QuickfixΒΆ

For really quick fixes:

  1. Browse the documentation source code directly on the GitHub website:

  2. Navigate to the file you wish to change and click the edit icon

    _images/github_edit1.png

    GitHub Preview of style.rst page

  3. Use the editor to modify the file

    _images/github_edit1.png

    GitHub Editor for style.rst page

  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page, provide a commit comment and submit.

  5. GitHub will:

    • Create a fork and submit a pull request on your behalf; or
    • Immediately make the change for those with commit access

Warning

This technique is great for fixing small typos - but has the danger of introducing formatting mistakes preventing the documentation from being generated.

To make extensive changes see Workflow.
