How to build the Aeolus Project website
You need to have Ruby installed, along with the following gems:
- nanoc (3.3.3 is known to work)
- haml (3.1.4 is known to work)
- sass (3.1.16 is known to work)
- kramdown (0.13.5 is known to work)
- nokogiri (1.5.2 is known to work)
- adsf (1.1.1 is known to work)
Depending on your operating system, you may need to add the directory with the "nanoc" executable to your $PATH.
Building the Website
The Aeolus Project website is created using nanoc. It takes a website defined by a set of layouts, templates and content files, runs a count of filters on them and produces a static web structure that can be directly posted to a webserver or displayed in a browser.
To do this, go to the "nanocsite" directory and run "nanoc compile":
$ cd nanocsite $ nanoc compile
The website will be generated into the "nanocsite/output/" directory.
To view the output, start nanoc's built in web server, then point your browser to http://localhost:3000.
$ nanoc view $ firefox http://localhost:3000
Nanoc has many more commands and options available. You can find out more about them by running:
$ nanoc help
