A practical feature is the ability to go directly from a page in the documentation and make changes on GitHub. Doing so requires the linked repository to have the repository url defined in its base
To enable support for “Edit on Github” button on a page, the top level
_index.md in that repositories
Documentation-folder needs to have a reference to the repository in the front matter.
An example of front-matter with repository set:
--- ... ... repository: https://github.com/dolittle/Documentation ---
All sub-articles will use this repository as the base for the links generated to edit files on GitHub.
If there isn’t a
repository front matter defined no edit-button will be shown.
