Setting up a local HubSpot Environment

The goal here is to set up a local HubSpot server so that we can do ongoing development and have a sandbox environment without messing with our main site.

Thankfully, HubSpot is pretty good about supporting documentation, and a good chunk of what you need for design work can be found here.

Start by making sure you have the latest version of Java running on your machine.

Then download and install the package. Here’s the link on GitHub to make things a bit more convenient.

Once you have the files, you can run the server from the terminal prompt: cd local-hubl-server.

or browse through your files to the “bin” folder and select “local-hubl-server”.

Next you’ll want to establish a master style sheet for your HubSpot design, and a style sheet for individual modules.
