How to upload images

Upload image in folder /docs/images/url-of-your-doc

  • If image needs to be localized, insert all of them in one folder
  • Use locale appendix in name of images if it's localized, e.g. image_en.jpg
  • Make sure your image is web optimized and at the same time it looks good

How to insert images

There are two ways for inserting pictures in your documents:

It is recommended to insert pictures with built-in tag <robo-wiki-picture>, however you may also use standard way for Markdown files.

with caption

<robo-wiki-picture link="/docs/community" src="example_image.jpg" caption="EXPLORE ROBONOMICS WIKI" />

or without caption

<robo-wiki-picture link="/docs/community" src="example_image.jpg" />

or simple image

<robo-wiki-picture src="example_image.jpg" />

or simple image with caption

<robo-wiki-picture src="example_image.jpg" caption="EXPLORE ROBONOMICS WIKI" />

image with alt

<robo-wiki-picture src="example_image.jpg" caption="EXPLORE ROBONOMICS WIKI" alt="this is alternative text for image" />

Props for robo-wiki-picture

src (required) - path to the image:

  • if you uploaded your image directly to the /docs/images/ use: url-of-your-doc

  • if you uploaded image in one of the folders than use: folder-name/url-of-your-doc

caption - caption for the image

YouTube videos

You can embed any YouTube video in doc by inserting share link as separate paragraph without any additional quotes or tags, e.g.:


Robonomics WIKI has support for Asciinema. To insert Asciinema, please, follow these instructions:

  • Insert as separate paragraph <Asciinema vid="WCFcx8C6M8e52UKDNei1xZloU"/>, where is vid is ID of specific asciicast

You can get the widget script for a specific asciicast by clicking on β€œEmbed” link on asciicast page. It looks like this: <script src="" id="asciicast-14" async></script>Asciinema docs

      Add new doc

      If you need to add new page in docs of Robonomics WIKI, please, follow these steps:

      1. Find the folder with the locale that matches the language of the article you are adding, e.g. /docs/en/
      2. Create .md file, using in name latin characters and follow common rules for url structure
      3. Edit file as described above
      4. Duplicate file to other locale folders, even if you do not plan to translate them. Do not forget mark in frontmatter not translated pages as translated: false
      5. Add doc in menu:
      • Open file /data/sidebar_docs.yaml
      • Decide where to place your doc
      • If you want to create new section, provide title with locale appendix, using only locales your section is translated
      • Add doc with link. The link must be only one, and must not contain locale characters. Correct is /docs/url-of-your-doc, not correct is /docs/en/url-of-your-doc
      • Use valid YAML for /data/sidebar_docs.yaml and rely on the existing file structure
