The Artsy OSS page and the blog run on top of a default jekyll install. If you'd like an overview of jekyll their website rocks.
git clone email@example.com:artsy/artsy.github.io.git cd artsy.github.io rake bootstrap rake build
Running the OSS Site / Blog locally
rake serve will not generate category pages. They take a long time to generate. No one wants that when working on the site.
Categories are generated when the ENV var
Travis CI will automatically deploy when new commits are pushed to the
source branch, so you shouldn't need to deploy from your local computer. However, if you need to deploy locally, the
rake deploy command is available.
Adding an Author
Authors are key-value stored, so you'll need to give yourself a key inside _config.yml - for example:
joey: name: Joey Aghion github: joeyAghion twitter: joeyAghion site: http://joey.aghion.com
Everything but name is optional.
Authoring an Article
To generate a new post, create a new file in the
_posts directory. Be sure to add your name as the author of the post and include a couple of categories to file the post under. Here's some sample header YAML:
--- layout: post title: "Responsive Layouts with CSS3" date: 2012-01-17 11:03 comments: true author: Matt McNierney github-url: https://www.github.com/mmcnierney14 twitter-url: http://twitter.com/mmcnierney blog-url: http://mattmcnierney.wordpress.com categories: [Design, CSS, HTML5] ---
More info can be found in the official docs.
When you have authored an article,
git add and
git commit it, then push to a named branch with
git push origin [branch], and create a pull request to the
source branch, it will be deployed to the site by travis when merged.
