This documentation uses Markdown, so you can edit it in a normal text editor. Also have a look at the common extensions and plugins used to make the documentation a rich experience.

Adding Pages

When adding pages, they may not automatically show up in the navigation. If that is the case you may want to add them to a file in the directory containing the file, or any of its parents. This directory must be referenced by another file, or live in one of the top-level sections (the ones visible in the header bar). In them, the navigation can be defined like this:

- [Frob](
- [Baz](
- Borgs
    - [Bar](borgs/
    - [Foo](borgs/
- [More Borgs](more-borgs/
    - [Bar](more-borgs/
    - [Foo](more-borgs/

This decentralized navigation definition in Markdown files is made possible through the mkdocs-literate-nav plugin.

A directory can be included as subsection too:

- [Some Directory](some-directory/)
This will include all files inside this directory under a "Some Directory" subsection. Wildcard characters (*) can be used to include any remaining files. Prefer including whole directories and wildcard characters over explicit navigation entries, since new files will automatically show up this way.

Adding Images

Simply place images in the directory of the Markdown file(s) using them. This way images can be referenced there by name only, rather than an actual relative path, and they are as close as possible to the content using them.

In Markdown you can use the usual syntax to emplace images. One difference is that images will be centered by default for convenience.


To add a caption to the image, fill in the alt text as follows:

![Caption goes here](my-image-file.png)

Left or right align:

![This is the alt text](my-image-file.png){ align=left }

Change width:

![This is the alt text](my-image-file.png){ style="width:300px;" }

For side-by-side images use a table:


Adding Video

To add a video:

<video src="test.mp4" width="600" controls></video>

To add a caption to a video:

<video src="test.mp4" controls></video>
<figcaption>Caption goes here</figcaption>
