PyCon UK 2016 website

This is the website for PyCon UK. It is hosted via GitHub Pages and will be available at

If you have a suggestion to make, please feel free to create an issue.

We welcome pull requests for improvements! (Please see CONTRIBUTING.rst for details.)


This site uses django-amber. To install django-amber and other dependencies, run pip install -r requirements.txt. django-amber is only known to work with Python 3.5.

You must also install less, and ensure that lessc is available in your PATH.

django-amber builds the site by assembling several components:

  • Pages are found in pages/. News articles are in news/. Other types of content may be added later. Pages may be HTML or Markdown, and contain some YAML metadata. Look at existing pages for examples.
  • Static files are found in media/.
  • Django template for all pages are found in templates/

To build the site, run python buildsite. This pulls together all the components into a set of HTML files in output/.

Alternatively, if you run python serve, django-amber will build the site, serve the built site on port 8000, and watch for changes.

You can test that the site contains no broken links and that the conference name is capitalised correctly (hint, it's "PyCon UK") by running make test.

Travis will test branches, and branches won't get merged without review and passing tests, so dive right in!


The site is hosted as a Project Page on GitHub Pages, and so it is the gh-pages branch of the repository that gets served. django-amber generates the site in the output/ directory, and Travis is configured to push any changes to the output/ directory to this branch. See for details.

This should be done automatically by Travis after it has built the master branch, but in case this does not happen, somebody with commit access to the repository can run make deploy.

When setting up Travis to run this initially you must provide an OAuth token for authentication in the GH_TOKEN env var. To do this create a Personal Access Token on GitHub then create the GH_TOKEN key pair on the Travis settings page.

Note: this is tied to a single user on GitHub, however any other GitHub user with valid permissions can replace the key on Travis.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
