It’s officially official! I’ve just made public preview available of my open source Docsify-This project, which provides tech-savvy educators and open publishers a quick way to display Markdown files as standalone Web pages without needing to setup your own Docsify site🎉

Give it a go at https://docsify-this.net with your own hosted Markdown files, or join me nerding-out a bit with some examples.Continue Reading
Recently I tweeted about a new experiment to provide people a way to render public Markdown files using Docsify, without needing to setup their own Docsify instance, and I thought I would share them here:
Inspired by @cogdog using Docsify to render multiple project READMEs, made possible by Beau Shaw's original Remote Docsify example, I've just created https://t.co/iZMjgx5GRo where you can use one GitHub Pages site to render remote Markdown files as single Web pages with Docsify👀— Hibbitts Design (@hibbittsdesign) June 29, 2022
Recently I tweeted about the launch of my online CMPT-363 User Interface Design course this summer, and I thought I would share them here:
My #SFU CMPT-363 User Interface Design online course is once again ready to launch (tomorrow!) with the goal of being a useful and enjoyable learning experience for participants🚀 https://t.co/WdYKpszDXL #52WeeksOfCMPT363— Hibbitts Design (@hibbittsdesign) May 9, 2022
Recently I tweeted about creating a new Docsify example project to demonstrate how a single Docsify instance can render Markdown content from multiple sources, and I thought I would share them here:
Inspired by @cogdog's idea of a consolidated ReadMe collection, and wanting a new way to demo how flexible https://t.co/Cj7y22iLmY is, I've built an example project of a single Docsify site rendering Markdown content from multiple sources - any hey, no build process needed😎 pic.twitter.com/z5ZSdKPmek— Hibbitts Design (@hibbittsdesign) April 25, 2022
Recently I tweeted about support of the Docsify Table of Contents Plugin for my Docsify Open Course Starter Kit, and I thought I would share them here:
The February release of https://t.co/Cj7y22iLmY Open Course Starter Kit included an optional Table of Contents for any Docsify page has proved to be a hit with my CMPT-363 students - below is a Docsify site page, standalone page, standalone page + ToC and embedded page with ToC👇🏼 pic.twitter.com/LKznnRSyGO— Hibbitts Design (@hibbittsdesign) March 11, 2022
Recently I tweeted about the official first preview release of my new Docsify Open MultiCourse Starter Kit, and I thought I would share it here:
It's officially almost official! A preview of the https://t.co/Cj7y22iLmY Open MultiCourse Starter Kit is now available. This Docsify starter kit supports multiple courses within a single Docsify site via GitHub Pages.

After a bit of a break this summer I am now preparing for three consecutive terms of CMPT-363 as a Limited Term Lecturer at SFU - aka 52 Weeks of CMPT-363!
While I have been quite happy from a learning perspective with student-generated open book final exams in the previous four offerings of 363, I’ve decided to no longer pursue this approach of assessment as it turned 363 over time into more of a writing course than I (and the students) preferred. To replace the final exam I am adding a weekly visual entry journal entry and an additional individual assignment.
For students not in other Canvas LMS courses a standalone site with Canvas links is available, and for students in other Canvas courses the same course site content is seamlessly embedded into Canvas. This term is the first time I will be using my new Docsify Open Course Starter Kit, which can use GitHub Pages for hosting the site vs. a PHP server as required with my earlier Grav CMS projects.

Curious about my new Docsify Open Course Starter Kit project? Thanks to the folks at ETUG a 10-minute overview of my new Docsify projects for open courses and publishing is available for viewing.
I am looking forward to re-connecting with my new students in September and over the next year, and in the meantime I will try to enjoy the few last weeks of summer!
Recently I tweeted about the official first releases of my two new Docsify Starter Kit projects, and I thought I would share them here:
📢https://t.co/Cj7y22iLmY Open Course Starter Kit v1.0 released. Quickly create & host #Markdown based course sites on GitHub Pages. Seamlessly embed page content in other systems (i.e. #LMS, #MSTeams, etc).

Recently I tweeted about efforts to further align my Grav and Docsify Open Course projects, keeping their unique strengths while sharing core features, and I thought I would share them here:
In the past few weeks a lot of progress has been made to align the key features of my @getgrav Open Course Hub and https://t.co/Cj7y22iLmY projects, as can be seen below with seamlessly embedding content from both projects into the #CanvasLMS👇🏼 January 4, 2021
