Open Issues

Take a look at the open issues on Github, to see where you could help.

For example:

Generate & run a local copy

To generate & run a local copy of the website, follow the instructions below.

Dependencies

Install the following software (naming may depends on your distribution):

  • man2html-base
  • python3 (>= 3.3)
  • python3-bs4
  • python3-jinja2
  • python3-markdown (>= 3.3.4)
  • python3-pygments
  • pymdown-extensions

Clone the repo

git clone https://github.com/lxc/linuxcontainers.org

Note: The folder downloads is quite big, so you can skip that folder by using git sparse-checkout & partial clones (The only exception is, when you work on the downloads page).

As a replacement for the missing downloads folder you need to create the following empty folders, before generating the website (otherwise the generator shows an error):

downloads/cgmanager/
downloads/distrobuilder/
downloads/lxc/
downloads/lxcfs/
downloads/lxd/

Generating the website

./generate

Launching the website

After generating the website(above), run these commands(Ubuntu-specific):

cd output
python3 -m http.server 8777

Now you can access the website in your browser by using your local IP address and port:

127.0.0.1:8777

(Alternative) Launching within a container

Inside the container:

Install the dependencies, clone the repo and generate the website (same as above).

After generating the website, run these commands(Ubuntu-specific):

cd output
python3 -m http.server 8777

On the host:

You can now navigate to the site (in a browser of your choice) with the container's IP address, for example:

185.5.3.12:8777
