Apache Fluo website

Build Status Apache License

Code powering the Apache Fluo website ( Contributing describes how to test locally.

Update website for new release

Below are the steps required to update the Fluo project website for a new release of Fluo or Fluo Recipes. The steps below assume you are releasing Fluo 1.2.0. For a Fluo Recipes release, replace any reference to fluo with recipes.

  1. Confirm that Javadocs for the release are hosted externally

  2. Modify _config.yml for the new release:

    • Set latest_fluo_release to 1.2.0
    • Verify default values (i.e Javadoc & GitHub URLs) set for fluo-1-2 collection
  3. Remove the “Future release” warning from the Fluo docs layout in _layouts/fluo-1.2.html

  4. Add link to 1.2 documentation in docs/

  5. Add link to 1.2 javadocs in pages/

  6. If a post exists for the release in _posts/release, update the date and remove draft: true from the post to publish it. Otherwise, create a post with release notes and resources to announce the release.

Create documentation for next release

Below are steps to create documentation for the next release of Fluo or Fluo Recipes. The directions below are for creating Fluo 1.3 docs from 1.2 docs. For Fluo Recipes documentation, replace any reference to fluo with recipes.

  1. Create the Fluo 1.3 docs from the 1.2 docs

     cp -r _fluo-1-2 _fluo-1-3
  2. Create a fluo-1.3.html layout and update any collection references in it to fluo-1-3. You should also add a warning banner to notify users that it's for a future release.

     cp _layouts/fluo-1.2.html _layouts/fluo-1.3.html
     vim _layout/fluo-1.3.html
  3. Update _config.yml by adding a fluo-1-3 collection and setting default values for it. You may want to keep 1.2 values for github & javadocs until 1.3 is released.


Automatic Staging

Changes pushed to our main branch will automatically trigger Jekyll to build our site from that branch and push the result to our asf-staging branch, where they will be served on our default staging site.

Publishing Staging to Production

First, add our repository as a remote in your local clone, if you haven't already done so (these commands assume the name of that remote is ‘upstream’).


git clone<yourusername>/fluo-website
cd fluo-website
git remote add upstream

Next, publish the staging site to production by updating the asf-site branch to match the contents in the asf-staging branch:

# Step 0: stay in main branch; you never need to switch
git checkout main

# Step 1: update your upstream remote
git remote update upstream

# Step 2: push upstream/asf-staging to upstream/asf-site
# run next command with --dry-run first to see what it will do without making changes
git push upstream upstream/asf-staging:asf-site

A convenience script can be found that performs these steps for you, after asking which remote you want to use. It is located in the main branch at _scripts/

Note that Step 2 should always be a fast-forward merge. That is, there should never be any reason to force-push it if everything is done correctly. If extra commits are ever added to asf-site that are not present in asf-staging, then those branches will need to be sync'd back up in order to continue avoiding force pushes.

The final site can be viewed here.
