[jira] [Commented] (SLING-6955) Convert Sling website to JBake and gitpubsub

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SLING-6955?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16050124#comment-16050124 ]

Konrad Windszus commented on SLING-6955:

Could someone list here quickly the drawbacks of the Apache CMS (https://www.apache.org/dev/cms.html)? Currently I am not clearly seeing what problems we try to solve with the new website. Let me start the list here with things I see
# Local builds are hard to achieve
# Based in SVN instead of Git
# It seems that the Apache CMS is basically no longer maintained/developed

But migrating the website again seems quite some effort, given the fact that even the last migration is not 100% finished yet...

> I've started experimenting with JBake to generate the Sling website. If that works well we might switch to that + gitpubsub to have a more flexible way to generate the site.
> My current experiment is at https://github.com/bdelacretaz/sling-jbake, at this point the site starts looking like the current one and many pages work well.
> Internal links will need to be converted, all *.md files need a more complete "front matter" section, currently I have a stub for that, and I think images need to move under the assets folder.
> To play with that, generate the site with the bake.sh script (setup shamelessly copied from https://github.com/apache/incubator-tamaya-site)
