The GPars website and things

Russel Winder-3
In case anyone had missed it, I transferred all the material that seemed
relevant from gpars.codehaus.org to gpars.github.io. Instead of the
Confluence based site we now have a Git/Markdown/Jekyll/GitHub set up. I
appreciate the look and feel of the site currently really sucks, but
that doesn't stop us getting the content up to scratch. If you have time
to peruse, amend, extend, sub-edit, etc. please clone the GPars
Organization repository  https://github.com/GPars/gpars.github.io and
submit pull requests.

(If you install Jekyll locally, you can preview the site by running
"jekyll server". It is supposed to do live update in this mode and on
Fedora Rawhide it does, on Debian Sid it definitely doesn't. I have no
experience of other environments.

It would be great if the GPars 1.3.0 release, which is very, very
pending, could have a nice new shiny website that we can call
www.gpars.org.

There is also the user guide. The current version is at
http://www.gpars.org/guide/index.html but this is the 1.2.1, the final
GrailsDoc version. The new AsciiDoc version is not online anywhere that
I know, but it is easy to create by cloning the GPars source and running
"gradlew asciidoc" then pointing at the generated site in the build
directory.


And if anyone out there has masses of experience of releasing things to
Artifactory and Bintray and has a few cycles to help me with some
hurdles, please email off-list.

Hi, 

The content on the gpars.github.io web site it barely readable. Gpars deserve definitively something better. 

As far as I understand that pages are generated with Jekyll, begin so I think it should be pretty easy to switch to another CSS theme. 

In the following two links there are many choices: 


For example I found the following two pretty nice: 



If you are interested I may try to update Gpars pages on github to a different theme of your choice. 


Also, I'm a bit confused about www.gpars.org, it will host the pages as gpars.github.io or it is supposed to be a different web site ? 



Cheers,
Paolo

Actually the colour scheme works well for me :-)

Themes are all very well, but then every website looks the same. I think
the GPars website should look unique if at all possible.

The idea is to get everything in place and then Václav can alter the DNS
and we can adjust the gpars.github.io settings so that www.gpars.org
points at the new site and refers to the right guide.

Just a minor correction - the ASCIIDoc user guide is on-line at http://gpars.org/SNAPSHOT/aguide/html5/index.html

Might it be worth moving this to www.gpars.org/guide ?

Well, the ASCIIDoc version documents 1.3, while the /guide url is for the latest GA release. So yes, once 1.3 is out, /guide should point to the new guide.
