This website is the core of the “Public Money, Public Code” campaign. It is based on Hugo, a modern static website generator.
Since the page is still in an early draft version, the page hasn’t been released officially yet. However, you can see the current status of the
public folder on pmpc.mehl.mx. Please do not spread this URL.
In order to modify the website, you need
git installed on your computer. If Hugo isn’t available in your package manager, obtain it from its official website. The latest Hugo version is 0.19, older versions haven’t been tested. Please make sure that you use an as recent version as possible to avoid errors.
First of all, you’ll need an account on git.fsfe.org. With an FSFE account (FSFE Fellowship/supporter/volunteer) you can simply login with your normal username and password. If you don’t have an FSFE account yet, please contact Erik, Jonas or Max about it. Without an account, you can download this repository but you won’t be able to push modifications to this repository.
As part of the campaign team you can get full write access to this repository. Please contact one of pmpc’s admins to give your account the necessary privileges.
The most comfortable way for you to use Git is to use SSH keys for authentication. They won’t require you to type in your username and password each time. Please read a manual from Github on the usage of SSH keys with their service. Although Github looks a bit different, it may help you understanding the logic. Please replace
git.fsfe.org. However, a short step-by-step list:
ls -al ~/.ssh)
ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C "firstname.lastname@example.org"). Omit typing in a password if you are sure that you can protect your SSH private key. If you set a password, consider using
ssh-agentto avoid having to type in the SSH key’s password each time you use it.
Your Settings > SSH Keys > Add Key.
ssh email@example.com). If you read “Hi there, You’ve successfully authenticated, but Gitea does not provide shell access.”, it’s working!
Then you have to set your git identity and a required default setting for git pushes:
git config --global user.name "John Doe" git config --global user.email firstname.lastname@example.org git config --global push.default simple
Now navigate to a directory on your computer where you want the PMPC website to be stored. In this example, it’s
FSFE/PMPC/website in your user’s directory.
mkdir -p ~/FSFE/PMPC/ # Create the directory if it doesn't exist yet cd ~/FSFE/PMPC/ # go to the newly created PMPC directory git clone email@example.com:pmpc/website.git # clone the website to the folder website
In the newly created folder
pmpc-website you’ll find all source files the website consists of now.
Now we will modify the website a bit, review the changes and push them to the repository to make them available to other users and the live website.
~/FSFE/PMPC/website/) and open a terminal window there. Type in
git pull. This will get the latest changes from the server
CONTRIBUTORS.md, scroll to the very end, and add your name there. No worries, this won’t have any visible effect on the website.
hugo serveron your terminal. You will see a link containing
localhost:1313. Open it and you see a preview of what the website looks like. This will help you to understand whether your changes actually have the effect you wanted.
hugo. This will build the website in its final form to the subfolder
public. Make sure that the output of that command doesn’t contain any errors or warnings. Note that your local built won’t be sent to the server because it builds the website itself.
git statuswhat files have been changed on your side. In this example, you should see the file
CONTRIBUTORS.mdmarked red. This means that the file has been changed but you didn’t mark it as to be pushed to the server yet. If there’re more files listed, make sure that you actually intended to modify these files!
git add CONTRIBUTORS.md. In case you have changed more files, you can also type
git add .to add all files at once. With
git statusyou should see all files marked green now, which means that they’re ready to be committed.
git commit -m "added myself to the contributors list". In the comment after
-myou should always write something meaningful that helps people to understand what you actually did.
git pushto actually upload the modifications to the server.
The website structure is very easy. The most important files and directories are:
config.toml: Headlines, site title, many texts.
data/resources/: Content of the 3-column “resource” boxes which you can hover over and click to see the text.
data/share/: Services where people can share to. Is being used in the “Spread” section and the left-side sharing icons
static/img/share/: Image files for share buttons.
static/css/custom.css: File where all custom CSS code should be written to.
layouts/: HTML structure (scaffold) for the website. Useful if you want to add another section or modify anchor links or CSS classes.
public/: Built files which are used to display the website. Generated by running
The repository will be downloaded and built every 5 minutes to the live website on pmpc.mehl.mx. So please wait a bit until your modifications are visible. It shouldn’t look different from what
hugo server shows you.
