Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1495) Brand new website
Date Thu, 01 Mar 2018 10:03:00 GMT


Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1495:

You also need to consider that the site is published via an svn mirror.
 This is primitive but it works.  There is also an Apache CMS system that was developed specifically
for project websites; it's what Lucene uses, and seems to work pretty well.

The current build process involves the following:

- Compilation of the site into html using Forrest
- Downloading release artifacts and unpacking their documentation in the right places
- Publishing the site contents, in its entirety, to the svn mirror

The technology you use, therefore, must produce static HTML pages for publication in a tree
structure, and allow relative references to other places that it does not generate.
