18F Content Guide

This is the repository for the 18F Content Guide. This guide was developed for 18F employees, but we hope it's a useful reference for everyone.

For a detailed introduction, see how to use this guide.


18F's Content Guild (#g-content) maintains this guide.

We started by adapting GOV.UK’s work, and we’d like to thank their team for championing plain language and information accessibility. We've since expanded the guide to cover more topics, reorganized things, and moved the site from 18F Pages to Federalist. This guide is a work in progress, and we'll continue refining it over time.



The Content Guide uses USWDS-Jekyll.

To test it locally:

To run it locally:

  1. Clone the repository.
  2. Install Jekyll and the necessary dependencies: bundle install
  3. Run the web server with bundle exec jekyll serve
  4. Visit the local site at http://localhost:4000
