HoneyTrap Development

Staging Your Documentation Changes

This page shows how to stage content that you want to contribute to the HoneyTrap documentation.

Before you begin

Create a fork of the HoneyTrap documentation repository as described in Creating a Documentation Pull Request.

Staging a pull request

When you create a pull request, either against the master or <vnext> branch, your changes are staged in a custom subdomain on Netlify so that you can see your changes in rendered form before the pull request is merged.

  1. In your GitHub account, in your new branch, submit a pull request to the honeytrap/honeytrap-docs repository. This opens a page that shows the status of your pull request.

  2. Scroll down to the list of automated checks. Click Show all checks. Wait for the deploy/netlify check to complete. To the right of deploy/netlify, click Details. This opens a staging site where you can see your changes.

Staging locally without Docker

  1. Install Ruby 2.2 or later.

  2. Install RubyGems.

  3. Verify that Ruby and RubyGems are installed:

    gem --version
  4. Install the GitHub Pages package, which includes Jekyll:

    gem install github-pages
  5. Clone your fork to your local development machine.

  6. In the root of your cloned repository, enter this command to start a local web server:

    jekyll serve
  7. View your staged content at http://localhost:4000.

Note: If you do not want Jekyll to interfere with your other globally installed gems, you can use bundler:

gem install bundler
bundle install
bundler exec jekyll serve

Regardless of whether you use bundler or not, your copy of the site will then be viewable at: http://localhost:4000
