web.dev is the ultimate resource for developers of all backgrounds to learn, create, and solve on the web. It's meant to not only educate developers, but help them apply what they've learned to any site they work on, be it personal or business.

Before you start writing take a moment to look over the web.dev handbook and familiarize yourself with the process. When you're ready, follow the steps in the Quickstart to create your content proposal.
Building the site
You'll need a recent version of Node: v12.10 or higher.
Clone the repo
git clone https://github.com/GoogleChrome/web.dev.git
Start a local server to preview the site
npm run dev
http://localhost:8080/ to see the site locally. Changes to assets will
rebuild the site. Refresh to see your changes.
Speeding up builds
Any change to the site will cause Eleventy to rebuild. This can take 10-20s. If
you want to speed things up you can isolate your directory using the
npm run isolate
This will move all of the markdown files for the site into the
directory and it will ignore them for builds.
You may pass an optional glob (or space separated list of globs) to the
isolate command to tell it to preserve a directory.
# Example 1: Preserve the style-focus directory # note the -- which is needed to pass options to npm scripts npm run isolate -- src/site/content/en/accessible/style-focus/** # Example 2: Preserve everything in the accessible directory npm run isolate -- src/site/content/en/accessible/**/*
When you're finished making your edits, run the
integrate command to restore
all of the project files.
npm run integrate
git commit until
you have run the
ELEVENTY_ENV=prod to force production builds. This is the default when
running "stage" or "deploy". No other options for
ELEVENTY_ENV are supported,
although our Eleventy site config will default to 'dev' if unspecified.
When you send in a pull request it will be automatically staged for you. Keep an eye out for the netlify bot to comment on the pull request with your unique URL.
Deploying the site
The site will build and deploy the master branch automatically every hour, Mon-Fri. If you've just merged an article then it should go live at the top of the next hour.
To manually deploy the site you'll need to be a member of one of these GitHub teams:
- Navigate to the Deploy workflow in the Actions panel.
- Click the Run workflow button. Make sure the branch says
master, then click the green Run workflow button.
If you need to debug the site's build process:
- Add a
npm run debug
- Go to
chrome://inspectto attach to the running process.
