This is the source code implementing the ocaml.org website. Information here is relevant only to developers and content contributors. End-users of the website should simply visit the website, which is hosted at ocaml.org.
Note: if you just want to edit a page you do not need to follow the instructions below. Simply click on the pen in the top right corner of the page and you will be redirected to that page on GitHub where you can edit it and submit your changes without leaving your browser.
Dependencies can be installed by running
make deps, which runs the
necessary OPAM commands. See the
opam file for more information
on the required packages.
Note this is the only purpose of the
opam file. This repository
doesn't provide any resources intended for use in other projects, so
it is not provided as a package in any opam repository.
In addition to the above
opam packages, it is expected that the
following programs are available:
- GNU make
The site consists only of static pages, so it can be built and run entirely on a local machine without dependencies on external file or database servers. Simply run:
make -j for a faster build on multicore machines.
NB: you might need to limit the number of forks e.g
make -j 8
This will generate a new folder
ocaml.org that contains the full
website. Note that building the site will attempt to connect to the
Internet to download the news and latest email conversations. As
make clean to delete the files generated by the
site — Main content of the site. Most files are in Markdown syntax
and converted to HTML by the build scripts.
template — Templates governing the overall look and feel of the
site. These are applied to the pages within site/ when
the site is built. References to templates within site
pages should be of the form
because the build script assumes this directory
script — Scripts used to build the site.
For general discussion about the site's implementation, you can post to the infrastructure mailing list.
