hackercouch Build Status

HackerCouch is "Hospitality for Hackers". Here's how it goes:

  • Fork this repo
  • Add your own markdown file with your nick (perhaps twitter/github handle?) in the _couches directory
  • You file a Pull Request on github
  • Make sure the build passes
  • Go check hackercouch.com the next time you are travelling.

See add.md for more detailed instructions.

The idea isn't new, it has been tried before as well. The reason we are trying this again is:

  • The idea of a Fork->PR->Merge->Publish flow with almost zero effort
  • Filing a pull request is a great filter for hackers
  • hackercouch.com was available
  • This comment by @sirupsen on HN

Development

  • HackerCouch uses Jekyll Collections heavily
  • Hosted on Github Pages, duh.
  • Builds use Travis, and make sure that the site has proper html before its deployed
  • html-proofer for html linting + link checks

Quickstart

. ./_script/setup-env.sh
gem install bundler
bundle install
jekyll serve --watch

And open http://localhost:4000 in your browser.

Troubleshooting

  • If your bundle fails due Nokogiri and you're on OSX, try running this first: xcode-select --install
