Subject [jira] [Created] (DOXIASITETOOLS-149) create a skin descriptor to contain meta-data about the skin
Date Sun, 07 Feb 2016 08:51:39 GMT
Hervé Boutemy created DOXIASITETOOLS-149:

             Summary: create a skin descriptor to contain meta-data about the skin
                 Key: DOXIASITETOOLS-149
             Project: Maven Doxia Sitetools
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Site renderer
    Affects Versions: 1.6
            Reporter: Hervé Boutemy
             Fix For: 1.7

currently, a skin is a jar containing at least {{META-INF/maven/site.vm}}, which is the Velocity
template file

adding a skin descriptor (as XML with Modello, to be consistent with Maven style) would permit
meta-data definition.
The first case I see is Doxia Site Tools prerequisites, to have a skin make clear that it
requires a newer version of Doxia Site Tools (which is a dependency of maven-site-plugin =
what end-users see): this would permit newer Doxia Site Tools versions to provide new features
for skins, and skins using these features without fearing being used in older maven-site-plugin

this would also create a new "skin-model" module that would give us a natural place to document
practices around skins
