Developers Italia

We develop public services, together


Developers Italia is the reference point for the community of developers creating the next generation of digital public services in Italy.

This repository contains the sources of the website. The website is developed using Jekyll and it's currently served through GitHub pages.

A CircleCI job builds the sources and commits the resulting artifacts to GitHub, in the gh-pages branch. The same job is also triggered every night to get the most updated data feeding the website.



We use Docker and docker-compose to bring up the developer environment, just clone the repo and

  1. Copy the .env.example file into .env and modify the environment variables as it suits you. .env.example holds the detailed description of each variable.

    cp .env.example .env
  2. Set the RUNAS variable to your user:

    echo RUNAS=$(id -u):$(id -g) >> .env
  3. Build the container:

    docker-compose up

Wait until the Docker logs explicitly say that the website is served at and navigate to http://localhost:4000 to preview the website.

Jekyll will pick up changes to the Markdown files and recompile them on the fly.

If you change the Gemfile or package.json, you'll need to rebuild the image with:

docker-compose up --build


Both the CircleCI build and the Docker files leverage a Makefile, facilitating the execution of more complex routines. You can have a look at the Makefile to know more about the exact commands used to build the website.
