Content designed to increase developer happiness 😁 and productivity 🚀.

Project Tour

The monorepo is organized into five sub-projects.

  1. hugo - Static Site Generator. This is where the content lives.
  2. design - Theme & CSS
  3. components - Angular Elements Web Components
  4. functions - Firebase Cloud Functions Serverless Backend
  5. cypress - End-to-End & Integration Specs

Running the Site

First, install Hugo.

git clone <fireship-repo>

npm install

npm run dev

Visit localhost:1313 and you should be live. You do not need the web components for general content development, but they can be built with:

cd components && npm install
npm run build


Edit and fix the site's content in hugo/content/. Feel free to submit PRs for small issues. For large issues or features open an issue first.

First, fork this repo on Github.

git clone <your-forked-repo>
npm install
npm run dev

git checkout -b my-fix
# fix some code...

git commit -m "fix: corrected a typo"
git push origin my-fix

Lastly, open a pull request on Github. Once merged, your changes will automatically be deployed to the live site via the CI/CD pipeline.

Keeping Your Fork in Sync

As features are added and fixes are made to the original repo (usually referred to as the 'upstream') your fork will become out of date. You can keep your fork up to date by doing the following:

One-Time Setup

Run from your terminal

npm run link-upstream

This should add the official repo as a remote called: 'upstream'. You can see all remotes by entering:

git remote -v

In a typical setup, you should see your fork on Github listed as origin, and the fireship-io original as upstream:

origin (fetch)
origin (push)
upstream (fetch)
upstream (push)

Keeping In Sync With the Original

Whenever you believe your fork may be out of sync, just run from your terminal

npm run sync

This will update your local master branch to match the original repo's master branch! It will then push those changes to your fork on GitHub, essentially keeping all 3 in sync!
