The public-facing website for The Nottingham New Theatre, a student-run theatre at the University of Nottingham. This site was launched in March 2019 to replace its Wordpress-based predecessor with a more modern look and feel, powered by Jekyll.

For documentation on how to edit the site see the repo wiki. The TL;DR is that most content editing can be done quickly and easily using Forestry. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you need access to do that. Otherwise, editing can be handled through pull requests.
You can build this site locally by downloading the repo and building it using Jekyll. The following steps will work on macOS, Linux and Windows using WSL. Using Windows without WSL will require fiddling with Ruby binaries.
Run the following commands in a command line:
bundle config path vendor/bundle
bundle exec jekyll server
This will then start the Jekyll server which can be reached at http://localhost:4000/
Alternatively, you can get this up and running with Docker.
To run a development version in docker, use this command
docker run --rm --volume="$PWD:/srv/jekyll" -p=4000:4000 -it jekyll/jekyll:3.8 jekyll server
Then open http://localhost:4000 in your browser
