If you hope to add or make changes on rk-docs, please open an issue first with your proposal in order to discuss the changes.

In your issue, pull request, and any other communications, please remember to treat your fellow contributors with respect! We take our code of conduct seriously.


We did not use automated CD procedure in rk-docs projects like netlify.

As a result, we need to follow traditional way to make changes on github.




git clone --recurse-submodules --depth 1

3.Install dependencies

rk-docs is using hugo to generate web pages, and docsy used as theme.

As a result, we need to install bellow tools for local testing.
