Guidelines For Writing a Blog Post

1. Your blog post should have a Header

The header of your blog post should have a title, author and image.

This is illustrated in the example below:

title: "'Score Your Face Photo' a ML&Wechaty practice"
author: your_github_username
image: your_teaser_image_path
<One line abstract for your blog post>

<Your beautiful blog post contents...>

2. Writing Style

  • You should keep all filenames and URLs as lowercase. Use - character between words instead of space when creating a new file or directory. e.g. 2017-10-06-wechat-pc-impactor instead of 2017-10-06-WeChat PC Impactor. No Chinese should be used in any filename.
  • Find a good image for the blog to make it more beautiful.
  • You should embed photos and videos before publishing, save all external files to the /jekyll/assets/${YEAR}/$MONTH-your-blog-slug/ directory.

3. Do Not Commit Unrelated Files

Please do not commit unrelated files. It will keep things tidy and make it easier to review your PR.

4. How To Add Videos and PDFs To Your Blog Post
