Adding a Project or Resource

First time?

Setup a Github account if you don’t have one. Make sure your email is verified.


To make a link, you’re going to make a really small file on github that we’ll generate for you. All you have to do is fill in the boxes below and hit the button.

1) Fill the form below:


Click Me!

2.5) By creating a link, you agree to the rules outlined here -> [rules]

3) Now hit all the green buttons to make a pull request.

Screenshots: Fork Repository* -> Propose New File -> Create pull request -> Create pull request

And you’re done! You’ll have to wait a sec for us to approve the pull request, but feel free to ping me at richard@tufts.io

* Only happens the first time


Questions

  1. (Must have a Github account)
  2. Go to the posts folder
  3. Find your post, which is in the format YYYY-MM-DD-<yoururl>.markdown
  4. Hit the pencil / edit button
  5. Fork, change, pull request (same as creating a new link above)

Why Github?

  1. We don’t want to maintain a server, so we’re basically using Github for authentication
  2. You can edit a link with another pull request
  3. Most people have github accounts, so they won’t have to create another account on another website
  4. Encourages people to make a github account and get some commits under their belt
  5. Interface with tufts.io github page
  6. tufts.io admins don’t have to learn a new interface
  7. Jekyll, the service we’re using to serve static webpages, works amazingly well with Github and is crazy fast
