OK, I’m totally a noob at this, but WOW I love this one feature I just started using.
It allows you to make a webpage of the README.md in your root (I think you can specify any other path as well, I just haven’t). You can then embed that in your lms (I use canvas) assignment. No need to retype anything. HOT_DIGGITY_DOG lol
But Bianca, how do I perform this wizardry?
I’m so glad you asked…
For your assignment repository template, you activate GitHub Pages. That’s it. It’s in the settings of your repo. This works even if your repo is private. It doesn’t make anything else public in your repo. It simply displays your README. Why am I so thrilled? I’m not sure. It’s cool though.
Stick an iframe in your lms assignment, and you’re done.
Here’s an example
In the iframe in my lms, I put an anchor at the end of my href #objectives to my first header, so the blue text doesn’t show at first.
Check it out! This is a private repository, you can’t access it’s contents. It’s just the README.md.
