This website is run by Jekyll and GitHub pages. To separate the source files from the files used for the live page this repo uses two active branches:
master contains all files,
gh-pages only contains the files needed to serve the actual website.
To work with this environment follow these steps:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:CSSclasses/CSSclasses.git
git clone email@example.com:CSSclasses/CSSclasses.git -b gh-pages _site
This clones the source files into the CSSclasses projects folder and the generated
_site content aka.

Ruby – Jekyll requires the Ruby language. If you have a Mac, you've most likely already got Ruby. If you open up the Terminal application, and run the command
ruby --versionyou can confirm this. Your Ruby version should be at least
2.0.0. If you've got that, you're all set. Skip to step #2. Otherwise, follow these instructions to install Ruby.
Gems Dependencies – In order to install all of the gems we need, please run the following:
gem install bundler. Now you're ready to install everything with one command:
bundle installand you're good to go.
