I follow the folder structure of Pro Git, 2nd Edition and create a starter for book writing with AsciiDoc. You may find the source in the following Github repo:


p.s. The flexbox.website web is written in Pollen. Here is the source. It’s ebook is written in Markua. Before that, I wrote HTML5 games development books in Word with Packt Publishing.
