How to build tools.jboss.org

Build Status

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 Git

  • 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)



Install Git to your system. GitHub’s help page is a good starting point. If you are looking for some tips and tricks, checkout Emmanuel’s blog.

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.

For Linux/Fedora: \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 enter the 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 append '--create'.

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 Gemfile dependency management, you need to rerun bundle install.

Serve the site locally

  • Run rake preview

  • If you see a message like Could not find a JavaScript runtime. See https://github.com/sstephenson/execjs for a list of available runtimes this means nodejs is not installed.

  • Wait for a message like [2014-01-06 11:48:01] INFO WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=24294 port=4242 to 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:

WARNING: Missing required dependency to activate optional built-in extension coffeescripttransform.rb
  cannot load such file -- coffee-script

That’s ok, it’s not your fault ;) It’s related to some Awestruct limitations.

Tips & Tricks

How to add a blog ?

To add a blog add a file to the blog folder, following the structure of this template

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.


== Really cool feature

This awesome feature is very dangerous and might be removed, but
for now it is in there.

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 ~/jbosstools-website directory.

  • Run awestruct --auto -P development

  • In parallel, go to the ~/jbosstools-website/_site directory

  • Run 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.

Build Status

If Travis build successfully it will automatically publish the result to the proper site.

Profile parameters

In _config/site.yml various profiles are configured. The following table documents some of the important parameters.
