Apache Cayenne Website Sources

Contains sources of Cayenne website.

How To Run

Dev mode

Just clone and run maven, nothing else required.

git clone https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/cayenne-website.git
cd cayenne-website

Open http://localhost:3000 in your browser. In dev mode site supports live-reloading.

:grey_exclamation: You can change host and port by setting dev.host and dev.port properties:

mvn -Ddev.host="my.local" -Ddev.port="8080"


To publish new version just run Maven with publish profile. This will build production version of the site (with cayenne.apache.org base URL) and push commit into asf-site branch that will be synced with actual site content location:

mvn -Ppublish -Dmsg="commit message describing site changes"

That‘s all, so be carefull and review your changes before publishing (also don’t forget to check them after).

Don‘t forget to push you source’s changes so others won't rewrite them.

NOTE: This process can be automated by Jenkins. It can run publish on every commit to master.

Releasing new cayenne version

To update site content with information about new Cayenne version you need to perform these steps:

  • Update data in src/main/site/data/cayenne.yaml file.
  • Write news (see information above).
  • Update documentation, this can be done with build-docs.sh script. You can run it like this: ./build-docs.sh 4.1.M2


Node.js, Yarn, Gulp and Hugo used to build this site, Maven used just to boostrap Node.js and Yarn tools and launch Gulp tasks. Hugo binaries managed by hugo-bin NPM module.

Src structure

There is two main parts of site src:

  • src/main/assets assets processed by Gulp tasks

    • /gulp/ - list of Gulp tasks

      Important tasks:

      • hugo.js - contains tasks that launch Hugo to process all content
      • images.js - compress and copy images
      • reference.js - replace references to generated resources inside content
      • revision.js - generate manifest file with resources versions
      • scripts.js - launch Webpack to process JavaScript resources
      • serve.js - launch dev-version of site with live-reloading
      • styles.js - generate CSS bundle (concat, minify, etc..)
    • /images/ - images that will be compressed and published into site /img directory, you can put any stuff used by site here (see /gulp/images.js)

    • /scripts/ - JavaScript sources, main.js is an entry point for the final bundle, will be processed by Webpack (see /gulp/scripts.js)

    • /styles/ - Sass sources, main.scss is an entry point for the final bundle (see /gulp/styles.js)

    • gulpfile.js - main file for Gulp tasks, define some global path constants

    • package.json - all project dependencies are defined here

  • src/main/site assets processed Hugo site generator

    • /content/ - main content part of the site, markdown and HTML files
    • /data/ - data files in yaml format
    • /layouts/ - site templates, using GO templates
    • /static/ - files that will be copied as is to the final site content, note that js, img and css directories are processed via Gulp tasks, and shouldn't be used directly, instead use coresponding directories in assets.
    • config.yaml - Hugo configuration
