About this repository

This is the source code repository for the USPTO UI Design Library. The site is powered by Jekyll, a static site generator that plays well with Github Pages.

Building & running locally

Using Vagrant

With Vagrant and Virtualbox installed, do:

vagrant up

Once that's done, which will take a while the first time through, do:

vagrant ssh
cd /vagrant

Now, skip ahead to Running the documentation.

Not using Vagrant

You will need to install Jekyll. You will also need to install Node.js. Node.js powers the front-end build and dependency management tools Grunt and Bower.

Once Jekyll and Node.js are installed, ensure you have Grunt and Bower installed globally with:

npm install grunt-cli -g
npm install bower -g

Then install the project's dependencies with:

npm install
bower install

Running the documentation

This project can be built with SASS(Beta) or LESS. The SASS assets are currently in beta and you may encounter minor correctable visual bugs.

To build the front-end assets (LESS/CSS/JS) with:

grunt build

(Beta) To build the front-end assets (SASS/CSS/JS) with:

grunt buildSass

Note: The SASS files require your project to install Bootstrap Sass with NPM. The SASS files are looking for a 'node_modules' folder.

Run the project with Jekyll:

jekyll serve

This starts Jekyll, which compiles the markdown files into static html files, starts a server for you to view the documentation at, as well as watches for changes and recompiles.

Distribution Builds

After running grunt build and jekyll build, you will have a _site folder that contains the entire static site and resources.
