This is the gravestone website for the Homework project, EP/F064276/1. The project was supported by EPSRC and involved the University of Nottingham, University of Glasgow, Imperial College, BT Research and Microsoft Research Cambridge. This site is hosted at

If you have permission to do so, basic instructions for editing the site are:

  • clone the repo at

  • edit the .md (markdown) files, adding directories and files as you see fit (I tend to avoid .html extensions so use directories with files in).

  • make test runs a local copy via jekyll for testing on localhost:4000

  • make deploy runs git status && git push to check what the status of your edits is, and to push the current repository upstream to github.


jekyll (a ruby thing) and lessc (a node.js thing). The former builds the site and the latter rebuilds the css file -- you won't need the former if you don't wish to test your changes (not recommended!), and you won't need the latter if you don't touch anything under _less or css.

On OSX Lion I install ruby via rvm per:

bash -s stable < <(curl -s 
rvm install 1.9.3
rvm use 1.9.3 --default
gem install jekyll

and node.js with lessc via homebrew per:

brew install node
curl | sh
npm install -g less

These install jekyll and lessc in the following locations:

$ which jekyll
$ which lessc
