This is a big project with many translations involved. Please help us stay on top of things by following our guidelines for contributors.
In order to generate the site locally, you need to have Pygments installed on your system.
Bundler will take care of the rest of the dependencies, so unless you already have done so, you might need to install bundler with:
gem install bundler
Then clone the repository and install the dependencies:
git clone https://github.com/ruby/www.ruby-lang.org.git cd www.ruby-lang.org/ bundle install
To generate the site and start a local web server, you can use
bundle exec rake preview
Then open http://localhost:4000/ in your local browser to access the preview.
Note: The build of the site will take several minutes.
If you created the site previously and the
already exists, the web server will start instantly but large parts
of the site will not be updated until the build has completely finished.
Also, the build may fail silently when using the preview mode.
To always get feedback on the success of the build you might want to create the website without starting a local server instead:
bundle exec rake generate
When you now start a preview with the site already generated it will be available instantly.
