The Website build script has severely bit-rotted see PHOENIX-6867
- The maven site.xml must have proxy set for the http://conjars.org org repo
- The mvn command must be configured to use Java 1.8. Newer versions won’t work.
Building Phoenix Project Web Site
- Make a local copy of source markdown files and html web pages
$ svn checkout https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/phoenix
- Edit/Add source markdown files in site/source/src/site/markdown directory.
- Edit phoenix-docs/src/docsrc/help/phoenix.csv to update Reference pages, adding any missing new words to phoenix-docs/src/tools/org/h2/build/doc/dictionary.txt.
- Run build.sh located at root to generate/update html web pages in site/publish directory
- svn commit source markdown files and html web pages
Local Testing During Development
The site uses protocol-relative URLs for included assets to support http as well as https. This can cause assets to fail to load when working locally if not using a web server. The root cause is that locally opened files use the file: protocol, but some assets live on remote servers thus requiring the http: or https: protocol.
For best results when testing locally, spin up a simple Python web server after generating the site.
cd site/publish python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000
Now you can access the website at http://localhost:8000/ and your changes are available with a page refresh.
