Creating / Translating Howto's

The process of creating or translating howtos is not difficult and requires only a bit of practice to learn.

The first thing to do is cloning the repository, this means making a local copy of the remote files. All the work will be done on this copy.

Cloning the repository

A git repository is a project folder containing the files created or to be translated and the detailed track history of those changes.

To clone the repository, open a terminal in the directory you would like to clone the repository to. Once there you'll use the git clone command, an instruction to clone a repository by typing its address. In our case it would be:

git clone https://git.disroot.org/Disroot/howto

Once the repository has been copied to your hard drive you'll see a howto directory containing all the files of the project. It can be later moved to any place on your computer.

Creating / Translating instructions

Once you have copied the repository to your machine, you can start creating, editing and/or translating by following the steps described in these guides:
