This is a Gatsby site.

The develop branch is merged to production weekly (unless we need to do a release sooner than that).

The main branch is continuously deployed to production.

Local Dependency Setup


Note: Dependencies differ for work on the old-develop branch. If you need to work on old-develop, please see the README file after checking out that branch. This is uncommon.

Setup Steps


We recommend using Homebrew to install and manage packages on a MacOS.

  • Install Homebrew:

    $ ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"
  • Install npm:

    $ brew install npm
  • Set your Node.js version to 12

    $ npm install -g n
    $ n 12.16.1



Local Repository Setup

Note: When working on Windows, you may need to run Command Prompt or PowerShell as an Administrator.

Note: When working on Mac or Linux, you may need to run some commands using "sudo."

  • Clone the SendGrid Docs Repo

    • SSH:

      $ git clone [email protected]:sendgrid/docs.git
    • HTTPS:

      $ git clone
  • Go to your docs directory

    $ cd docs
  • Switch to develop branch to make changes

    $ git checkout develop
  • Install the Gatsby CLI

    $ npm install -g gatsby-cli
  • Install npm package dependencies

    $ npm ci
  • Build the local site

    • With the Gatsby CLI installed globally, you can run:
      $ gatsby develop
    • Alternatively, you can run:
      $ npm run develop
    • Either of the above commands should start a hot-reloading development environment accessible at localhost:8000
