Note: any questions/concerns about contributing to this site can be brought to
nwunder#5730 in DM on Discord. I’ll get back to you ASAP. :)
Hey everyone, welcome to the Bikini Bottom website contributing guide! We appreciate your interest in helping us out! Firstly, I’d like to note that we’ll be handling contributions through nwunder’s dev repository, hosted at dev.bikinibottomdiscord.org for testing purposes.
Make a GitHub account here
nwunder#5730 on Discord, letting me know your GitHub username so I can give you access to the dev repository.
Alternatively, open an issue on the dev repository asking to be added as a collaborator.
Once I’ve added you to the repository, you’ll be able to contribute to our jellymon research project board and make edits to the dev repository.
NOTE: The project board ended up being extremely inconvenient for storing a large amount of information. We’ve set up a wiki in the dev reposotory that’s much better for storing jellymon notes and drafting website pages
I’ve made a jellymon research wiki for the dev repository as a way for us to share our notes in an organized fashion. This will be our central hub for collecting information we’d like to put into the website, and can be edited directly by any collaborators online. This page is much easier to edit than the actual site (which is linked to the code in the repository), so should be used for quick notes and such.
We’ll be beginning the jellymon section of the website by assembling everything we can onto this wiki.
Some things about the project board:
Our current sections:
This is a GitHub repository, after all. We’re all here because we’re interested in working on the Bikini Bottom website in one way or another. I made this fork of the main repository so I’d have a place to give our users access to contribute while keeping things as organized as possible.
Some things about the dev repository:
masterbranch is the one we’ll be pulling to the website from. Please only directly edit this branch for edits to
.mdfiles. This is the one most of you will be working with.
gh-pagesbranch is the one that’s directly hosted at dev.bikinibottomdiscord.org.If you’ve made a big change and would like to see how something would look on the website, one way is to pull your change to this branch, and it’ll make the change there. Please don’t directly make changes to this branch, instead edit the
masterbranch then pull your changes to this branch to test. This branch has a modified CNAME file in order to host the dev site so we’re unable to pull from this branch to any other.
devbranch is the one you should be using for big changes, like new folders/new files, and especially new html/css/js files, if that’s your thing.
/jellymon/battling.mdcorresponds to bikinibottomdiscord.org/jellymon/battling on the website. As such, the
/jellymon/folder will be the one we’re working with the most.
I know learning GitHub can be daunting sometimes, so please, if you need any help learning, don’t be afraid to ask me. I’m happy to help!
Additionally, if anyone has questions/concerns/suggestions for the website, the jellymon research
project board wiki, or the development github repository,
don’t be afraid to send me a DM!
Thanks to everyone who’s expressed interest in contributing to our website! I’m so excited to work with you all!
