Citizen Labs Website Redesign

Slack: #cl-website

Project Description: 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.

Ongoing Development:

To address issues and functionality that have come up over time regarding the current website we have begun development on the fresh-design branch.

More background on how Hugo works and how to make changes to website.

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 into the directory.
  • Fetch the theme submodule: git submodule update --init --recursive
  • 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.

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 building site locally and uploading.
  • Once Pull Request is committed Travis will create the build and update website.
