Why should I attend?

Hackathons provide great opportunities for participants: you can contribute to developing new software or tools, meet others in your field, and exchange knowledge and experience with people other than your everyday colleagues. For this hackathon, OpenNMS is cooperating with the Open Source Monitoring Conference (OSMC), in order to bring together those working with open source monitoring tools and those working with OpenNMS.

Combine the hackathon with participating OSMC 2018

For those who are interested, do consider staying a few days longer and join the OSMC 2018 for workshops and/or the conference. OSMC 2018 takes place from 5th November - 8th November 2018 at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Nuremberg, Germany.

Proof of Concept migrating to Antora

Our documentation is written in the AsciiDoc format and we have the documentation version controlled and we treat docs as code. To render the documentation to a single page HTML we use the Apache Maven AsciiDoctor module. To have a more feature rich user friendly frontend we need a more sophisticated framework to have:

  • Better navigation through a quit large document
  • Modul support for different topics
  • Crossreference support between different documentation modules
  • Search
  • UI is separated from the documentation

The Antora project is adapted by different communities, Fedora, MuleSoft and Couchbase. For the reason our documentation is already in AsciiDoc format we should consider to evaluate if Antora fits our needs.

Objectives
Migrate the installation guide as a documentation module to Antora
Publish the result to Netlify on docs.opennms.eu
Automate publishing workflow with CircleCI
