Apache YuniKorn website

pre-commit auto-publish

This README will walk you through building and updating the Apache YuniKorn website.


  1. The master branch contains the website source code. Modifications of the website need to be merged into the master branch.

  2. The asf-site branch contains the deployed static pages, scripts and images of the website. This branch is maintained by yunikorn-bot. Manually updating this branch should only happen as a last resort.

The website running at https://yunikorn.apache.org will be updated automatically via the configuration set in the .asf.yaml file.

Make changes

You can build and run the website server locally in development mode with the following command:

./local-build.sh run

This command will build a Docker image yunikorn/yunikorn-website:latest locally, and launch the web-server at this URL: http://localhost:3000 The website will be built based on the content in the current directory. Any changes that are made within the directory will automatically trigger the update of the local webserver. You can review your changes from the local endpoint to verify your changes. Once the development is done, you need to press Control+C to exit the script mode.

For an overview of all options of the local build script run:

./local-build.sh help

Local build

Instead of running the build inside a docker image you can also run it locally when you have pnpm installed. This is faster than running the build inside a Docker image:

pnpm install
pnpm build

Run the website server locally in development mode with the following command:

pnpm install
pnpm run start

Updating the site

The website is built based using docusaurus-v2. The pages and documentation are written in MD file format, the data required is located at:

  • docusaurus.config.js the main site layout and menu definition
  • src/pages the non-versioned static pages of the site
  • static images not used in the documentation
  • docs the master version of the documentation
  • sidebars.js the layout of the documentation menu

The directories versioned_docs and versioned_sidebars contain the versioned copies of the documentation and the layout. Documentation versioning is part of the release procedure. Updates to all current documentation follows the standard JIRA and pull request model.

For advanced updates, including style, theme, etc, please refer to the docusaurus documentation. Changes in this area should be discussed before applying.

Static pages

Static pages form a small but crucial part of the site. The following pages are part of the static content:

  • roadmap
  • download information
  • community pages

The top menu is defined in the docusaurus.config.js. New pages that are added which need to be accessible from the menu must be added to the configuration. Pages that are linked from other pages do not require a configuration entry.
The Apache links are only defined as part of the site layout and are not backed by any pages.

Deploy website

The deployment should happen automatically once all changes are merged into the master branch. It usually takes a few minutes before the asf site gets updated.

The manual steps of deploying the web-site

Note: In most of the cases, you do not need to read this section as publishing should be handled by the github workflow.

All the below steps expect that the current directory is the top-level directory of the repository.

  1. Commit the master branch to GitHub repo.
  2. run a local build or local-build.sh build
  3. Copy the build directory to a backup path outside the source tree, e.g. mkdir ../backup-site && cp -R build/* ../backup-site.
  4. Checkout the asf-site branch, clear all the contents of the directory, e.g. rm -rf ./* (this leaves the files starting with a dot do not remove them!)
  5. Copy the contents of the backup-site directory back to the top-level directory of the repo, e.g. cp -R ../backup-site/* .
  6. Commit the asf-site branch to GitHub repo.

The website will be updated automatically as per the normal commit flow for the asf-site branch.
