Pedestal Docs Build Status

This is an open-source repository of documentation for the Pedestal libraries.

Building the Site

The site is built using JBake. JBake 2.5.0 is required. Earlier versions don't work.

To install JBake 2.5.0-SNAPSHOT:

  • curl -O (or download this file with your browser)
  • unzip -o
  • Add jbake-2.5.0-SNAPSHOT/bin to your system PATH

To build the site, you need side-by-side checkouts of Pedestal and Pedestal Docs.

Retrieve Pedestal and switch to a publicly-available version:

git clone pedestal
cd pedestal
git checkout 0.5.1
cd .. # back out to the parent directory

To build the site:

Retrieve the content:

  • git clone pedestal-docs (or your own fork)
  • cd pedestal-docs

Generate the pages:

  • jbake - this will create the static site in the output directory
  • Run jbake -s to serve these pages at http://localhost:8820/index

To autogenerate the pages on change, we can use entr.

On Debian style Linux, install it with sudo apt install entr.

On Mac OS X with homebrew, install it with brew install entr

  • Install the command entr.
  • find content templates assets | entr jbake

Only Needed When Pedestal Changes

Create the autogenerated material

  • boot index-samples
  • script/
