I’ve ported a couple of intro pages and the current project week page from Slicer wiki to GitHub to show how we could use GitHub for project week page hosting:
Published website (using default blank theme): https://na-mic.github.io/ProjectWeek/
Example project page: https://na-mic.github.io/ProjectWeek/PW27_2018_Boston/Projects/SlicerVR/
Link for editing/uploading pages: https://github.com/NA-MIC/ProjectWeek
Editable project template: https://github.com/NA-MIC/ProjectWeek/blob/master/PW27_2018_Boston/Projects/Template/README.md
Main advantages of GitHub:
- Full offline access. Entire wiki can be downloaded and viewed/edited on a laptop, without network access.
- Developer familiarity. All developers have GitHub account and familiar with how to upload and edit files.
- Uses Markdown, a very commonly used markup style (used for in the Slicer forum, GitHub, Slack, etc). MediaWiki markup is only used on MediaWiki sites.
Should we start using GitHub for hosting projects pages for this project week?
