Welcome to W3Develops' open source codebase

What is W3Develops?

W3Develops is a community where like minded individuals can learn new technologies and build together to level up their knowledge and have projects to showcase to further their career. This website has many features and is continueously adding more such as a programmer meetup tracker, online and in person meetups, podcasts, video walkthroughs, study groups, building groups, a job board, internships, a forum, a social network, and more.

The goal of W3Develops is to provide a simple learning, collaborating, networking website for programmers.

It is not "industry quality", with an emphasis on allowing the novice user to be able to contribute to the code.

It is a work in progress and is not feature complete at this point, however it is usable as an educational tool.

W3Develops has the following constraint:

It's free so resources are sometimes stretched.

Download and Installation

To begin contributing to this website, choose one of the following options to get started:


Basic Usage

After downloading, simply edit the HTML and CSS files included with the template in your favorite text editor to make changes. These are the only files you need to worry about, you can ignore everything else! To preview the changes you make to the code, you can open the index.html file in your web browser.

Advanced Usage

After installation, run npm install and then run npm start which will open up a preview of the template in your default browser, watch for changes to core template files, and live reload the browser when changes are saved. You can view the gulpfile.js to see which tasks are included with the dev environment.

Gulp Tasks

  • gulp the default task that builds everything
  • gulp watch browserSync opens the project in your default browser and live reloads when changes are made
  • gulp css compiles SCSS files into CSS and minifies the compiled CSS
  • gulp js minifies the themes JS file
  • gulp vendor copies dependencies from node_modules to the vendor directory

You must have npm and Gulp installed globally on your machine in order to use these features.
