Uberspace 7 Lab

Welcome to our laboratory! :tada:

This is where we host the source code of the official version over at The lab contains a collection of guides and tips on how to run specific software on Uberspace 7. Most of the guides are contributed by users like you! So, if you'd like to change or add something here, you're more than welcome to do so. Have a look at our contributing guidelines to learn how. Also, have a look at the list of guides people are looking for!


Pushing for each and every change is fun, but can take some time. To speed up your development process, the lab can be built locally.

Initial Setup

make setup


source .venv/bin/activate
make clean html

The HTML views are now present in


Development Server

To build automatically on each change use

make clean serve

This will start a local webserver on, which always serves the most recent version.


To lint all files, you can use

make lint

Or just to check the guides for consistency:

make check-guides


To check the spelling you can use the spell check function of Sphinx:

make spelling

Add Words to Guide

If your guide needs to use words, that should not go into the global dictionary (see below), you can flag them with the

directive like this (usually near the top of your guide):
.. spelling::

Add Words to Global Dictionary

  1. run
    make get-new-words
    to write a list of all spelling errors found to
  2. edit the resulting
    1. decide wich words to keep for the global dict,
    2. and wich might be better put into a guide local list (see the
      directive above for that)
  3. if satisfied, run
    make add-new-words
    to merge them to the global dictionary
  4. commit your changes :pencil2:
