# Include docs from other repositories

One of the very useful features of the MkDocs-MagicSpace - is its abilty to include .md files from many git repositories (public and private). This helps you to create easily a single unified documentation website, which includes doc files from the source-code repositories.

## Add another repository to the project

1. Open terminal of the MkDocs-MagicSpace, and clone the repository to /home/project
git clone https://github.com/bluxmit/alnoda-workspaces.git /home/project/alnoda-workspaces

1. In the docs folder of your mkdocs project, create symlink to the cloned repo folder. Assuming your mkdocs project has path /home/project/my-docs
ln -s /home/project/alnoda-workspaces /home/project/my-docs/docs/alnoda-workspaces


## Include Markdown files from another repository

Now you can add .md files from the GitHub repo as if they were in your mkdocs project. Simply add entry to the mkdocs.yml to include any markdown file from the repository

mkdocs.yml

# ===========================================================
# ===========================================================

nav:
- My Project: myproject.md


Warning

The path to the .md file that we include in the file mkdocs.yml is relative to the docs subfolder, which is in your Mkdocs project directory

Voila! the Markdown file from another Git repository is included in your documentation website

## Include parts of the Markdown files

Let's create a page in our doc website, and this page will include only part of the save README.md file from the previous section.

First, create mew empty file part-of-the-file.md (in the docs subfolder of the Mkdocs project), and add reference to the mkdocs.yml

mkdocs.yml

# ===========================================================
# ===========================================================

nav:
- My Project: myproject.md
- Part of the file: part-of-the-file.md


Open file part-of-the-file.md (in the workspace IDE) and add the following code snippet without ' in the '{%' (first line)!

docs/part-of-the-file.md

'{%'

This piece of code will include into the file docs/part-of-the-file.md from another Markdown file docs/alnoda-workspaces/workspaces/mkdocs-magicspace/README.md everything between headers Multiple workspaces and Open more ports
