Are you one of our amazing GTN Contributors? Were you ever bothered by how slow it was to build the site locally? This is now fixed completely! We have replaced one of the slowest steps of the GTN’s build process and rewritten it ourselves to be more performant.

Additionally this means when you make contributions to the GTN you no longer need to wait 20 minutes to have all of the links checked in your contribution before it can be merged, as that step now completes in under 1 minute!

Happy contributing!

New Feature: Persistent URLs (PURLs) / Shortlinks

19 April 2023   new feature gtn

The GTN has added persistent URL identifiers for our tutorials, slides, and FAQs. Using the service, we have reserved GTN namespace for our persistent URLs. These work similarly to DOIs in that they will always point to a specific training material.

New Feature: GTN Rdoc

19 April 2023   new feature gtn

The internal functions of the GTN have, in the past, not been very well documented. Now we have started the process of fully documenting the functions and modules available to GTN developers.
