The purpose of the Shift/Pedalpalooza Calendar is to empower citizens to create and view bike events and to spread bike fun.
- hugo v0.37.1
- && the theme "Universal"
- && the content from the legacy shift website
- && Netlify web hosting to serve the content
- && the Netlify CMS
You can see the live site here: https://www.shift2bikes.org
- If you want to change something about the site configuration or theme, pull requests are welcome. Once you create a PR, you can immediately check out a link to the build status and log and a preview of your changes.
- If you only want to edit CONTENT rather than any code or site styling, (including creating new pages), this doc shows how to easily do so without writing code.
Following the below steps you'll have a copy of the site running, including 3 docker containers running nginx, db, and the php server:
- install docker: https://docs.docker.com/get-docker/
- download source code:
git clone https://github.com/shift-org/shift-docs.git
- download additional external modules:
cd shift-docs ; git submodule update --init --recursive
- start shift site:
https://localhost:4443/. If this leads to an SSL error in chrome, you may try flipping this flag: chrome://flags/#allow-insecure-localhost
Note that no changes to the filesystems INSIDE the container should ever be needed; they read from your LOCAL filesystem so updating the local FS will show up in the container (perhaps after a restart). Updating, changing branches, etc can be done with git commands OUTIDE of the container (
git checkout otherbranch or
You can easily run your own copy of the site with these two steps. This could help you do things like theme development, in your own repository, before submitting your finished write-up to us for incorporation.
- fork repo
- deploy on Netlify by linking your forked repo. Included configuration file
netlify.tomlshould mean 0 additional configuration required to get the site running.
If you have trouble with it please file an issue to let us know what you tried and what happened when you did.

The site is run in several docker containers.
Important Project Files
docker container settings
The defined containers (db, nginx, etc) become pingable host names from the other running containers. For example, attached to the nginx container, you can "ping db"
Contains the container specific mappings between host and docker container persistent volumes for example for the node container:
- This is the convenience wrapper that sets up the environment and has various convenience sub-commands to connect to the environment and manipulate it as well. This is how you'll start the project, connect to the database, etc!
- contains environment variables that get loaded and are then available for docker to import. Docker environment variables that will be important are defined separately for each container (see:
envinside an attached docker container to see the variables that made it into the running container.
- these are the credentials to connect to your local instance. You should change them if you host your site allowing public connections!
- these are the local (potential) configuration overrides, that aren't secret
Shift subcommands of interest
- ./shift attach node
nodeis a reference to the named docker container. Note that you want just
phpnot the full image name (
- Attaches to the running docker container in the shift stack
- ./shift up
- If necessary, first builds, and then starts up the docker containers (will also restart if run while the environment is already running.)
- ./shift logs nginx
- Will start tailing the logs for the specified container (nginx in this case)
- multiple container names can be mentioned
- ./shift down
- stops the docker containers
Docker Daemon commands of interest
- docker ps
- lists all of the running process and port information from docker (ex: you can see the postgres service port)
- docker volume ls
- This will show the persistent volumes that docker knows about. The shift project volumes are prefixed with shift_
- The "shift_" docker namespace comes from the shift file: export COMPOSE_PROJECT_NAME="shift"
(fool doesn't think we're using this in 2021! It does not seem to be required these days.)
