Background

Bridgetown started life as a fork of the granddaddy of static site generators, Jekyll. Spearheaded by Portland-based web studio Whitefusion and with a brand new set of project goals and a future roadmap, our pledge is to ramp up adding new features at a steady and predictable pace, grow the open source community around the project, and ensure a lively future for a top-tier Ruby-based static site generator moving forward.

Testing Locally

If you'd like to hack away on Bridgetown directly, you'll need to clone this repo and ensure the test suite passes. Note that this is a "monorepo", meaning that multiple Rubygem codebases are stored within a single repo.

$ git clone git@github.com:bridgetownrb/bridgetown.git
$ cd bridgetown
$ bundle # install development gems
$ bundle exec rake # run the full test suite

After making changes in bridgetown-core, if you want to run a single unit test, you can use the command:

$ script/test test/test_foo.rb

If you are only updating a Cucumber .feature file, you can use the command:

$ script/cucumber features/foo.feature

Both script/test and script/cucumber can be run without arguments to run its entire respective suite.

To switch one of your website repos to using the local gem, add the local gem path to the site's Gemfile as follows:

gem "bridgetown-core", path: "/path/to/bridgetown/bridgetown-core"
