how to help out

This wiki is just a bunch of markdown files that are compiled into html via pandoc using a makefile i stole from ben of (sorry). If you want, you too can write some wiki pages.

To start off, you’ll need to have pandoc, make and git installed. Once you’ve got all that, you’ll need to fork the repo on tildegit, and clone it to your home directory (or somewhere on your computer):

git clone

Now cd into it, make your changes and commit.

$ cd site/wiki
$ emacs
$ git add
$ git commit -m "h"
[main dda1f89] h
 1 file changed, 5 insertions(+), 4 deletions(-)
$ git push

To see how your changes will look on the actual site, just run make and open up an http server (like the one built into python):

$ make

building xmpp.html
building login.html
building meta.html
building ssh.html
building index.html
building contribute.html
finished updating

$ python3 -m http.server
Serving HTTP on port 8000 ( ...

to clear out the files generated, just do make clean:

$ make clean
removing build artifacts

now just make a pr and it’ll get reviewed by someone (probably me) fairly quickly.
