We’ve all been there. You google how to do some specific task in your language and framework of choice. You find a detailed tutorial that is exactly what you were looking for. Then the heartbreaker, it’s a couple of years old, the technologies have changed, the dependencies are outdated. I can’t stand it when that happens, so if you see anything go out of date or any errors, I welcome anyone to contribute by submitting a pull request. Here is the basic workflow of keeping these posts updated.
- You find some error or technology that has changed.
- Go to https://github.com/BrendonPierson/brendonpierson.github.io.git and fork the repository
- Make a branch on your repository
git branch whatEverYouWantToNameTheNewFeatureOrChange
- To run the blog locally you will need to have all of the dependencies of jekyll installed, then from the project folder run
jekyll serveand direct your browser to
- Make changes. Commit your changes and submit a pull request to https://github.com/BrendonPierson/brendonpierson.github.io.git
- I will review and merge in your changes. Once they are merged, the website will be updated immediately.
If you aren’t comfortable with git/GitHub you can still report any issues and I’ll take a look.
- Go to https://github.com/BrendonPierson/brendonpierson.github.io/issues (you will need to be logged in to GitHub)
- Click create new issue then be as descriptive as possible when describing the problem.
- I will try and fix the problem and you will be notified when the issue is closed.
