whitehall
whitehall is a Ruby on Rails content management application for content published by government departments and agencies.
Running the Application
Startup using govuk-docker.
There are two different views within this App, a Publishing view and a Site view. Once running, whitehall does not have an index, some suggested starting pages are below:
Publishing view:

Site view:
http://whitehall-frontend.dev.gov.uk/government/get-involved
Some pages will need data locally to display, whitehall uses mySQL. You’ll need to gain relevant permissions to access data from AWS
