This project is built and managed using Apache Maven.

To clone, build, and run this project you must have Maven installed and configured.

To begin, clone the repository.

#~> git clone

Run mvn jetty:run from within your newly cloned blog directory to start the local servlet container.

#~> cd blog
#~/blog> mvn jetty:run

Run mvn jetty:run-forked fizzed-watcher:run to start Jetty in "forked" mode and watch for resource changes. Any changes to .js or .css files will invoke the process-resources goal to minfiy and compress all static resources while the Jetty server continues to run:

#~/blog> mvn jetty:run-forked fizzed-watcher:run

In your nearest web-browser, visit http://localhost:8080/blog.

To stop the development server, press Ctrl-C.

To build a deployable WAR for your favorite servlet container, run mvn package.

#~/blog> mvn package

The resulting WAR is placed into the local dist directory. Deploy and enjoy.
