The Rust blog

Build Status

This is the blog of the Rust Programming Language.

It's implemented as a small static site generator, that's deployed to GitHub Pages via Travis.


To build the site locally:

> git clone
> cd
> cargo run

You could do it in release mode if you'd like, but it's pretty fast in debug.

From there, the generated HTML will be in a site directory. You can use any web server to check it out in your browser:

> cd site
> python3 -m http.server

The site is now available at

If you need to preview the site from another machine, pass the host's address via --bind. For example, if running on

> cd site
> python3 -m http.server --bind

The site is now available at

(As a short-cut: If you pass --bind, the server will be reachable at all of the host's IP addresses.)
