Notebook Archiving & Data Management
The lab notebook is written and maintained in plain text (UTF-8) using markdown. All files are kept in a version managed repository system using git, which provides unique SHA hashes to protect against corruption. Synchronized backups of the git repository are maintained on both local and remote servers to protect against hardware failures, as well as on the public international software repository, GitHub github.com/cboettig. Version history preserves a time-line of changes and protects against user error file loss. Archival copies of notebook entries shall be published annually to figshare
Building from source
This site is built automatically using Docker and Drone CI, as described in this post. This site repository also now includes a Dockerfile for generating a portable docker container to generate the site. A separate Dockerfile for building boostrap 3.1.1 CSS can be found in the
NOTE: This site is developed for my own needs and may be difficult to adapt directly to another purpose. If you are new to Jekyll, consider starting with a Jekyll theme such as Poole.
