A microsite for our 2017 Gauguin exhibition
This is a promotional website for the Art Institue of Chicago's Gauguin: Artist as Alchemist exhibition (June 25th – Sept. 10, 2017). It uses Jigsaw, a static site generator made with Laravel components.
Note that we included Jigsaw in
composer.json, but for convenience, you may want to install it globally. Laravel Elixir is an API for defining Gulp tasks, which Jigsaw uses for compiling assets (e.g. SCSS into CSS).
To get started with this project, use the following commands:
# Clone the repo to your computer git clone https://github.com/art-institute-of-chicago/gauguin-microsite.git # Enter the folder that was created by the clone cd gauguin-microsite # Install PHP dependencies (notably Jigsaw) composer install # Install Node.js packages npm install # Build the local version of the site ./vendor/bin/jigsaw build # Run the development server ./vendor/bin/jigsaw serve
You can now view your site at http://localhost:8000 in your browser.
Please note that these instructions assume that Jigsaw is installed locally, via
composer.json. If you installed Jigsaw globally, you can substitute calls to
./vendor/bin/jigsaw with just
jigsaw. See its installation guide for more details.
You can alternatively use
gulp watch to run a development server and access your site at http://localhost:3000. This will compile all the CSS, and the browser will automatically update when you make changes.
To start the slideshow on a given slide, use the
q parameter value:
This will start the slideshow on the second slide.
