The blog for CocoaPods


To install git submodules and grab ruby dependencies:

$ rake bootstrap


To start a local server that shows all posts including drafts:

$ rake serve:drafts

This is also the default task, so just rake will do the same.

Or if you want to see the blog *without any draft posts, as the blog would look if it were to be deployed right now:

$ rake serve:published

The shared submodule is the cocoapods shared resources repo that holds shared design notes and assets.

Add a new author

Navigate to the _config.yml file. Add a nickname for you followed by your full name, twitter handle and gravatar hash.

Add a new post

Create a new file in _post directory following the format year-month-day-blog-post-title.markdown

Start the post using Jekylls Front Matter:

layout: post
title:  "Blog Post Title"
author: nickname
categories: tags that are relevant


Run rake deploy to push to site the gh-pages branch.

The _gh-pages folder (which is ignored) is used to checkout the gh-pages of this repo. rake deploy will push the built version of the site to that branch and push to the server pulling in any changes.


Drafts are stored in the _drafts folder to leverage the drafts feature of jekyll. The rake serve task is configured to show the drafts.
