The Apache Daffodil website is based off of the Apache Website Template.
The website is generated using Jekyll and some plug-ins for it.
Some Linux distributions provide the Ruby Bundler via their package managers, for example, for Fedora:
$ dnf install rubygem-bundler
$ gem install
$ gem update
Some content is developed using the AsciiDoc Markdown variant, which supports embedded diagrams created from diagram-specifying text formats.
(You probably want to install these as super-user using sudo.)
$ apt install python-pip $ pip install blockdiag $ pip install seqdiag $ pip install actdiag $ pip install nwdiag
nwdiag actually supports more than one diagram type. It supports nwdiag, packetdiag, rackdiag, etc.
Before opening a pull request, you can preview your contributions by running from within the directory:
$ jekyll serve --watch --source site
If that fails to work due to missing jekyll plugin versions, try:
$ bundle exec jekyll serve --watch --source site
Open http://localhost:4000 to view the site served by Jekyll.
Once satisfied, create a branch and open a pull request using the Daffodil project Code Conttributor Workflow but using the website repo instead of the code repo.
Daffodil uses gitpubsub for publishing to the website. The static content served via apache must be served in the
content directory on the
asf-site orphan branch. When the changes are merged into the master branch on GitHub, a GitHub action will automatically be triggered and it will perform the necessary steps to publish the site.
