How to build tools.jboss.org
- Serve the site locally
- Next steps
- Tips & Tricks
A bit of Git, a bit of Ruby and you will get your local tools.jboss.org served..
The simplest way to use this is to use our automatically built docker image. See https://hub.docker.com/r/jbosstools/jbosstools-website/.
$ docker pull jbosstools/jbosstools-website $ git clone https://github.com/jbosstools/jbosstools-website $ cd jbosstools-website $ docker run -it --rm -p 4242:4242 -v `pwd`:/jbosstools-website jbosstools/jbosstools-website /bin/bash
|On Linux (SELinux, Fedora), you may experience permission issues inside the container on the jbosstools-website folder. Add a trailing :Z to the volume. The command will now be:|
$ docker run -it --rm -p 4242:4242 -v `pwd`:/jbosstools-website:Z jbosstools/jbosstools-website /bin/bash
Now in the Docker you can do:
$ cd /jbosstools-website $ rake clean preview
and you can browse the result at http://$DOCKER_HOST:4242.
Everything else below is if you want to run awestruct "natively".
Get Ruby 2.2.0 (part of the RVM install if you follow that path - see below)
Get RubyGems 1.3.6 or above
Get GNU Wget 1.14
If on Linux, you might need to install stuff for nokogiri (
sudo yum install libxml libxml-devel libxslt libxslt-devel)
If on Linux, you need to install node.js for execjs ('sudo yum install nodejs')
If on Mac OS, get XCode (needed for native gems)
Ruby (via RVM)
Ruby like many other platforms has its dependency hell. We do recommend you use RVM to isolate your ruby runtimes as well as dependencies (gems). The RVM steps are optional though. If you are not going to use RVM have a look at the different installations options you have.
Note: This installation varies per OS, see details on rvm.io.
\curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash is the simplest and no root required).
Note that for 'rvm' to be activated you need to run as a login shell. When running
rvm it should tell you if
you are running in a proper terminal/login.
Set up the isolated environment for the site
# Do *not* run these as root. # The purpose of using rvm is to have non-root, user isolated and reproducible gem/ruby environment # During the rvm install it might ask to install system level packages, for these your user need to have sudo permissions # or you have to run those installs as root seperately and then run rvm install again as a normal user rvm install 2.2 rvm use 2.2 rvm gemset create jbosstools-website
Note: the project has a
.ruby-gemset file which will be used by rvm when you
jbosstools-website directory. This file will assume you have
the above installed.
Get the source
Next, let’s retrieve the website.
git clone https://github.com/jbosstools/jbosstools-website cd jbosstools-website
If you see a message like this:
Gemset 'jbosstools-website' does not exist, 'rvm gemset create jbosstools-website' first, or
Then it is because you have rvm installed and forgot to run the rvm setup above.
Install Ruby dependencies
This next step might take some time - it is installing all the required dependencies.
# do *not* run these as root gem install bundler bundle install
Note that if someone updates Awestruct or any dependent gem via the
management, you need to rerun
Serve the site locally
If you see a message like
Wait for a message like
[2014-01-06 11:48:01] INFO WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=24294 port=4242to appear in the console (can take a few tens of seconds)
Open your browser to http://localhost:4242
Any change will be automatically picked up except for changes to
_partials files and changes in front-matters.
You might see warnings at startup as follows:
That’s ok, it’s not your fault ;) It’s related to some Awestruct limitations.
Tips & Tricks
How to add a blog ?
How to add New and Noteworthy
To add a new and noteworthy add a dir+file to the whatsnew folder, using one of the existing entries as a template.
Take care to ensure you have listed all the proper component and project versions and the site generation will automatically aggregate the news for the full release.
How do I exclude New and Noteworthy content from Final version ?
Sometimes a N&N in earlier versions are not appropriate in the Final release.
To avoid having to manually create a full NN you can use a asciidoctor macro
to skip content based on the
finalnn property being defined.
ifndef::finalnn == Really cool feature This awesome feature is very dangerous and might be removed, but for now it is in there. endif::finalnn
If that is in version 1.0.0.Beta1 NN then it will still be listed in 1.0.0.Beta1 but for the 1.0.0.Final version it will not.
If your changes are not visible…
completely regenerate the site via:
rake clean[all] preview
If serving the site is slow…
On Linux, serving the file may be atrociously slow (something to do with WEBRick).
Use the following alternative:
Go in your
awestruct --auto -P development
In parallel, go to the
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 4242
You should be back to millisecond serving :)
Publishing of the site is done automatically via Travis CI when you publish to the 'master' or 'production' branch.
If Travis build successfully it will automatically publish the result to the proper site.
_config/site.yml various profiles are configured. The following table documents some of the important parameters.
if true a banner will be shown on top indicating it is a work in progress.
