Apache OpenWhisk Website

License Build Status

Apache OpenWhisk is a cloud-first distributed event-based programming service. It provides a programming model to upload event handlers to a cloud service, and register the handlers to respond to various events.

Quickstart for Local Development

Install Prerequisites

# Verify Node and Node Package Manager are installed
node -v
npm -v

# Verify Ruby is installed
ruby -v

# Install Jekyll, which is used to build the site
gem install jekyll bundler

# Clone the repository (and correct branch).
git clone

# Move into the cloned repo.
cd incubator-openwhisk-website

# Install gem dependencies
bundle install

# Start the development server default location

Validate HTML, links and more

How to Build Jekyll to Output Static Files

If you need to generate static files, run the following:

# NOTE: Make sure you have already cloned the repository and moved into the directory.

# Build the site.
bundle exec jekyll build

This will build static files to a directory called _site/ in the project root. This can be used for manual deployment to a static server or with build tools like Jenkins.


If you get an error 'bundle: command not found' attempting to build the site, you may need to manually install the 'bundler' package:

 gem install bundler

Jenkins build

The website is automatically built and published to Apache at:
