Lift CMS Site
The Lift CMS site is statically generated on push using https://telegr.am/ and lives at https://liftweb.net/ . The underlying engine behind Telegram is the hoisted static site generator, which is built on top of Lift itself.
Generating the Site
If you want to work on the site yourself, you can download the hoisted.jar file from telegram and then run, from the root directory of this repository:
$ java -jar /path/to/hoisted.jar site compiled
You'll then get a
compiled directory with the HTML version of the site!
Releasing a New Version
There are a few steps that are currently manual when a new Lift release goes
out, including creating an entry for the Lift version at
building and updating the API docs in
For now, adding news is just a matter of adding an appropriate file to
happening/. “Appropriate” requires cloning an existing
and changing the bits that seem relevant. This will be more straightforward
soon when Markdown support is merged.
Currently all the documents in the site are
.cms.xml files, which are files
designed for hoisted to consume. However, hoisted will also happily work with
Markdown files, as long as they're named
.md. There are still a few hurdles
before markdown files will be immediately usable for happenings.
