Main Secretchronicles website

This repository contains the main website of the Secretchronicles project, which is available under https://www.secretchronicles.org.

The site is completey static HTML, utilising the nanoc site generator. It is based on Ruby, so make sure you have Ruby (including RubyGems, if you are on a Debian-based Linux) installed.

Viewing locally

First, install all necessary dependencies via RubyGems and Bundler:

$ gem install bundler
$ bundle install

Then use nanoc to compile and serve the site:

$ bundle exec nanoc compile
$ bundle exec nanoc view

Browse to http://localhost:3000/en to view the main page in English. There is no language redirect functionality on the local site, this can only be added on an actual server.

Adding new content

On website, English pages are at /content/en and Finnish /content/fi. To create new news page, copy old to new name with correct date in filename. Ruby code lists files automatically, so newest news is first at website. All page design is at layouts dir for most pages. Images are at content/assets and CSS at content/stylesheets/default.css . nanoc generates static pages to output directory, that can be sent to webserver for test viewing at webtest subdomain with rsync. Rsync uses compression, deletes from server old files that are not at new version of website, and excludes robots.txt so it stays at server.

cd main-website/output
rsync -avz --delete --exclude=robots.txt -e "ssh -p SSH-PORTNUMBER-HERE" . username@alexandria.DOMAIN-HERE.DOMAIN-SUFFIX-HERE-LIKE-ORG-ETC:/home/username/webtest/

Actual updating as official webpages alexandria server official webpages is with git, remember to also add other directories if you changed elsewhere than on content directory:

# Change to git repo directory
cd main-website
# Get latest changes from geite repo
git pull
# View local changed files
git status
# If you want to view source code changes
git diff
# Add new and modified files
git add content/*
# Commit locally
git commit -a -m "News article about..."
# Push to official repo
git push

The changes will be installed to official server every midnight automatically by cron script at server. nanoc generates static content at webserver, output is visible at the official website.

Translating

For translating the site, simply translate all the pages below the content/en directory into a new directoy content/xx, where xx is the 2-letter code for your target language. Note that when translating news posts, you have to keep the file name exactly as it is in English, only translate the file content. If you add your name to the translator: header, it will be shown on the translated page.
