Build Status is the ultimate resource for developers of all backgrounds to learn, create, and solve on the web. It's meant to not only educate developers, but help them apply what they've learned to any site they work on, be it personal or business.

Note: this repo contains the written content for The client-side JS and server are not yet open source.

Authoring content

Our wiki provides docs on authoring guides and codelabs.

Get started

Clone the repo.

git clone

Install dependencies.

npm ci

⚠️ Important: We're currently in the process of open sourcing our CSS. Unfortunately the above command will only work for folks who are part of our team and have access to the styles submodule. We plan to resolve this in the second half of May. Thank you for your patience! 🙇‍♂

Start a local server to preview the site.

Changes to assets will rebuild the site. Refresh to see changes.

npm run dev

Next, open http://localhost:8080/ to see the site locally. The preview server allows you to see how the content will look on the production site, but it's not a true staging server. For example, features like search and JS components may not work or be entirely broken on the local preview.

Fetch latest styles (optional)

You won't need to do this if this is your first time installing the repo because styles will be fetched in the postinstall phase. But if you'd ever like to grab the latest styles you can run this command:

npm run styles


Stage the site to App Engine. This requires you have the gcloud command installed on your system.

npm run stage

☝️ You'll need to be a member of the App Engine project to run this command.

Preview the site at

Tip: 👩‍🚀

If you'd like to stage the site but don't want to replace what's already on the current staging site, you can manually run:

npm run build
gcloud app deploy --no-promote

This will generate a unique URL for your staged content.


The easiest way to debug the site is to add a debugger statement to .eleventy.js, then run npm run debug, and go to chrome://inspect to attach to the running process.
