Project site for Asciidoctor, composed in AsciiDoc, styled by Foundation, baked with Awestruct and published by Travis CI.

For instructions on how to install Awestruct and its dependencies, refer to the section Install Awestruct below.

Preview the site locally

To preview the site locally, simply run the default rake build task:


The default rake build task is preview, so you’re effectively typing:

rake preview

The preview task is just a short way of invoking Awestruct in development mode directly:

awestruct -d

Now visit http://localhost:4242 to preview the site.

To rebuild the site from a clean state, pass the --force flag to the preview task:

rake preview[--force]

You can pass any flag through to Awestruct using the syntax in the previous command.

If you just want to generate the site, run:

rake gen

Add and commit files

Add new files (such as a new blog entry or image):

git add news/news-slug.adoc

or all new files present in a directory (it only affects new files, skips files already committed)

git add news/

Commit all files marked to be committed, including new files that were just added:

git commit -m 'your message here'

Commit all files that have changed, even if not marked to be committed:

git commit -a -m 'your message here'

Make sure there are no files that are "untracked" or "modified":

git status

You should see:

nothing to commit (working directory clean)

Now you are ready to deploy.

Deploy the site to GitHub Pages

The following commands will push changes (git push), clean build the site (--force -g) using the production profile (-P production), then deploy it to github pages (--deploy):

git push
awestruct -P production --force -g --deploy

Or simply run the prepared rake build task (to deploy locally):

rake deploy

Or just push and let Travis CI do the work of deploying the site:

rake push

If you want to push without triggering a publish, add the following to the commit message:

[ci skip]

Install Awestruct

First, install RVM. Trust me on this.

$ curl -#L | bash -s stable --ruby

Next, setup an RVM gemset for working with the Asciidoctor site:

$ rvm use --create

At this point, you could install Awestruct directly, but since the site build has some additional dependencies, it’s best to let bundler handle the installation. Bundler will also ensure that you are using the correct versions of each gem when you run Awestruct.

$ bundle install

You’re now Awestruct!

DNS records

The site runs on the domain name, which is specified in the CNAME file. The GitHub server automatically sets up redirects that point from to
