Jekyll content for, the web site of the Philly Area Scala Enthusiasts (PHASE).

Main content

The main content is in index.html. BUT: Do not edit the section between <!-- @start talks@ --> and <!-- @end talks@ -->. That section is updated by the build process.

Adding talks

The talks are specified in talks.yml. The talks element is a list of objects with the following fields:

  • title (required): The talk title
  • speaker (required): The speaker
  • date (required): The date of the talk, in yyyy-mm-dd format.
  • meeting_link (optional): The URL of the talk's meeting page.
  • video (optional): URL of the video, if there is one.
  • slides (optional): Contains two sub-fields:
    • link: URL of the presentation, if available.
    • comment (optional): One-line comment about slides (e.g., "PDF", "HTML", etc.)
  • code (optional): URL of code (e.g., GitHub repo) associated with the talk, if available.

Once you've updated talks.yml, you must rebuild.

Tweaking CSS

Don't edit the assets/css/main.css that was unpacked with the Pixelarity theme. Instead, override styles by editing the css/custom.css file.


NOTE: If you'd rather not install all this stuff in your local environment, you can just install Docker, and then use this Docker image, which contains everything you need. Just install the file in that directory, and replace rake with drake in the instructions below.

To build, you need ruby (2.6) and bundle. Run bundle install, to get the rest of the required gems. Then, run:

rake build

to build the site with Jekyll. You cannot just run jekyll build, because the Rakefile contains some preprocessing tasks that must run before jekyll is invoked.

After building, check in any changed files (such as the index.html file).


Before publishing, verify that everything looks good. Run

rake serve

to build the site and run jekyll in server mode. Then, connect your browser to http://localhost:4000 and give the site the once-over.

The site is hosted on GitHub Pages. To publish, just push your changes to the GitHub repo (or issue a PR from your fork, and one of the maintainers will do it.)
