Contribution guidelines #

The article source files reside in the /content directory in the wiki repository.

You can make changes to articles in various ways:

Pull requests #

In order to submit a pull request:

Direct edits #

Under every article, there is an Edit this article anchor which redirects you straight to the GitHub editor.

Github issues #

If neither of the above options work for you, we’d appreciate if you created a new issue in the main wiki repository where you can explain the improvement, issue, or any other comment you have regarding the current version of the wiki.

Local deployment #

The wiki is built using the Hugo framework.

You can run a local environment by following these steps:

  1. Install the Hugo Framework, extended version > 0.68.
  2. Clone this repo.
  3. Run hugo server --minify in the root directory.
  4. Open your browser and go to http://localhost:1313 (or as indicated by the Hugo output).

Wiki theme #

We use the Hugo Book Theme with custom modifications.

Custom hint shortcode #

We modified the default Hints used by the theme; the modified boxes are listed below:


This is an Info box for the {{< hint info >}} shortcode.


This is a Note box for the {{< hint note >}} shortcode.


This is an Example box for the {{< hint example >}} shortcode.


This is a Tip box for the {{< hint tip >}} shortcode.


This is an Important box for the {{< hint important >}} shortcode.


This is a Warning box for the {{< hint warning >}} shortcode.

Original style #

The original hint style can be used by adding a third parameter, noTitle, to the shortcode, e.g.:

{{< hint example noTitle >}}
