About

I built this website as a way to store and present various works and projects. The site itself owes it's beginnings to Jonathan McGlone's wonderfully helpful guide.

This website is built with Jekyll and hosted on my Raspberry Pi (Raspbian on RPi3 Model B).

Building

Requirements

  • Ruby: for building the site with Jekyll and Bundler.
  • Jekyll: static site generator.
  • Bundler: dependency management.
  • Git: source code management.

Instructions

Source code can be found here. To spin up your own site, follow the jekyll quick-start quide (adapted below):

# install ruby
# for OS-specific instructions, check out https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/

# Install Jekyll and Bundler gems through RubyGems
gem install jekyll bundler

# install dependencies
bundle install

# Create a new Jekyll site at ./myblog
jekyll new myblog

# alternatively, clone an existing jekyll site
# git clone https://liambeckman.com/cgit/website.git

# Change into your new directory
cd myblog

# Build the site on the preview server
bundle exec jekyll serve

# Now browse to http://localhost:4000

# then you can change the html/css files in the myblog directory to suit your tastes!

# hosting is a whole 'nother beast, but services like github pages
# and gitlab pages make free hosting relatively easier.

CI/CD

The website is updated every time a push is made to the master branch. Build commands are defined in the Jenkinsfile, and build results can be viewed at either of the following URL's.
