This is a starter template for a Docsy jekyll theme, based on the Beautiful Docsy that renders with Hugo. This version is intended for native deployment on GitHub pages. The original Apache License is included.
The site is intended for purely documentation, so while the front page banner is useful for business or similar, this author (@vsoch) preferred to have the main site page go directly to the Documentation view. Posts are still provided via a feed.
You can clone the repository right to where you want to host the docs:
git clone https://github.com/vsoch/docsy-jekyll.git docs cd docs
To edit configuration values, customize the _config.yml.
To add pages, write them into the pages folder.
You define urls based on the
permalink attribute in your pages,
and then add them to the navigation by adding to the content of _data/toc.myl.
The top navigation is controlled by _data/navigation.yml
Depending on how you installed jekyll:
jekyll serve # or bundle exec jekyll serve
NOTE: If the above serve command throws an error saying
require': cannot load such file -- webrick (LoadError) try to run
bundle add webrick to automatically add the webrick gem to your Gemfile, or manually add
gem "webrick" line to the Gemfile and then run the serve command again.
Note that the docker-compose.yml file is using the jekyll/jekyll:3.8 image. If you want to make your build more reproducible, you can specify a particular version for jekyll (tag). Note that at the development time of writing this documentation, the latest was tag 4.0.0, and it had a bug that prevented the server from deploying.
If you are deploying a container to production, you should remove the line to mount the bundles directory to the host in the docker-compose.yml. Change:
volumes: - "./:/srv/jekyll" - "./vendor/bundle:/usr/local/bundle" # remove "./vendor/bundle:/usr/local/bundle" volume when deploying in production
volumes: - "./:/srv/jekyll"
This additional volume is optimal for development so you can cache the bundle dependencies, but should be removed for production.
Once your docker-compose to download the base container and bring up the server:
docker-compose up -d
You can then open your browser to http://localhost:4000 to see the server running.
