# Adding a guide
Now that you are all set up, it's time to make your first guide. Follow the steps below!
Make sure you activate Secret Toggle!!!
# 1. Start Docs Locally
While technically optional, it's a good idea to get the documentation up and running locally. You can do this either with Lando itself or with
yarn directly if running Lando on Lando is a little too meta for your tastes.
# Using Lando (recommended)
# Go into the lando source directory cd /path/to/lando/source # Get everything installed and launch core services lando.dev start # Launch the docs lando.dev docs # Open the docs open https://docs.lndo.site/guides/lando-info.html
# Using Yarn
# Go into the lando source directory cd /path/to/lando/source # Use yarn to launch the docs yarn dev:docs # Open the docs open http://localhost:8008/guides/lando-info.html
# 2. Create a new branch
# Make sure you are on an updated master git checkout master git pull origin master # Checkout a new branch for your contribution git checkout -b addMyGuide
# 3. Scaffold out a new guide
# Follow and answer the interactive prompts lando.dev guide:generate
Lando will provide some demo content in the guide you create. Check it out!
# 4. Make your guide
Load the guide Lando created for you in your editor of choice and modify it until its good to go.
Note that if you've got the docs site running locally, it will hot reload your guide as you edit it. This should help you see what your content will look like when it's on the actual site.
# 5. Commit, push and PR
# Add content, commit and push git add . git commit -m "Guide on how to do something awesome" git push origin addMyGuide
And then open a pull request (opens new window).
