> 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.
