Apache ActiveMQ Website

This is the repository for the Apache ActiveMQ website, hosted at activemq.apache.org.


Do not change anything under ./content directly. This website is using Jekyll, and the ./src will generate the ./content output. Please read it through this README before you contribute!

How it works

The master branch of this repo contains the source files that are used to generate the HTML that ultimately gets pushed to the site, along with a copy of the generated site output located within the content directory, which is published to the live server using gitpubsub whenever changes are pushed to it.

See the Contributing section below for more.

To Build the site

Before building the site you will need to install Jekyll. The Jekyll site has installation instructions to help get you started.

To build the site from the src directory and store the output in the content directory, run the build script:


Alternatively, you can build and serve the site locally using Jekyll to test changes you have made or are making:


Note that these helper scripts perform incremental builds. If for some reason you need to clear the metadata/cache used to support the build process, you can run:

rm -rf src/.jekyll-metadata .sass-cache/

Contributing to the site

If you would like to make a change to the ActiveMQ site:

  1. Fork the Apache ActiveMQ site repository to your github account.
  2. Create a new branch from master
  3. Add commit(s) to your branch
  4. Test your changes locally
  5. Open a pull request on the github mirror
  6. An ActiveMQ committer will review and merge your changes

If you are a committer, do the following:

  1. Update the master branch with your (or a Pull Request's) changes.
  2. Run build.sh and ensure that all updates made are reflected in the content directory, commit any that are not.
  3. Push this branch to the ASF remote and the site will automatically be updated within seconds.
