## A Short History of Git ## As with many great things in life, Git began with a bit of creative destruction and fiery controversy. The Linux kernel is an open source software project of fairly large scope. For most of the lifetime of the Linux kernel maintenance (1991–2002), changes to the software were passed around as patches and archived files. In 2002, the Linux kernel project began using a proprietary DVCS system called BitKeeper. In 2005, the relationship between the community that developed the Linux kernel and the commercial company that developed BitKeeper broke down, and the tool’s free-of-charge status was revoked. This prompted the Linux development community (and in particular Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux) to develop their own tool based on some of the lessons they learned while using BitKeeper. Some of the goals of the new system were as follows: * Speed * Simple design * Strong support for non-linear development (thousands of parallel branches) * Fully distributed * Able to handle large projects like the Linux kernel efficiently (speed and data size) Since its birth in 2005, Git has evolved and matured to be easy to use and yet retain these initial qualities. It's incredibly fast, it's very efficient with large projects, and it has an incredible branching system for non-linear development (See Chapter 3).

Usage in Ruby:
require 'markdown' Markdown.new( 'Servus Wien' ).to_html # => "<p>Servus Wien</p>\n"
The Markdown Engine Wrapper (
markdown) gem lets you use your Ruby markdown library of choice. Example:
$ set MARKDOWN_LIB=kramdown
## Let's use the Redcarpet library lib: redcarpet redcarpet: extensions: - no_intra_emphasis - fenced_code_blocks - tables - strikethrough
markdown gem includes a little command line tool. Try
markdown -h for details.
Note - The markdown command line tool includes a server and little online markdown editor!
markdown serve to start your own web service / HTTP (JSON) API.
Many static site compilers/builders options! Let’s use Jekyll. Example:
--- title: My Page --- ## Page Header Some text here. ## Another Page Header More text here. Some code: 10 PRINT "BASIC ROCKS!" 20 GOTO 10
To build your site (pages) issue:
$ jekyll build
That’s it. More options:
Many presentation builders options! Let’s use Slide Show (S9). Example:
# My Slide Title * Bullet Point One * Bullet Point Two # Another Slide Title Some text here.
To build your presentation issue:
$ slideshow mytalk.markdown
That’s it. More options:
Let’s use Pandoc. Note: It’s Haskell (not Ruby). Example:
Title: My Book Author: Ruby Rubacuori This is my book. # Chapter One Chapter one is over. # Chapter Two Chapter two has just begun.
To build your book issue:
$ pandoc mybook.txt -o mybook.epub
EPUB (short for Electronic PUBlication) is a free and open e-book standard.
Files are zipped up archives with the extension
title_page.html ch01.html ch02.html ch03.html styles.css
Plus some extras (defined in the Open Container Format - OCF):
mimetype # identification as epub - application/epub+zip META-INF/container.xml # contents of the book (in XML) content.opf # .opf - Open Packaging Format (in XML) toc.ncx # .ncs - Navigation Control file for XML (in XML) nav.html
What’s Zen Writing?
Extremely stripped down text editor - leaving you alone with your thoughts and your words - lets you focus on your text.
Adds more “extras” to Markdown. Example:
| Item | Value | | --------- | -----:| | Computer | $1600 | | Phone | $12 | | Pipe | $1 |
<table> <thead> <tr> <th>Item</th> <th style="text-align: right">Value</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <td>Computer</td> <td style="text-align: right">$1600</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Phone</td> <td style="text-align: right">$12</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Pipe</td> <td style="text-align: right">$1</td> </tr> </tbody> </table>
