How can I contribute?

If you want to contribute:

  • email the community maintainer
  • fork the repo, edit and submit a pull request

See the wiki for instructions for adding content.

Building the source code

First you need to install the following tools. The instructions depend on the operating system you use.

git clone

The compiled code can be found in the _site folder. If you want to build it with a different baseurl, change the baseurl value in _config.yml.

# Site settings
title: LevelUp
description: Resources for the global digital safety training community.
baseurl: "" # the subpath of your site, e.g. /blog
url: "" # the base hostname & protocol for your site

Once you've added the baseurl you want, run the build command.

jekyll build

Or change it on the fly when you run the serve command with the baseurl of your choosing.

jekyll serve --baseurl '' --watch


Main site

Level-Up uses Github Actions to automatically deploy the site on Github Pages whenever there is a change to the repository. The Action it uses is .github/workflows/publish-to-gh-pages.yml. It is based on Jekyll's recommended Action configuration:

Dev site

The dev site also uses Github Actions to build whenever there is a change to the dev repository, in a slightly more complicated manner:

  • Github Actions runs the .github/workflows/publish-to-dev.yml Action that first builds the site, then transfers the directory with static files to another repo, level-up-dev
  • level-up-dev runs its own Github Action to publish the static files.
