The home page of the Transfiguration of Christ Parish. http://www.ourtransfi.org
The parish website works as a fully-static web project with no serviceable web service components, intended for deployment on cheap static hosting and content that doesn't need dynamic updates.
NOTE: This repository is old (since 2015/2016) and may encounter issues when running in newer environments.
Pre-requisites and Libraries
- Jekyll - used for compiling and building the site
- jQuery - as per usual
- Bootstrap - for UI, responsiveness and layouts
- AWS CLI - for quick deployment on Amazon S3, but is not necessary.
- Clone this repository.
- Load up Jekyll to build or serve (display locally) the site.
# Go to the Home directory where all site assets are kept cd Home # Build using Jekyll docker run --rm \ --volume="$PWD:/srv/jekyll" \ -it jekyll/builder:3.8 \ jekyll build # ...or Serve using Jekyll docker run --rm \ --volume="$PWD:/srv/jekyll" \ -p 80:4000 \ -it jekyll/builder:3.8 \ jekyll serve

You will need a proper Jekyll setup for development, along with its requirements. Jekyll is used to compile and generate Markdown and HTML + Templates into a proper static website ready for deployment.
Please read the Jekyll documents at http://www.jekyllrb.com
You can preview OurTransfi by simply executing
jekyll serve on the Home directory.
Please observe proper Jekyll templating markup. Use Markdown when necessary, followed by HTML and appropriate templating references.
OurTransfi can easily be deployed in any web server, or any service as a platform that allows
static and/or dynamic content for its web servers.
jekyll serve on its own is already functional for other users to view, provided that the machine is exposed to the internet.
You can either use that or any of your favorite web server applications.
By default, OurTransfi is hosted on Amazon's widely-available, affordable and speedy Simple Storage Service.
Just configure Amazon CLI, apply the right key configuration for deploying onto your own account. Run
jekyll buildthen run
sync.shand it should deploy all new changes to the provided address in
The repository also includes the files needed to have the project deployed through Travis. Simply supply the needed keys for AWS in your own setup and Travis should deploy the project on your S3 bucket whenever pull requests or changes are added onto the master branch.
