The RailsBridge Documentation Project

Build Status

Overview

This is a Sinatra app, deployed at http://docs.railsbridge.org. The RailsBridge documentation project is home to a few subprojects, including the RailsBridge installfest instructions, which leads students through the various complicated setup instructions for getting Ruby, Rails, Git, etc. installed on their computer (whatever combination of computer, OS, and version they happened to bring to the workshop!), as well as the RailsBridge 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 rails curriculum can be found under ROOT/sites/en/intro-to-rails. (The "en" means "English" -- see "Locales" below.)

These files can be in any of these formats:

(If multiple files exist with the same base name, .step is preferred over .md, and .md over .mw.)

Usage

bundle install
bundle exec rake run

If the above fails (say, because rerun doesn't work on your system), try

rackup

Then open http://localhost:9292 in a web browser, and verify that you can navigate the installfest slides.

Locales

To serve sites from "sites/en", use bundle exec rake run or a vanilla deploy.

To server sites from another locale (say, "es" or Spanish)...

Run Localized Site Locally

$ SITE_LOCALE=es bundle exec rake run

The server listens on 0.0.0.0:9292.

Now you have to set up subdomain mappings for the site. If you have Pow, run:

$ echo 9292 > ~/.pow/railsbridge # works for any subdomain

If you don't have Pow, add the following line to /etc/hosts:

127.0.0.1 es.railsbridge.dev # works for single subdomain

Now you can access http://es.railsbridge.dev:9292 for debugging.

Running on a Server

Just make sure the server responds to a locale subdomain: http://es.railsbridge.org

Temporary Testing

Use a locale or l parameter: 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.
