This repo houses all the assets used to build the Jaeger website, available at https://jaegertracing.io.
The site is built and hosted by Netlify.
Install the "extended" Hugo binary from hugo/releases (use one of the
hugo_extended_* binaries) or
use a package manager if it is available for your operating system.
The "extended" version of Hugo supports Sass, which is necessary to build the site locally.
The currently used version of Hugo is defined in the
netlify.toml configuration file.
Running the site locally
If you want to develop the site locally, you can run a single command (assuming that you've run the setup):
$ make develop
This will start up a local server on localhost port 1313. When you make changes to either the content of the website (in
themes/jaeger-docs/assets), the browser will automatically update to reflect those changes (usually in under one second).
Publishing the site
The site is published automatically by Netlify whenever changes are merged to the
master branch. The site cannot be published in an ad-hoc way (e.g. through a
make command or script in the repo).
Contributing to the site
We strongly encourage you to contribute to this site! For more information, see the contributing guide.
Publishing new Jaeger version
Each Jaeger version is documented in a separate directory e.g. content/docs/1.8/. A special directory content/docs/next-release/ is reserved for the changes to be published as the next version. If you are adding documentation for features that are not yet released in the main Jaeger repository, add your changes to the
next-release directory. If you're adding documentation for already released features, you may need to make the same change twice, i.e. in the most recent release (e.g.
1.8) and in the
Before creating a new release, make sure all outstanding PRs for that version are merged to
next-release directory. Then create a new release:
- copy files from
next-releaseto a new directory, e.g.
1.9, without any changes
- add the new version to config.toml (see
- do not make any other changes to the content (if you need changes, make them before the release)
- open a PR
