Arduino Library List

This is the code repository that generates the arduinolibraries.info website.

It is a statically generated website.

The steps to generate the site are:

  1. Download the library_index.json file from arduino.cc.
  2. Convert the JSON file into indexes that make it easy to generate the site
  3. Generate the HTML files for the homepage and each of the sections
  4. Generate a sitemap listing all the files that were generated
  5. Upload the files to the web server

Development

The scripts that generate the website are written in Ruby. You may need to install a recent version of ruby of my computer before you can run the scripts.

First make sure you have Bundler installed:

$ gem install bundler

Then install all the dependencies:

$ bundle install

To build a copy of the website on your local machine run:

$ rake build

This will download the required data, and generate all the HTML files.

You can then run a web-server locally on your machine to view the site:

$ rake server

And then open the following URL in your browser: http://localhost:3000/

The files that define what the pages look like are in the views folder.
