Contributing to Lab Interactives Site

If you think you’d like to contribute to Lab Interactives Site as an external developer:

  1. Create a local clone from the repository located here: This will by default have the git-remote name: origin.

  2. Make a fork of to your account on github.

  3. Make a new git-remote referencing your fork. I recommend making the remote name your github user name. For example my username is stepheneb so I would add a remote to my fork like this:

     git remote add stepheneb
