About

On my personal blog, I write my personal opinions about news and current issues. I also write about technology a lot. I also used to run a tech blog which can be found at tech.michaelbateman.ca. I usually write my posts for my blog during English class when there is a writing period.


Development Guide

If you want to clone the repository and work on the project, please follow these instructions exactly.

You will need the following to run this project:

  • Git
  • Ruby
  • Jekyll

  • Most modern computers come with Git installed. If you do not have it installed, you can download it at https://git-scm.com/downloads.

    You will also need to download Ruby. Most modern Mac's come with Ruby pre-installed but if you do not have it, you can download it at https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/.

    Installing Jekyll is very simple. To do that, you need to open a command prompt and type the following.

    Note - To install Jekyll you must have already installed Ruby.

    Note - Do not type the $ as it is a reminder that it is a command, to be entered on the command line.

    To clone the repository, type in the following:

    $ git clone https://github.com/michael-bateman/blog.michaelbateman.ca

    Now, navigate to the directory by typing:

    $ cd blog.michaelbateman.ca

    Now, you need to serve Jekyll to start the server:

    $ jekyll serve

    Note: If you would like to serve the port on a different one than port 4000 type the following:

    $ jekyll serve --port <port_no>

    Now, the program should work!
