# Ruby version must be >= 2.0.0.
ruby --version
# Install bundler for dependency management:
gem install bundler
# Fetch dependencies:
bundle install
# Start server:
bundle exec jekyll serve
# Get the most recent version of 'github-pages' gem:
bundle update

Jekyll Plugins

The only supported plugins are those that come with the github-pages gem.

Liquid Syntax

Writing interactive documentation

When contributing documentation, put each individual page in the _documentation collection as a markdown file.

If your documentation contains code, you should write the code in a separate file, which you put into a sub-folder of the _documentation folder. By convention, this folder should have the same name as your markdown file.

To include code on the page, you can use the following jekyll code:

{% include_relative path/to/your/code.js %}

Testing the tutorial examples

The tutorial examples are tested by Travis. If there are failures...:

  1. Make sure the output in the iframes looks right.
  2. If that doesn't help, run the qunit.html locally.
  3. If that doesn't help, run selenium to run qunit locally.

(Conversely, if the iframe doesn't look right, but tests are passing, strengthen the tests.)
