Build instructions

Start by cloning this repository into your computer

git clone

Install rbenv to manage your local ruby version. If you haven't configured this, you'll get write permission errors on MacOS as Apple has implemented System Integrity Protection, preventing write access to certain system files.

rbenv can be install by running brew install rbenv if you have homebrew installed, otherwise run curl -fsSL | bash

Run rbenv version to check which version of Ruby you're running. If it returns system, you'll need to install or switch to a version of Ruby for local use.

This repo needs ruby version 2.3.3, therefore run rbenv install 2.3.3.

Switch to ruby 2.3.3 to use locally, rbenv local 2.3.3

Run gem install bundler to install the ruby gem bundler

Navigate to the cloned repository with cd. if you cloned it in Documents, you'll get there with cd Documents/events.

Run bundle install to let the bundler automatically install all required packages for the build.

Go grab a cup of coffee while this is running, it could take a while. Next, when you're in the events folder, run bundle exec jekyll serve. This will create a local server for you, which can be accessed by typing http://localhost:4000/events/


You can’t perform that action at this time.
