I see sites like shields.io or similar and they have these clips of markdown to show badges...but if I cut 'n paste these it's just the demo value. How can I make it "real".
For example bintray has their own "Latest Version Badge" markdown that works fine. I think the "shields" sites are trying to standardize the look 'n feel of these badges and they claim bintray is one of their supported services.
How can I actually use their nice badge and pull my version data from bintray?
A Bintray shield would look somthing like this:
There are two URIs in the shield the first is for the image and the second is for navigation upon clicking the image. Both URIs include
asciidoctor/maven/asciidoctorj - a Bintray repository. If you replace both occurrences of
asciidoctor/maven/asciidoctorj with your repository, you should have a working shield:
