Additionally the repository also has a
asf-staging branch that can be used to preview website changes prior to publishing them to the main website. Any branch other than
main that has a
Jenkinsfile present in it will automatically be staged at https://jena.staged.apache.org, the Javadoc from the
javadoc branch is also automatically staged into this staging site.
The website uses Hugo as static website generator. See Hugo for more info and for details how to install Hugo.

Jenkinsfile was contributed in https://github.com/apache/jena-site/pull/17 (July 2020).
Steps to do to setup the Jenkins job:
Create a new multibranch pipeline (e.g. ‘Jena_Site’).
Branch source -> git
Set the gitbox url ->
https://gitbox.apache.org/repos/asf/jena-site.git and use the jenkins (master pub key) credentials.
In the ‘Scan Multibranch Pipeline Triggers’ check the ‘Periodically if not otherwise run’ checkbox and enter a sane value (e.g. 15 minutes). This is needed because webhooks are not delivered to ci-builds (yet - 2020-07-28).
Save the job and click the ‘Scan Multibranch Pipeline Now’ button to trigger an initial scan. A first run may also happen as the SCM polls.
It is at this point that it gets the label
git-websites so the first job may have run on the wrong node.
