Contribute

Please read this article patiently to get to know how to contribute articles to Pitayan.com.

Know the system

The Pitayan is completely based on a Framework Gridsome for static site. Which means, our articles align with markdown syntax and the article file name ends with an extension of .md. In this way, HTML tags and css become the power of the enhancement.

The repository of the blog is placed on Github/pitayan (currently private). So if an article needs to be published, a commit with that specific article file will be pushed to Github server. Later the CI/CD will handle the build and deployment. Soon the article will become visible on the Pitayan web page.
