Growing with the Web


My name is Daniel Imms, I'm a software engineer from Australia. I live in Redmond and work at Microsoft on Visual Studio Code. I use this blog as a platform to learn, revise and teach various software development topics.

GitHub wikis are great for documentating projects due to their ease of use and high visibility. The problem is though that there are only two options for access; full access for everyone or restricted to collaborators only. Unfortunately it’s rarely the case you want the public to have full edit access to the wiki, and restricted prevents external contributions completely. This article describes how I recently got around this to enable contributions to the Visual Studio Code wiki via pull requests.
