Testing Changes Locally:

  1. If not already installed, download and install the LTS version of Node.js from here.
  2. To build and run the project locally, execute the following commands:
npm install
npm run build
npm run start

Local Development

$ npm run start

This command launches a local development server and opens a browser window. Changes are typically reflected instantly without requiring a server restart.

Build Process

$ npm run build

This command generates static content within the build directory, suitable for hosting via any static content service.


To deploy the website, compile the project into a deployable package:

$ npm run build

This will create a build directory within your project folder. You can then deploy the contents of this directory to your web server.

How to write a new Blog?

Adding posts

What file name to use?

DocuHub will extract a YYYY-MM-DD date from many patterns such as or YYYY/MM/DD/ This enables you to easily group blog posts by year, by month, or to use a flat structure.

Example (with Metadata/Front matter)

To publish in the blog, create a Markdown file within the blog directory. For example, create a file at /blog/

A whole bunch of exploration to follow.

What is Metadata/Front Matter

The front matter is useful to add more metadata to your blog post, for example, author information, but Docusaurus will be able to infer all necessary metadata without the front matter.

Front matter is provided at the very top of the file, enclosed by three dashes ---. The content is parsed as YAML.
