Hello, and welcome to the Documentation repo for Wilderness Labs! These docs are probably best viewed at the developer.wildernesslabs.co, but they should be readable here, as well. You'll also find all the source code to the samples here.

Running Locally

This repo is also a Ruby site powered by jekyll (which is how it's hosted by GitHub Pages). You can run and browse this site locally, which is especially useful if you're contributing documentation, or you just want an offline experience.

To browse locally:

1. Install Homebrew (if not already installed)

2. Install prerequisites: Ruby, Jekyll, Bundler, and various gems

Open a terminal and navigate to the Documentation/docs folder and run:

$ brew install ruby

Once you have Ruby, you'll need Jekyll and Bundler to build and host the site locally:

$ gem install jekyll bundler

With the Bundler installed to manage the Ruby gems, you can run a command to install all the prerequisite gems for the site:

$ bundle install

3. Launch local server

Change your terminal working folder to Documentation/docs (if it's not aleady) and run:

bundle exec jekyll serve

The site should be available locally at: You can verify the IP address and port from the jekyll output in terminal.

Changes should automatically be picked up and displayed on the site.


Wilderness Labs welcomes and encourages constrictive contributions. We believe that documentation is best when a diverse community of folks with a variety of perspectives and experience share their wisdom and findings with others. Additionally, documentation contributions are a great way to capture learnings that you may even reference yourself.
