About the Docs
All of our docs are open source, written and maintained by members of the Gibbon community.
If you’d like to contribute to the Gibbon docs, you could:
Edit a Page
Look for the Edit Page link in the top right corner of each page. If you spot a typo or would like to help update the docs, feel free to edit the page. Each page has a part at the top inside
---s called front-matter, which contains extra details about the page, and the area below that is the page’s body content.
Create a New Page
An “expand the docs” link can be found at the bottom of each main section page. Type the name of your new content, then click the
Create a New Section
New sections can be added in much the same way as new pages (above). The filename should always be
_index.md, but you can add a title to the section’s front-matter and add descriptive content below that.
Submit an Issue
Feel free to submit an issue through GitHub if you spot anything that can’t be fixed with the options above.
Any time you edit or create a page you’ll be submitting a GitHub Pull Request to notify us of your changes. Once submitted, please allow some time for us to review your PR and merge them into the docs.
Written in Markdown
The docs are written in Markdown, a simple plain-text format that can be authored with any text editor, a number of online tools, or directly in the GitHub editor. You can learn more about the Markdown syntax with a quick online guide or tutorial.
Built with Hugo
This documentation site is built with the awesome open-source static site generator Hugo. The theme is based on DocDock, a fork of the Learn theme, and has been customized for Gibbon.
Deploys with Netlify
Each time a change is made to the Gibbon Docs repository on GitHub the whole site is automatically generated and deployed via the amazing JAM-stack wizardry of Netlify.
