This is a Jekyll-based website designed to be published on the Federalist platform.

The website utilizes the US Web Design Standards.




Since this is a Jekyll-based website, you will need Ruby. The best way to get Ruby is to install it via rbenv. See the rbenv installation instructions to set it up on your system.

Building and Previewing

First, install Ruby gem dependencies:

bundle install

Then you can run the site locally with live reloading:

bundle exec jekyll serve

You should now be able to preview the site on your local machine at http://localhost:4000/.

Proposing changes and reporting issues

The best way to contact us regarding this is to open an issue on GitHub. Please submit a new issue if you need to:
