About the Wiki
This is a wiki is inspired by the concept of an exobrain as well as longtermism .
It’s built using hugo but it’s source is intended to be easily readable by being completely backed by markdown. As such, hugo syntax that is not supported by common mark (such as shortcodes ) are used sparingly. This means that this wiki could be viewed on Github , or as an mdbook , or with tool in the future that supports markdown.
The code for this wiki lives in a Github repository ( bennetthardwick/website ) and is free to be forked, copied or stolen. At the bottom of each page is an “edit on Github” link in case you want to fix anything up.
This hugo theme has several features which aid the wiki:
- bidirectional linking
- this is in the form of the “Linked references” section that appears at the bottom of the page
- sections with “Nested references” link to their children and their children to the parents
- references are highlighted when jumping
- pre-rendering pages on hover
- this makes navigation feel almost instant, see fast-link-loading
- resolve markdown links
- you can search through the wiki using the above search bar
How To Use
In order to best use this site there’s a few things you should know.
When you link to another page you create a reference to that page. References can be in the form of links which are surrounded by square brackets, or tags which start with the pound symbol. Any other links are external and might take a bit longer to load.
When you reference a page you create a bidirectional link. These links show in the “linked references” section on the page.
Parent pages are special pages that contain other pages - they can essentially be thought of as groups.
A parent page displays it’s children under the “nested references” section.
You can search through the wiki using the search bar at the top of the page.
You can also press
