Build Status

The Artsy OSS page and the blog runs on top of a default jekyll install. If you would like an overview of jekyll their website rocks.


  git clone
  bundle exec rake bootstrap
  bundle exec rake build

Running the OSS Site / Blog locally

Running rake serve will not generate category pages. They take a long time to generate. No one wants that when working on the site.

  bundle exec rake serve

Categories are generated when the ENV var PRODUCTION = "YES".


Travis CI will automatically deploy when new commits are pushed to the source branch, so you should not need to deploy from your local computer. However, if you need to deploy locally, the rake deploy command is available.

Adding an Author

Authors are key-value stored, so you will need to give yourself a key inside _config.yml - for example:

    name: Joey Aghion
    github: joeyAghion
    twitter: joeyAghion

Everything but name is optional.

Authoring an Article

Note: we now have some templates to help get you started writing a blog post. Check out the Post-Templates directory.

TLDR To generate a new post, create a new file in the _posts directory. Be sure to add your name as the author of the post and include several categories to file the post under. Here is a sample header YAML:

Note: categories are aggregated from the individual posts, so adding one is as easy as adding it to your post!

layout: post
title: "Responsive Layouts with CSS3"
date: 2012-01-17 11:03
comments: true
author: Matt McNierney
categories: [Design, CSS, HTML5]

More info can be found in the official docs.

When you have authored an article, git add and git commit it, then push to a named branch with git push origin [branch], and create a pull request to the source branch, it will be deployed to the site by travis when merged.
