Building the website
A bit of Git, a bit a Ruby and you will get your local version of ceylon-lang.org served.
- get Git
- get Ruby 1.8
- if on Mac OS, get XCode (needed for native gems)
Install Awestruct, a Ruby based site generator.
gem install awestruct #or sudo gem install awestruct
The Awestruct version known to work is 0.2.3
sudo gem install awestruct --version 0.2.3
Get the website source from GitHub.
git clone email@example.com:ceylon/ceylon-lang.org.git
Serve the site locally
- Go in your
- Open your browser to http://localhost:4242
Any change will be automatically picked up except for
and sometimes new blog entries.
How to also include the spec and ceylondoc pages
./build-site.sh. This will clone or refresh the spec, language and compiler repos
_tmp and build the appropriate artifacts before pushing them to the site.
If you have already run
./build-site.sh and don't wish to rebuild the spec and ceylondoc,
to simply copy them to the website structure. This is much faster.
If your changes are not visible...
If for whatever reason you make some changes which don't show up, you can completely regenerate the site:
awestruct -d --force
If serving the site is slow...
On Linux, serving the file may be atrociously slow (something to do with WEBRick).
Use the following alternative:
- Go in your
awestruct --auto -P development
- In parallel, go to the
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 4242
You should be back to millisecond serving :)
