  Website Based on Jekyll

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the website up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes.


Jekyll static site generator docs.

  1. Install a full Ruby development environment

  2. Install bundler gems

     gem install bundler
  3. Fork the project repository, then clone your fork.

     git clone
  4. Change into the project directory:

  5. Use bundler to fetch all required gems in their respective versions

     bundle install
  6. Build the site and make it available on a local server

     bundle exec jekyll serve
  7. Now browse to http://localhost:4000

If you encounter any unexpected errors during the above, please refer to the troubleshooting page or the requirements page, as you might be missing development headers or other prerequisites.

For more regarding the use of Jekyll, please refer to the Jekyll Step by Step Tutorial.

Deploying to Github Pages

The website deployment is automatically performed by GitHub Actions (when commits are pushed to the develop branch). If for some reason you need to deploy from your local machine, follow these instructions:

  1. Install the act executable to run GitHub Actions locally
  2. Run act -s GITHUB_TOKEN=<GITHUB_TOKEN>, where <GITHUB_TOKEN> needs to be replaced with a token that allows you to push to the repository.

Writing a blog

To write a blog:

  • create an author entry in _data/authors.yaml
    • emailhash is used to fetch your picture form the Gravatar service
  • create an blog entry under _posts -the file name is yyyy-mm-dd-slug.adoc
  • tags should be used with some care as an archive page is created for of them. Below are some basic rules to try follow:
    • quarkus-release used for Quarkus release blogs
    • announcement used for general announcement with some impact.
    • extension used for blogs related to a specific extension.
    • user-story used for stories from users/companies adopting Quarkus.
    • development-tips used for blogs with tips to develop using Quarkus or Quarkus itself.
    • add a tech specific, like kafka, if your post has a significant mention/relevance to that technology.
    • tags is space separated list tags:extension grpc
    • tags must be in lowercase
  • it's in asciidoc format, there is an example as shown with 2019-06-05-quarkus-and-web-ui-development-mode.adoc
    • Be aware that the date attribute in the asciidoc preamble defines when the article will be published. Use a present date while writing your article to test locally, then switch to the actual target date before submitting.
  • send a pull request against the develop branch and voilà


Please read for details on our code of conduct, and the process for submitting pull requests to us.
