The pmem project in GitHub has been created as an open source project focused on persistent memory programming. Everything on this web site and the associated GitHub repositories is open source under the “three-clause” BSD license.
The team’s initial focus is the Linux NVM Library which will provide useful APIs for memory allocation, transactions, etc. built on top of the NVM programming model.
This site includes a pmem blog based on Jekyll so over time we can write up our experiences working with persistent memory programming. There are many ways to get involved and we welcome your contributions!
Since we will surely keep our focus on persistent memory and immediately forget the steps taken to create this site, here’s a quick summary for reference. First, any GitHub user or project area can have GitHub Pages associated with them with almost no effort. We simply created a repository named pmem.github.io to hold the pages. GitHub pages use Jekyll automatically, but it is convenient to install it locally for previewing content before pushing changes to the repo. On the Debian-based distro known as CrunchBang, these steps did the trick:
After creating the appropriate Jekyll files in the local copy of the repo, we used this command:
This watches for changes, re-generating
the web pages as necessary, and provides the content for preview
