The PHPBridge Documentation Project
Lovingly Based on RailsBridge
Thanks to the amazing work of the volunteers behind RailsBridge and their decision to release all of their content under a Creative Common (CC-BY) license, we are able to create PHPBridge by standing on their shoulders and building up.
This is a Sinatra app, deployed at http://docs.railsbridge.org. The PHPBridge documentation project is home to a few subprojects, including the PHPBridge installfest instructions, which leads students through the various complicated setup instructions for getting PHP, MySQL, Git, etc. installed on their computer (whatever combination of computer, OS, and version they happened to bring to the workshop!), as well as the PHPBridge workshop "Suggestotron" curriculum.
Each subproject (a "site") comprises files stored under the "sites" directory; for instance, the installfest instructions are located at ROOT/sites/en/installfest, while the intro PHP curriculum can be found under ROOT/sites/en/intro-to-php.
These files can be in any of these formats:
(If multiple files exist with the same base name,
.step is preferred over
bundle install rake run
If the above fails (say, because
rerun doesn't work on your system), try
Then open http://localhost:9292 in a web browser, and verify that you can navigate the installfest slides.
To serve sites from "sites/en", use
rake run or a vanilla deploy.
To server sites from another locale (say, "es" or Spanish)...
- Locally, use the SITE_LOCALE environment variable:
SITE_LOCALE=es rake run
- On a server, make the server respond to a locale subdomain:
- Or to temporarily test, use a
http://docs.railsbridge.org/?l=es(note that in this mode, links are not rewritten, so if they fail you will have to manually add the parameter again)
