Website - Revision Testing
Testing your revisions is really important, as when you launch a test server, you’ll know immediately if you broke something (and potentially what you broke, as well).
This guide is written for macOS and can be loosely applied to Linux as well. If you use Windows, you’re on your own.
You’ll need Homebrew installed before going any further. Once you’ve installed it, you’ll need to install
yarn on your system.
You can do so by running:
brew install node brew install yarn
bridgetown by running:
gem install bridgetown -N
Don’t worry, OneCMS runs on top of Bridgetown’s upstream repository (for now) so you’re all set. In the future, versioning may be handled by a separate gem.
And you’re set. Now you can…
Get going for the first time
First, start by cloning the sladewatkins/website repository from GitHub using
git. Make sure you do this in the parent directory where you’d like the files to be stored.
git clone https://github.com/sladewatkins/website.git
cd to enter the directory you just created.
Then, run the following command to start the internal server included with Bridgetown:
And you now have a replica of this website running at localhost:4000. Use this local server to test your revisions.
