What is Qramaank?

Qramaank ( pronounced "kra•maa•nk" - क्रमांक) is an open collaboration platform driven by the community to create and share Qurations.

Quration is an organized collection of REUSED content from various sources on the internet, such as YouTube, GitHub, Spotify, Google Docs, Sheets, slides, and many more.

Qramaank aims to empowers people to Rethink, Reuse and Reorganize the internet according to their preferences.

Some Terminologies

  • Qurations: Organized Collection, Group or Course of various websites content.
  • Item/Chapter: Individual pieces of content within a Quration. For example, a YouTube video, Google Doc, Github Gist, etc.
  • Section: A single grouping of Items.
  • Subscribe: Subscribing to a Quration adds it to your enrolled Qurations and can be accessed from the "My Subscriptions" page.
  • Clone: Cloning or copying another user's Quration allows you to make it your own and customize it as desired, similar to forking on GitHub.

Viewing Qurations

When you open a Quration, you will be directed to its description page. Here, you can find metadata such as the title, subtitle, creation/update date, creator information, and actions like cloning or subscribing (if you are logged in).

You can click on the Start button to go to the contents and consume it in an orderly fashion (ordered by the creator).

You can navigate the items via the Next and Previous buttons at the bottom bar or by directly selecting an item from the right sidebar. You can also hide/show the content sidebar with the Index button.

In the bottom-left corner, you will find the menu button, which provides options to return to the home or info page of the Quration. If you own the content, you will see an Edit or Clone option if you are not the creator (only available when logged in).

Bulk Edit Mode

  1. Each new line represents a single item or chapter.
  2. A line is divided into two parts with the | (pipe symbol, for most keyboard it is Shift + \).
  3. The first part on the line will the title. Such as Installation of Java on Windows.
  4. The second part would be the actual link of the supported content. Such as YouTube.

  6. Installation of Java on Windows |
  7. Now you can do similarly for the rest of the content.
  8. If your title contains the | symbol, then it considers the last | as a separator, so you can add them without issue.

  10. You can add more sections using the Add New Section button.

Click on the Save button once you are done with both info and content details. If there is any mistake, it won't get submitted.
