The Rubinius blog uses Jekyll and is integrated with the website and documentation. We encourage and appreciate guest blog posts about your experiences using or developing Rubinius.
The preferred format for blog posts is Markdown. However, if you have special formatting needs, the post can be written in HTML directly.
Clone Rubinius repository as that is where the website and posts are stored.
git clone https://github.com/rubinius/rubinius.git
To get started, ensure you have the
jekyll gems installed.
rbx gem install jekyll kramdown
Now go to the posts directory
Create a file in the console using the filename format
touch "%(date +"%Y-%m-%d")-perma-link-title.markdown"
Write your brilliant post.
cat /dev/random > <<the file post>> # :-p
Run jekyll to compile the website, including your post.
cd ../web/ rbx -S jekyll build
Create a commit of all the changes in the
cd ../ git add web/ git commit -m "Wrote a blog post on ....."
Submit a patch, pull request, or if you have commit rights, push the commit to the master branch.
Tell us that there is a new blog post. We may have some feedback for you before publishing.
