I am confused and could use more help.
Each of my students has a repo and I have asked them to do the following as an exercise.
- Create a branch in GIT
- Edit the provided HTML file so it is correct
- Commit the changes
- Push to GitHub
- Create a PR on GitHub with a message stating “Submit project xx”
- Merge into master…and keep working on next assignment.
( I would skip the PR all together if I could figure out how to do that as all I really need is an “official” commit stating that this is the submittal )
Now I want to review their HTML and make sure it validates and looks as expected, etc etc.
It seems that the validation could be automated but based on the incredibly cryptic descriptions it seems like way too much trouble to automate.
On GitHub I can view a particular student’s PR…and comment on specific code if I want, but how do I actually open it in a browser to view the HTML page?
I think I would need to clone each student’s repo onto my local machine, then when I want to grade an exercise, pull from github … and then work locally to look at it.
Is there a better way to review webpages they are creating?
Also, if I find a problem in their HTML, where do I comment on it? Do I have to figure it out locally, then open GitHub and comment on it there?
Any guidance would be appreciated.
