RITlug's current website.

Updating Meeting Times/Places

Edit _config.yml and update the settings "ritlug-time", "ritlug-place", and "ritlug-day". These are used (and should be used) everywhere on the website the meeting time and place are referenced so that they can be updated in one place.

Javascript and CSS Patches

There's a couple of patches to the Javascript and CSS. They are:

Header Height

The default header in Material Design Lite is too large on desktop so we've shrank it. If you replace the CSS file or otherwise want to change the header height, do the following:

  1. Open css/material-brown-orange.css (adjust as necessary if using a different color scheme)
  2. Search for .mdl-layout__header-row. It should be the second result.
  3. Find and change the height. Default is 64px. We're currently using 32px.

Make header links open pages

The default Javascript in MDL <1.0.6 expects the links at the top of the page to open different tabs. This website is built with pages, not tabs. There's a patch in the event handler that enables opening separate pages. Modern versions of MDL do not require this as they already have the patch implemented.

Developing and Testing

Test the site by installing jekyll:

sudo (apt-get install|pacman -S|...) ruby
sudo gem install jekyll

Then running

jekyll serve

in the cloned repository. The site will be available on localhost:4000.

See https://github.com/RITlug/runbook/blob/master/the-website.md for more details.
