Netlify Status

This repository contains the source for the Dolittle documentation website.

Built with the docsy Hugo template.


This repository has a sub module, clone it with:

$ git clone --recursive

If you've already cloned it, you can get the submodule by doing the following:

$ git submodule update --init --recursive

This might take a while.


Check docsy documentation for how to build and customize stuff.

You'll need Hugo extended v0.71 or higher.

Markdown files are either in Source/content or symlinks to their respective submodules from Repositories/.

If you want to do SCSS edits and want to publish these, you need to install PostCSS (not needed for hugo server):

cd Source/
npm install

Running the website locally

Once you've cloned the site repo, from the repo root folder, run:

hugo server

Build your local Dolittle repository documentation

Run the dolittle-documentation-server script from withing your local Dolittle git repository that you want to edit. The script will automatically mount the correct folders inside the docker image and start a Hugo server that will watch for changes.

It doesn't matter which subfolder you're in as long as your in the git repository.


Running a container locally

You can run docsy-example inside a Docker container, the container runs with a volume bound to the docsy-example folder. This approach doesn't require you to install any dependencies other than Docker.

  1. Build the docker image
  1. Run the built image
docker run --publish 1313:1313 --detach --mount src="$(pwd)",target=/home/docsy/app,type=bind dolittle/documentation:latest

Open your web browser and type http://localhost:1313 in your navigation bar, This opens a local instance of the docsy-example homepage. You can now make changes to the docsy example and those changes will immediately show up in your browser after you save.

To stop the container, first identify the container ID with:

docker container ls

Take note of the hexadecimal string below the CONTAINER ID column, then stop the container:

docker stop [container_id]

To delete the container run:

docker container rm [container_id]
