Some development teams are completely disconnected from the public internet, for security reasons. Engineers in these teams can still access the documentation on Sigasi Insights, using one of the procedures below.

Some things will not work if you view this website offline:

  • Video’s are hosted separately, and will not be available
  • External links will be broken
  • The comments sections use an external service and will not be available

Local build with Hugo

You can generate the Sigasi insights pages locally:

  1. Download the source code of the Sigasi Insights website from GitHub: https://github.com/sigasi/sigasi_insights
  2. Make sure you have Hugo installed
  3. Generate the site
    • For local use, run hugo server. Visit http://localhost:1313 to see the documentation.
    • For web hosting, generate the html code using hugo and copy the public folder to your internal server.

Alternative

While a local installation does not require much work, it’s also possible to print the manual to a PDF. For this we have created the single page Sigasi Studio Manual.
