  1. Clone/fork the repository
  2. Open the /src/Articulate.sln file
  3. Build the solution (will also performa Nuget restore)
  4. Ensure that Articulate.Web is set as the startup project
  5. Start the Articulate.Web project
  6. This will run the Umbraco installer, install as per normal
  7. The Articulate package migrations will also execute and install all of the Articulate schema and content items

Now you're all set! Any source changes you wish to make just do that in Visual Studio, build the solution when you need to and the changes will be reflected in the website.

Changing Umbraco Articulate schema/data elements

If you need to make changes to the underlying Umbraco schema (doc types, data types, etc...) or the installed package's content/media, then you will need to re-create the Articulate package in the back office with all required dependencies and then re-save the file and commit it to the repository.
