Create a blog post
If you have an interesting, fun, or practical idea that you want to share with the world, you can write a blog post about it!
Blog posts don’t have to follow strict writing rules or styles. They are a good place for you to have fun talking about Tekton.
This is how:
Set up a local version of the website
Clone the repository to your computer:
git clone https://github.com/<your-git-username>/website.git
Install Docker Compose, if it’s not already installed on your computer.
Change directory to the repository root and run the website server:
cd website docker-compose up
And wait for the confirmation message to pop up:
┌─────────────────────────────────────────────────┐ │ │ │ ◈ Server now ready on http://localhost:8888 │ │ │ └─────────────────────────────────────────────────┘
Keep the server running while you write your post. Press Ctrl + C to stop it.
Open your browser and go to
Draft your blog post
Create a folder under
content/en/blog/<year>/with a descriptive name. Lower case, use dashes to separate words.
Inside the newly created folder, create a file and add a front matter with the following format:
--- title: Title likTitle: Title date: <date, for example 2022-10-26> author: "Author name" description: > A heading sentence about your post ---
Save the file as
index.md. As soon as you save it a new blog entry is now visible on your browser.
Below the front matter, write to your heart’s content. Every time you save, the server automatically builds the page and shows the changes.
If you need some inspiration, you can find examples on the website repository.
Open a PR for review
After you complete your blog post, open a Pull Request and wait for it to be reviewed.
Your blog post is now public and we are all excited to read it. Congratulations!
