Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-9553) Migration of the Groovy website
Date Wed, 29 Apr 2015 21:32:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-9553?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14520290#comment-14520290

Paul King commented on INFRA-9553:

A less important but related topic is that we would like to add an additional build agent
(a windows OS agent) into the CI mix as well. Perhaps there is an INFRA box available that
meets the necessary criteria[1] that we could use for this purpose? This could be done independently
and before any other changes that might be done as part of this issue but is of a lower priority
as we exist without such functionality (in the form of a CI server) today.

> Migration of the Groovy website
> -------------------------------
>                 Key: INFRA-9553
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-9553
>             Project: Infrastructure
>          Issue Type: Wish
>            Reporter: C├ędric Champeau
>            Priority: Minor
> The Groovy website is currently hosted on a dedicated server sponsored by Jetbrains.
It would be
> reasonable to migrate it to the ASF Infrastructure, but there are many specifics that
make it
> impossible to do so today without loosing major functionalities. This ticket aims at
> what we have and detail what can be achieved in a foreseeable future.
> The site consists of several parts:
> - a statically generated website, built using a custom engine written in Groovy [1] and
hosted on a dedicated domain [2]
> - documentation, uploaded as new Groovy releases are issued and hosted in a subdomain
> The static website and the documentation are interconnected, but the Groovy website
> and the Groovy project have different lifecycles: the Groovy website is built independently
> of Groovy builds. A commit on the master branch of the website project [1] will automatically:
> - trigger a new build of the website on the CI server [4]
> - deploy it on [1]
> When a new version of Groovy is released, documentation is automatically uploaded to
[3]. Each version of the Groovy documentation
> is available through a dedicated URL in the form of http://docs.groovy-lang.org/<version>/.
For example, docs for
> Groovy 2.2.1 will be exposed in http://docs.groovy-lang.org/2.2.1/. In addition to version
specific URLs, 2 symlinks are updated
> on demand:
> - "latest" points at the latest released version of Groovy
> - "next" points to the latest *snapshot* version of Groovy
> In particular, not only released version of Groovy trigger an upload of documentation
to the server, but also each snapshot version.
> When an official release is done, the "latest" and "next" symlinks need to be updated,
and the website has to been regenerated:
> - to include the newly released version of Groovy in the downloads page
> - to regenerate a "skinned" version of the documentation available at [5] (there are
reasons for this skinned documentation to
> be different from the one available at [3] which are beyond the scope of this ticket).
> To give some figures:
> - latest zipped documentation is about 16.2 MB
> - unzipped documentation weights 127 MB and contains 3651 files
> "Upload" of both the website and documentation is very simple so far because it's hosted
on the same server, so only consists of
> unzipping the contents, but it should be very easy to use something else like GitHub
pages to host the website pages. It's not
> that simple for the documentation which is obviously much bigger and for which svnpub/git
is a stopper. Best would be to be
> able to upload a zip and unzip it remotely.
> In addition to this, the webserver is an Apache HTTPd server with a special configuration:
> - the 2 virtual hosts that were described here
> - a set of RewriteRules to deal with redirections from the old Codehaus website. This
is very important to keep them because most
> of people still find documentation from Google on pages hosted on the old website. For
that, a lot of redirects have been configured
> Last but not least, all configuration, website configuration and server management is
done by me. It would be nice if at some point
> we could rely on the INFRA team :)
> I hope this helps explaining what we have and what we need, I'd be happy to give you
more details on demand.
