Deployment guide for this handbook

This handbook is built on GitHub as a community effort. To deploy the actual website to, we use a GitHub Action that builds the handbook using Quarto, a document publishing system. The resulting build is then published to GitHub pages. The domain name is then redirected to the GitHub pages deployment.


  1. Source files have the .qmd extension, and use Markdown syntax. They are organized as a table of contents on the _quarto.yml file at the root of the handbook repository.

  2. Whenever changes are made and pushed to the repository on GitHub (either by a Pull Request that is merged, or with a commit to the main branch of that repository), the Quarto Publish workflow is triggered by GitHub Actions.

  3. To see this workflow run and any messages it may have emitted, you can click on the Actions tab on the main repository page on GitHub.
