Subject Re: Ivy documentation with asciidoc
Date Wed, 31 May 2017 13:20:09 GMT
I had some time today and decided to test this branch out locally. I was able to generate the
docs without any hassle. The conversion works fine which is a great thing.

There are certain warning about the heading/section level we use in the generated adoc files,
for top level heading:

> [asciidoctor:convert] asciidoctor: WARNING: dependency.adoc: line 7: section title out
of sequence: expected level 1, got level 2

but that’s pretty much it in terms of build time warnings/errors.

In one of my other mails I had noted that if not in this release then maybe in next release
we can focus on this xooki to asciidoc conversion. But at that time I wasn’t aware that
Nicolas had already done the bulk of this job by implementing this tool. 

So IMO, after fixing/finalizing some of those WARN related issues, we can probably just go
ahead and use this tool to convert our current docs to adoc as a one time thing in our master
branch. Till we are comfortable and are sure that the conversion is done fully, we can keep
the old xooki backed docs as-is but just not update/add any new stuff in them. Given how nicely
this tool works and the fact that it isn’t breaking anything, I don’t think we will have
to maintain a separate branch to deal with this migration.

Any thoughts?

Yes, I have stopped one too. Some things will need to be manually fixed after the automatic

If you look at the menu on the left, it is present on each page, so it means that for any
new file or deleted file, every page has to be regenerated. The consequence it that generating
a page of the site has to be aware of the list of all the pages of the documentation.

But we can imagine that we uncouple the documentation, like it is being done for the old versions
of the documentation, in the « history » section, by just having a link. So yes we could
some manual copy and publish to svnpubsub on release.
