Setting up the Jekyll environment

Using Docker

We include files for Docker to run Jekyll in a separate container. This allows you to not having to install anything apart from Docker on your computer.

Running the Dockerfile

  • Install Docker
  • Open Command Prompt and navigate to this directory
      cd <ACRE2_directory>/docs
  • Build and run the container
      docker-compose up
  • Navigate to http://localhost:4000


Windows (CMD)

Debian / Bash on Ubuntu on Windows

sudo might be required when using below commands.

  • Open Bash and navigate to this directory

      cd <ACRE2_directory>/docs
  • Install make, gcc and nodejs

      apt-get install make gcc nodejs
  • Install ruby2.3, rbuy2.3-dev and ruby-switch

      apt-add-repository ppa:brightbox/ruby-ng
      apt-get update
      apt-get install ruby2.3 ruby2.3-dev ruby-switch
  • Set Ruby version

      ruby-switch --set ruby2.3
  • Install bundler and jekyll

      gem install bundler jekyll
  • Install required gems through bundler

      bundle install
  • In case of sticky folder error during bundle install, execute the following to fix permissions

      find ~/.bundle/cache -type d -exec chmod 0755 {} +


  • Run Jekyll through bundler

      bundle exec jekyll serve --future --config _config_dev.yml

    Use --incremental for small changes (not adding/removing files).
    Use --force_polling on Bash on Ubuntu on Windows due to a bug preventing watching.
