Running OCamlverse Locally
OCamlverse is built with Jekyll, a popular static site generator that originally powered GitHub Pages.
If you want to run OCamlverse (e.g. to preview some changes you’ve made) all you need to do is:
- Install Ruby (Jekyll is written in Ruby)
- Run the following shell commands in OCamlverse’s source folder:
$ bundle $ bundle exec jekyll serve
At this point you can point your browser to http://127.0.0.1:4000 and view the locally running site.
Note: If you are using Ruby version 3 or above, you will need to add the
webrick gem to the Gemfile prior to running
