Preparing

Clone this repo, and use bundler to get dependencies:

$ bundle install

The website is built using middleman. Livereload is enabled.

Note: to install the 'eventmachine' gem a ruby development environment needs to be present. You may need to run something like:

$ sudo apt-get install ruby2.3-dev

Run development website

$ bundle exec middleman server

Then visit http://localhost:4567.

Publishing

Git branch 'gh-pages' now holds the publishable version of TryRuby, accessible via easydatawarehousing.github.io/TryRuby/.

A fork of this repository is used for the website that Ruby-lang.org links to.
