Icinga Exchange – A New Era

In autumn 2014 Icinga Exchange first saw the light of day. As the successor of monitoringexchange.org it is the home for all Icinga compatible plugins and addons since then.

Create your own Icinga Book

Like many other Open Source projects, the Icinga team uses GitHub as its hosting service. Over 25 different repositories contain our monitoring software Icinga 2, the web interface Icinga Web 2, Docker containers and Vagrant boxes, various modules, etc. Some of the repositories offer simple installation instructions and configuration examples (README.md), others contain a subdirectory called doc with more detailed instructions and several files.
To create a handbook for offline viewing, you don’t need to copy & paste the content of all the files into your favourite text editor or word processor and start from scratch. All of the guides are written in Markdown, a lightweight markup language with plain text formatting syntax, and it is quite easy to convert them to other formats like plain or rich text, HTML, HTML5, Wiki markup (MediaWiki), LaTeX, PDF, ODT, or EPUB. All you need is a little commandline tool called Pandoc .
