Build site

This site began with the repo from the Bedford lab:

git clone https://github.com/blab/blotter.git

We made some modifications.

  1. Vertical instead of horiztonal entries on the home page.
  2. Software is just like Papers; we don't use the fancy github integration.
  3. Blog is actually Events from Bedford's version and we place it on the home page
  4. We added several categories.
  5. Uptodate fontawesome nomenclature.

Then install necessary Ruby dependencies by running bundle install from within the blotter directory. After this, the site can be be built with:

bundle exec jekyll build

(If you are getting errors at this stage, it may be due to your version of bundle. Try gem uninstall bundler + gem install bundler -v 1.13.1.)

To view the site, run bundle exec jekyll serve and point a browser to http://localhost:4000/. More information on Jekyll can be found here.

To include projects, preprocessing scripts are necessary to clone project repos and update Jekyll metadata. This can be accomplished with:

ruby _scripts/update-and-preprocess.rb

Then jekyll build works as normal.

Contribute

Blog posts just require YAML top matter that looks something like:

---
layout: post
title: Newton Institute presentation
author: Trevor Bedford
link: http://www.newton.ac.uk/programmes/IDD/seminars/2013082213301.html
image: /images/blog/transmission.png
---

The layout, title and author tags are required, while link and image are optional. Just save a Markdown file with this top matter as something like blog/_posts/2013-08-27-newton-institute.md, where 2013-08-27 is the date of the post and newton-institute is the short title. This short title is used in the URL of the post, so this becomes blog/newton-institute/, so the short title should be long enough and unique enough not to cause conflicts with other posts.
