This is The New Hacker's Dictionary (aka the Jargon File), a mirror copy of that hosted by Eric S. Raymond at http://www.catb.org/jargon.
It is mirrored from the master source using HTTrack, which preserves the bytecodes in the pages, unlike wget which converts them to 8-bit and munges them.
What is this repository for?
- I'm keeping the mirrored files from jargon.org as "pristine" as I can, with changes made for my own hosting at milosophical.me/jargon (such as: not putting the full 81MB "old versions" onto the GitHub Pages CDN) done as simple
- Version: 4.4.7 -- I endeavour to keep up with the latest from jargon.org
How do I get set up?
TBA - I want to put my own instructions for hosting at my own site here, which in a nutshell would be: clone, patch, put only the jargon directory into the github pages root, git add, git push.
- Summary of set up
- Database configuration
- How to run tests
- Deployment instructions
