Contributing to the REST Wiki
The sources for this wiki comes from a Git repository with a bunch of Markdown files. There are many ways to contribute:
- Create an issue describing what you would like to have improved. Create a new issue.
- Edit the content in you local clone and create a pull request Create a pull request.
- Just click "Edit" on any page.
You don't need to do this to contribute, but sometimes it is useful to preview your changes
$ git clone https://github.com/trygvis/rest-wiki $ ./rebuild.sh $ gnome-open ../rest-wiki-html/index.html
If you just want to check the Markdown layout of a single page, it
might be easier to just use tools like
$ markdown index.mdwn > index.html $ gnome-open index.html
If you want to rebuild it with the same theme as used at the published site, clone the theme first:
$ cd .. $ git clone https://github.com/ramseydsilva/ikiwiki-bootstrap-theme $ cd rest-wiki $ ./rebuild.sh
Note that for this to work you need to view the generated site through a HTTP hosted site so that all references to Bootstrap and JQuery are properly resolved.
