Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-690) Simplify the download page
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2008 16:51:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-690?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12628381#action_12628381
] 

Carsten Ziegeler commented on FELIX-690:
----------------------------------------

As a first step I've created a new macro which just creates the short links. The new format
is
{felixdownload:EXTENSION}filename_without_extension{felixdownload}

for example:

{felixdownload:jar}org.apache.felix.scr-1.0.0{felixdownload}

To create links for both tar.gz and zip a shortcut can be used by using the extension "bin":

{felixdownload:bin}org.apache.felix.scr-1.0.0{felixdownload}

> The download page is quite ugly and difficult to comprehend; no offense to those who
created it. :-)
> I think it would be better if we could simplify it so that each downloadable release
fit on a single line, something like:
>     name [bundle] (asc,md5) [src tar.gz] (asc,md5) [src zip] (asc,md5)
> So, in other words, we would have four columns:
>     1. Name
>     2. Link to bundle JAR and its digests.
>     3. Link to src tar.gz and its digests.
>     4. Link to src zip and its digests.
> I don't think there is any reason to keep repeating the complete long file name, we just
need a short anchor name for people to click on.
> Further, I think it would be better if the list could be alphabetized. Perhaps the only
exception would be to include the bundled framework convenience release separate at the top.
