Today I Learned
A month ago I saw an article on Hacker News about someone who created a github repo, in which they recorded any interesting and resuable solutions to the problems they encountered.
I started doing the same thing, storing little markdown files inside my 'utils' repo (the private repository where I keep copies of all the little tools I use on every machine, plus my powershell profile etc.)
Pretty quickly I had 100 such files, and I looked into what I could do with this growing knowledge base. I found out about 'gitbook' which is a way of rapidly turning a github repo full of little markdown files into a genuine book.
So here's the product... the free book I wrote without trying to write a book...
(and here's the git repo, error corrections welcome!)
Inside that book, I've written a short article on "getting started with gitbook" so you can do the same thing, including details on how to use gitbook locally (for example for documentation inside the enterprise!)Next → ← Previous
