FIRSTwiki Design

FIRSTwiki is not a traditional wiki, instead we have elected to build it around github pages. As github pages isn’t a perfect fit for a wiki, there are some design considerations that were made as FIRSTwiki has been put together. This page intends to explain some of this.

FIRSTwiki is not a single git repository, instead it is spread out across multiple repositories:

The reason for this division is that jekyll can take a really long time to parse and generate content, so they’re split at natural division points so that it doesn’t take as long to build the content.

In the future as the amount of content gets larger, we may need to split it into even more repositories.
