Documents the DevOps Way

How we use GitLab CI for creating our documents

The value-added potential of the processes that we can map GitLab is far from exhausted. For the collaborative creation and versioning of documents, we rely on GitLab and in particular on CI (Continuous Integration) functionalities.

This provides us with a lean and elegant process for creating, checking and automatically providing documents in the current version by several actors.

We write our documents in Markdown. Thanks to its steep learning curve, Markdown is particularly suitable for making it possible for participants from different technical backgrounds to participate in the GitLab Spirit. Further developments take place in the familiar Git manner and are automatically provided as PDF documents by the CI pipeline.

In this way, we remain platform-independent, flexible and transparent with regard to modifications and the up-to-dateness of our documents.
