The Climatescope is a unique country-by-country assessment, interactive report and index that evaluates the investment climate for climate-related investment worldwide. It is a project by BNEF, UK AID, and developed by Development Seed. Previous editions were also supported by Power Africa, and the Multilateral Investment Fund.

Install Project Dependencies

To set up the development environment for this website, you'll need to install the following on your system:

  • Node v8.11 (To manage multiple node versions we recommend nvm)
  • Yarn Package manager
  • Ruby and Bundler. Highly suggest using rvm

Install Application Dependencies

If you use nvm, activate the desired Node version:

nvm install

Install Node modules:

yarn install

This will then automatically run bundle install to install the ruby gems.

Jekyll configurations and environment variables

There are 3 files to configure jekyll that get loaded according to the environment the app is being built for:

  • _config.yml - production settings
  • _config-stage.yml - overrides the production settings for staging server
  • _config-dev.yml - local (development) overrides. This file is gitignored, so you can safely change it without polluting the repo.

Javascript configurations and environment variables

At times, it may be necessary to include options/variables specific to production, staging or local in the code. To handle this, there is a master config.js file. This file should not be modified. Instead, modify one of:

  • config/production.js - production settings
  • config/staging.js - overrides the production settings for staging server
  • config/local.js - local (development) overrides. This file is gitignored, so you can safely change it without polluting the repo.

By default production.js is always loaded and values are overridden by staging.js or local.js according to the environment.

Values overridable by environment variables are expressed between []:

  • appTitle - Title of the site
  • appEdition - Edition of the site
  • appDescription - Description of the site for meta purposed
  • policyDbUrl - Url for the Policy database
  • mediumLatestUrl - Url for the medium script
  • gaTrackingID - Google analytics tracking ID [GA_TRACKING_ID]
  • mailchimpUrl - Url for the mailchimp list subscription [MAILCHIMP_URL]
  • mbtoken - Mapbox token [MB_TOKEN]
