This procedure was borrowed in part from the apex site. (https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=incubator-apex-site.git) except we use jekyll.
The master branch of this repo contains the source files that are used to generate the HTML that ultimately gets pushed to the incubator site. The
asf-site branch is where the actual generated files are stored. Note that this branch must contain exactly one folder called
content, and so has been checked out as an orphan branch with its own commit history apart from the master branch. See the Contributing section below.
Through a gitpubsub mechanism on the apache.org server, files are taken from the
asf-site branch and pushed to the live server.
If you would like to make a change to the site:
If you are a committer, do the following:
Update the master branch with your (or a Pull Request's) change.
Push updated master to the asf remote master (https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator-quarks-site.git)
build.sh from the master branch directory (requires jekyll). This checks out and updates the
asf-site branch with a new commit of the build from the current branch
At this point, you should be on the
asf-site branch. Simply push this branch to the asf remote with
git push origin asf-site and the site will automatically be updated within seconds.
Note: If you want to try out the website locally on the asf-site branch before you push, you can do so with
jekyll serve -d content --skip-initial-build and point your browser to http://localhost:4000
