Subject [jira] [Commented] (DOXIASITETOOLS-149) create a skin descriptor to contain meta-data about the skin
Date Mon, 08 Feb 2016 19:42:39 GMT


Michael Osipov commented on DOXIASITETOOLS-149:

Yes, I was referring to the skin project of course. So you want to rely on the input of the
user in that case? Would you create an IT for this? Would make it easier to test.

>                 URL:
>             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 (like DOXIASITETOOLS-150) and skins using these features without fearing failing
because being used in older maven-site-plugin versions
> this would also create a new "skin-model" module that would give us a natural place to
document practices around skins
