Local development

Sometimes you want to test or modify things locally. Luckily, this is pretty easy, you just have to do the following:

  • Clone or download the repository
  • Make sure you have Ruby 2.2.5 or above installed
  • Run bundle install in the directory where you cloned the project (if you don't have Bundler installed, install it using gem install bundler)
  • Run bundle exec jekyll serve to get a local preview of your site. It auto-updates every time you edit something
  • If you want LiveReload functionality, run bundle exec jekyll serve --livereload

Local development with a Docker container

If you don't have locally available the Ruby stack, you might want to use a Docker container.

Install Docker (if don't have already) following this guide.

You can run the website with this command (tested on Linux):

$ docker run --rm -p 8000:4000 \
    -v $(pwd):/site \
# site available on: http://localhost:8000

An more compact option could be to install docker-compose and use the docker compose recipe with a simple:

$ docker-compose up
