Jaeger website

This repo houses all the assets used to build the Jaeger website, available at

The site is built and hosted by Netlify.



To develop the website on macOS, you'll first need to have Homebrew installed. Once you have Homebrew:

$ brew install hugo

This will install Hugo, the site's static site generator.


Coming soon.

Running the site locally

If you want to develop the site locally, you can run a single command (assuming that you've run the setup):

$ make develop

This will start up a local server on localhost port 1313. When you make changes to either the content of the website (in content) or to the Sass and JavaScript assets of the page (in themes/jaeger-docs/source), the browser will automatically update to reflect those changes (usually in under one second).

Publishing the site

The site is published automatically by Netlify whenever changes are merged to the master branch. The site cannot be published in an ad-hoc way (e.g. through a make command or script in the repo).

Contributing to the site

We strongly encourage you to contribute to this site! For more information, see the contributing guide.
