wiki / help / adding-a-page Edit this page Edited (0f95996) at 2020-06-05 by Dylan Araps ADDING A PAGE ________________________________________________________________________________ Adding a page to the Wiki and integrating it into the home page/listing pages is rather simple (albeit manual for the time being). This may be automated (to a realistic extent) over time. Copy an existing page or start from the @/page-template.txt and begin writing. When you're ready to submit your page, the following steps must be followed. Requirements ________________________________________________________________________________ 1. Lines must not exceed 80 columns in width. This is a comfortable size for reading while not being too narrow for writing. This is a nice sweet spot. 2. Include references where applicable.  3. Pages must be written in English and without error. If this Wiki would like to one day be known as a high quality resource, we must write to the best of our ability.  4. Do not submit pull requests with spelling mistakes. These will be immediately closed. Do spend a minute spell checking your work prior.  5. One space after each sentence. 6. Use only the 128 ASCII characters.   References work like this. Square brackets and a number in two locations. The build system will automatically link these together (via an anchor).  Fixes to existing pages and suggestions are welcome. If you see anything low-quality, incorrect or in need of fixing, please submit edits.  Exceptions are made for words which only exist in this technological bubble of ours. This is common sense.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASCII Adding a new category: ________________________________________________________________________________ $ cd wiki $ mkdir -p category $ cp help/index.txt category # Rewrite the index to match the new category. $ vi category/index.txt Page Creation ________________________________________________________________________________ Adding a new page: $ cd wiki $ cp help/page-template.txt category/page-name.txt # Start writing your page. $ vi category/page-name.txt # Update the category's index.txt to include the new page. $ vi category/index.txt # Update the Wiki's home page to include the new page. $ vi index.txt ________________________________________________________________________________ Dylan Araps (C) 2019-2020 Linux(R) is the registered trademark of Linus Torvalds in the U.S. and other countries.
