Citizen Labs Website Redesign

Up and Running:

  • Hey thanks for stopping by, first you will need to install the Hugo CLI. If you are using MacOS you can use: brew install hugo
  • Next clone in the repo locally: git clone
  • cd ino the directory.
  • Running hugo will compile the site into a web ready viewable format.
  • For local dev run hugo server to have live reload while working on it.
  • By default we have it running on http://localhost:1313/ copy this into your browser URL to see all the amazing changes you make.
  • When ready to production (e.g. to have Google Analytics show up), run HUGO_ENV=production before your build command. For example:
HUGO_ENV=production hugo

Nice you rockstar! You've got it all set up.


  • Production build for our website is being done by Travis.
  • After change, create Pull Request instead of bulding site locally and uploading.
  • Once Pull Request is committed Travis will create the build and update website.

Project Description: Redesign of the Citizen Labs website.

We are using Hugo, an open source static site generator written in Go. Hugo is a general-purpose website framework. Hugo provides improved performance, security and ease of use.

Updates to the beta site will take place after significant development changes.
