FRC LabVIEW Tutorials - Writing/Contributing
First, let me (mshafer1 - site Curator) say “Thank you.” for being willing to share your knowledge with the rest of the FRC community.
I am posting this article for new writers to have an easy reference on how to format their pages and submit them.
Creating the markdown
One can use
- Notepad++ or
- Visual Studio Code to create a basic markdown file (Visual Studio Code even has a preview option) or
- Another option is to use an online markdown editor like this free one and download the resulting source (If using this method, please adjust the image and file links before submitting - see section below.)
- Please put a written by [Team Number] with a logo or something on the bottom.
- Header 1 and 2 are used in the setup for the page, so use Header 3 and smaller for section labels within the document.
- Don’t worry about the exact path to the css file or the menu or other header items - when I move build it with jekyll, the template will take care of those things.
- To keep architecture consistent, please put any and all images in a folder named images next to your markdown file (i.e. paths should look like src=”images/example.jpeg”), and downloadable files should be linked with href=”files/example.vi” (which means that any attached vi’s and the like should be put in a folder named files next to the markdown file). You will need to make sure to include these files when submitting.
Submitting for Review,
- Option1 - email
You can email me your draft at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once I have what I need to format your page, I will post it for peer review to the admin group.
- Option2 - Github Pull request
Now that the site is hosted on Github, you can fork the repo (Github Repo link), make your changes, and post a pull request to have your changes merged into the master branch (this will start the peer-review process).
