Select your main file

  • Search and select the project you want to publish from before selecting Files.
  • The file you wish to publish must be the main file. If you named a file Read Me or Main it will automatically be selected, otherwise, you can manually do this. Click Main file from the action menu of your chosen file.

The main file is effectively the home page for your project. Looking ahead, when someone visits your project, you want them to view this document.

Create a snapshot

You've selected your main file and are ready to take a snapshot.

A snapshot takes a copy of all the files within your project at that particular time. It's effectively creating a saved version. When you take a snapshot it converts your main file to a HTML with a dedicated domain on the Stencila hub ie. youraccountname/projectname.stencila.io. Overtime you may end up taking several snapshots and they will be numbered sequentially.

Congratulations 👏 you’ve just converted your source to an editable manuscript and can preview your document straight away 🤖
