The important documents and links are on the front page of the wiki.

Improving Documentation

If you have a suggestion for the documentation, I would recommend that you take a stab at making the changes to the documentation. Simple changes can often be made without a sophisticated pull release.

For large fixes, please build and test the documentation before submitting the pull-request to be sure you haven't accidentally introduced any layout or formatting issues.


To help get started with creating a new entry, the document-templates folder includes some start files that can be used as templates when creating new documents:

How to Create the HTML and PDF files

The source documentation text files can be found documents directory. The built out files will be placed within a [site] directory.

First, install the documentation tools:

pip3 install mkdocs-material
pip3 install mkdocs-localsearch

Then you can build the html site simply by:

mkdocs build

Building a PDF file as well

You can also build the PDF. First install the tools:

pip3 install mkdocs-with-pdf

There is some further installation, see the following link for more details:

Rename the "mkdocs.yml" file Then rename "mkdocs-pdf.yml" to "mkdocs.yml"

To build is the same as before

mkdocs build

Whitespace Cleanup

Don't mix code or documentation changes with whitespace cleanup! If you are fixing whitespace, include those changes separately from your code changes. If your request is unreadable due to whitespace changes, it will be rejected.

Please submit whitespace cleanups in a separate pull request.

Reorganizing Filesystem / directory tree

Don't mix rearranging the location and names of files with code or documentation changes! If you are rearranging the file system, please include those changes separately from your code changes.

Please submit file system changes in a separate pull request.

Pull Request Process

Please see the pull requests page for the process of submitting your changes to the prooject and incorporating feedback. are happy with your changes first!
