LambdaSpace - New website for Thessaloniki's Hackerspace
What is the LambdaSpace?
A 120m2 space dedicated to creative software and hardware hacking. Tech communities, meetups and individuals now have their own space in Thessaloniki.
LambdaSpace provides a 3D printer, electronics, as well as a fully equipped lab that can help you prototype your idea. Moreover, you can get in touch with the city's brightest minds; makers, coders, ninjas, engineers, and designers meet here.
The space is maintained thanks to the contributions of our (awesome) members and supporters.
The LambdaSpace website was redesigned in order to increase the visibilty of the hackerspace, as well as to more effectively promote the events and projects that take place on a daily basis at the hackerspace.
We have also deployed our own instance of the open source discussion platfom Discource, available here.
How to contribute
Anyone is welcome to contribute to the development and enhancement of LambdaSpace's website.
Keep in mind that in order to make changes in the website's CSS, js, and images, you will need to install Gulp first. If that is the case, you are advised to follow these steps:
Prerequisites: Node.js, npm, Gulp
Preparing your development environment
Gulp is installed and managed via npm, the Node.js package mananger.
Before setting up Gulp make sure that your npm is up-to-date by running
npm update -g npm. Τhis might require
sudo on certain systems.
Afterwards, install the Gulp command line interface (CLI) globally, by running
npm install -g gulp.
This will put the
gulp command in your system path, allowing it to be run from any directory.
A typical Gulp project setup will involve adding two files to your project:
package.json and the
package.json file belongs in the root directory of your project, and should be commited with your project source. Running
npm install in the same folder as a
package.json file will install the correct version of each dependency listed therein.
Gulpfile.js file is a valid JS file that also belongs in the root directory of your project, next to your
package.json file, and should be commited with your project source.
For further info and detailed directions see the Gulp [Getting Started guide] (https://github.com/gulpjs/gulp/blob/master/docs/getting-started.md).
Working with an existing Gulp project
This project is already configured with a
package.json and a
Gulpfile, so assuming that the Gulp has been installed successfully:
- Open your terminal and navigate to the project's folder.
yarn installto install project dependencies.
Before making any changes run
gulp on your terminal.
