places where they have the most impact
  5. Improve Tandem by removing repetition, variables and confusion from our work

Writing Blog Posts

tl;dr: lando tandem-blog:generate && lando show:containers

All blog posts are markdown files with front matter for SEO. You can use the command lando tandem-blog:generate to scaffold out a blog post template for you. The command prompts for the relevent information and creates the markdown file in the site/blog directory for you. Here is an example run of the command:

gff ~/code/tandem/tandem 
(tandem-blog-generate) └─ ∴ lando tandem-blog:generate
? Post title? How to Drupal Real Good
? Post summary? From starting your Drupal dev to advanced migrations.
? Written by? John Ouellet
? Choose your location: Sarasota
? Tags? John Ouellet, User Experience., Development.

You can then open the file in your favorite text editor and write your post.

In the course of writing your post you may want to call attention to certain pieces of information. The Tandem Blog uses vuepress containers to achieve these callouts. You can get a list of them with the command lando show:containers. This command will list the available containers/callouts and when you select one give you the copy and pasteable syntax to drop into your blog post. Here is an example run:

gff ~/code/tandem/tandem 
(tandem-blog-generate) └─ ∴ lando show:containers
? Choose a container danger
::: danger <optional title>
content for the danger container

Happy blogging!
