How to Setup Deployment key

Before you will be able to deploy you will need to setup your deployment key. Rename the file aws_sample.json to aws.json and fill in the values.

To obtain the key and secret you need to go to Amazon and copy the values from there. (more info here)

The bucket is simply the bucket name and the region can be obtained from your S3 dashboard.

Don't worry, the aws.json file will be ignored by git.

File Organization

Your working files are located in the src folder. The index.html has includes for smaller components of each page. Those components can be found in src/partials

To add any js library simply copy it to the src/js/vendor folder

Adding and Removing Assets

To remove the default docs styles simply remove the include from src/scss/styles.scss and delete the file from the components folder.

To add any js library simply copy it to the src/js/vendor folder
