Fast Ruby Blog
Blog for the Fast Ruby using Jekyll as the blog-engine.
To get the blog up and running in a local environment, follow the steps below:
- Clone the repository:
git clone email@example.com:fastruby/blog.git
.ruby-versionif you're using RVM.
bundle installto install Jekyll and other dependencies.
- Start the blog by running
bundle exec jekyll serve.
You can then access the blog at localhost:4000 (default port).
By default, the auto-regeneration is enabled, so any changes on HTML, CSS or posts will be auto-regenerated/compiled and viewable by refreshing the browser.
Creating a new post
$ bundle exec post:create
After saving the new file to
/_posts/, you will see the post generated as HTML under
/_site/ and published to your local blog if it's running.
To edit the post, first change the YAML variables
categories. You can also change
layout to use one of the layouts under
/_layouts/ (only post and page exist for now).
Then, you can begin writing your post by replacing the existing copy beneath. NOTE: It should be written using Markdown syntax.
After you're done, simply save the file, and (optionally) run the blog locally if it's not already running to preview it.
Publishing a post
In order to publish your newly created post, simply create a branch and make a Pull Request. When the branch is merged and deployed, the post will be displayed in the blog.
Editing a post
To edit a post, simply edit the content for one of the markdown files and the HTML for the post will regenerate.
Deleting a post
To delete a post, you can unpublish it by setting a
published flag under the post's YAML variables, see: http://jekyllrb.com/docs/frontmatter/
