The Website build script has severely bit-rotted see PHOENIX-6867

  • The maven site.xml must have proxy set for the org repo
  • The mvn command must be configured to use Java 1.8. Newer versions won’t work.

Building Phoenix Project Web Site

  1. Make a local copy of source markdown files and html web pages
 $ svn checkout
  1. Edit/Add source markdown files in site/source/src/site/markdown directory.
  2. 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.
  3. Run located at root to generate/update html web pages in site/publish directory
  4. 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.
