Kubernetes Contributor Site

This repository contains the Hugo site and generator scripts for the Kubernetes Contributor site. Much of the content is generated from the kubernetes/community repo directly and care should be taken when working within the content directory. The hugo theme being used is a slimmed down derivative of the docdock theme.

The heavy lifting occurs within the script. If not being called externally, it will clone the kubernetes/community within the build directory then sync specific directories and files to the content directory.

Content is synced following the below rules:

  • committee-steering is moved to governance/steering-committee.
  • committee-code-of-conduct directory is moved to /governance/cocc.
  • github-management is moved to governance/github-management
  • is moved to governance/ and will become the default index page for the governance section.
  • and are moved to the root of governance/.
  • Directories prefixed with sig- and wg- will be synced to the sigs directory.
  • is moved to sigs/ and will become the default index page for the sigs section
  • Other directories not included in the exclude.list are copied to the root of the content directory.
  • Files at the root of the directory will only be copied over if they are listed in the include.list with the exclusion of and
  • is copied to both the special-interest-groups and working-groups and renamed to
  • The from the root of the community repository is copied over to the root of the content directory for now.

Next it will go through all the files within the content directory and search for any links that may need to be corrected to function outside of github along with inserting a front-matter header (if needed).

Lastly, any files are renamed to These function similarly to files within a GitHub repository, but are what Hugo is expecting.

At that point the site can be previewed locally with hugo serve, or the site built with hugo. If it is built, the default location is build/public.

Building the Site

The Kubernetes Contributor Site is built with Hugo. For instructions on installing and general usage, see the Hugo Documentation.

Once Hugo is installed, clone the repository locally. Then run the, script to pull down the kubernetes/community repository and generate the site content.

After the script completes, the site can be previewed by executing hugo serve from the project directory. If satisfied with your changes, the site can be fully rendered with the hugo command to the build/public directory.

Note to MAC Users

OSX by default ships with an outdated version of bash that does not support all the functionality used by the site generator script. Bash can be safely updated via homebrew. Once installed, execute the below commands to install a newer version of bash.

$ brew install bash
$ sudo bash -c 'echo /usr/local/bin/bash >> /etc/shells'
$ chsh -s /usr/local/bin/bash

You may need to restart or log out and log back in again to have it fully apply.
