Testing Your Changes

Note: Simply changing the Markdown files within /content is enough to make contributions or changes to this repo. The following is only for testing.

If you want to test out your changes to ensure the final generation is correct, you can install the nanoc gem and kramdown gem which is used for Markdown formatting.

view available nanoc commands with:

nanoc -h

Nanoc compiles the site into static files within the output folder. Run the compile with:

nanoc compile

You can use MAMP or a similar setup to view the resulting files or you can install the adsf gem which will work with nanoc. Then you can use:

nanoc view
open http://localhost:3000

Updating the live site

The live site lives in the gh-pages branch. For convenience the gh-pages branch has been added to the main repo as a Git submodule.

To update the live site, update master locally and run nanoc compile. The latest generated output will be in /output/Open-Reader-API/.

Move into /gh-pages folder, clear it's content with git rm -r * and copy the output from the parent folder (cp -r ../output/Open-Reader-API/ .). Add all files and commit the changes.

Pushing the gh-branch will update the live site. After a successful push, don't forget to update the master branch so that it's pointer to the submodule will have the proper commit hash stored.
