US Digital Service Website

This repo is for our public-facing site, which is hosted on https://usds.gov. This site is the main funnel for USDS recruiting and outreach.

The site is built on the U.S. Web Design Standards and uses Jekyll to generate static pages.

Instructions for rookies learning how to edit the website can be found here.

Setup

  1. If you're using a Mac, install homebrew (see http://brew.sh/)
  2. After installing git (brew install git), cd to the directory where you want to check-out the site, and then clone it (git clone https://github.com/usds/website.git)
  3. Install rvm (\curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | sudo bash -s stable), make your current user a member of the rvm group, and then install a new version of ruby (rvm install 2.3.1)
  4. Install the bundler gem, then use bundler to install other project dependencies (gem install bundler && bundle install)

Running

  1. In the directory you checked out the website into, run jekyll serve to start the webserver
  2. Navigate to http://localhost:4000 in your browser to see your changes
