About the Code Base
This resource is a Jekyll website.
Here’s how content is organised on the website:
Files for pages available in the menu bar at the top of the website are available in the root folder i.e.
All associated styling that makes pages in this resource readable and aesthetically pleasing can be found in the css folder.
YAML files are a human-readable way to feed data into our website.
- _config.yml holds information about navigation settings.
Be careful about spacing when working with YAML files. When in doubt / experiencing errors, use a linter service like YAMLlint to validate your additions.
All image files are in the img folder.
