15 -= Welcome to your wiki =
5 +**XWiki Contrib** is a community dedicated to collaborative development of XWiki related projects and extensions in the spirit of wiki communities. These projects are not part of the official XWiki distributions and are not maintained by the XWiki development team.
16 16  
17 -XWiki is the best tool to organize your knowledge. A //wiki// is organized in a hierarchy of //pages//. You can create multiple wikis, each with its own set of pages.
7 += Contrib Project List =
18 18  
19 -XWiki can be used as a knowledge base (support, documentation, sales, etc.), for collaborative workspaces or even as a complete intranet.
9 +The full list of Contrib projects is available [[on GitHub>>https://github.com/organizations/xwiki-contrib]].
20 20  
21 -= The basics =
11 +Note that projects not having an active maintainer are moved to the [[Attic>>https://github.com/organizations/xwiki-attic]] (The definition of "active" is left to the community and anyone can propose to move inactive projects to the Attic).
22 22  
23 -To make the most out of your wiki, log-in and:
13 += Hosting tools =
24 24  
25 -Use the {{velocity}}$services.icon.render('pencil'){{/velocity}} button above to //edit// this page and start customizing your wiki to your needs.
15 +The project hosting forge can provide contributors with some or all of the following tools:
26 26  
27 -Use the {{velocity}}$services.icon.render('add'){{/velocity}} button above to //add// more pages to your wiki and create the //hierarchy// that best organizes your content.
17 +* A **GitHub repository**, under http://github.com/xwiki-contrib
18 +* A **JIRA project** for tracking bugs and feature requests, at https://jira.xwiki.org/ and under the "XWiki Contributed projects" category. Note that each project should have its own JIRA project (we used to have a single generic JIRA project with different ##components## but this was creating difficulties).
19 +* A generic **maven groupId**: ##org.xwiki.contrib## (or ##org.xwiki.contrib.<module name>## if the project has several modules). That's until the project reaches a certain size and visibility, in which case it can have its own maven group id.
20 +* A **Forum** for your project. Note that for the moment, all the projects share the [[Development category of the forum>>https://forum.xwiki.org/c/Dev]].
21 +* **Project pages** on [[extensions.xwiki.org>>extensions:Main.WebHome]] to describe and document the project. When the project reaches a certain visibility and size it can have its own wiki on xwiki.org.
22 +* A **CI job** on http://ci.xwiki.org for building the project automatically on each commit (more specifically see [[XWiki Contrib jobs>>http://ci.xwiki.org/view/Contrib/job/XWiki%20Contrib/]]).
23 +* A **Sonar project report** on http://sonar.xwiki.org to analyze the project's quality with various metrics.
24 +* **Translations**, under the [[l10n platform>>http://l10n.xwiki.org]].
28 28  
29 -Use the {{velocity}}$services.icon.render('home'){{/velocity}} breadcrumbs located above the title to //navigate// inside your pages. It's easy to get lost in a big wiki without them.
26 += Contributing to an existing project =
30 30  
31 -You can also use the [[Sandbox>>Sandbox.WebHome]] for more demo content and generally a place to experiment with your wiki's features.
28 +If you're interested to contribute to an existing project on http://github.com/xwiki-contrib, please send a post to the [[Forum (dev category)>>https://forum.xwiki.org/c/Dev]], introducing yourself and explaining what you wish to do. Make sure to create an account on GitHub and mention this id in the email so that we can give you access. Thanks for helping out! :)

37 -= Extend your wiki =
32 +You could very well develop your XWiki extension in your own GitHub organization and you might wonder why put your project on XWiki Contrib. Some reasons:
38 38  
39 -To extend the power and functionalities of your wiki with the features that //you// need, head over to the {{velocity}}[[Extension Manager>>path:$xwiki.getURL($services.model.createDocumentReference('wiki', 'XWiki', 'XWikiPreferences'), 'admin', 'editor=globaladmin&section=XWiki.Extensions')]]{{/velocity}} where you can search for and install extensions.
34 +* You join a Community, the XWiki open source community. We value a lot the community notion and we want to be more like the Apache Software Foundation (strong sense of community) rather than Source Forge (list of independent projects, little community). In particular, this is why we ask you to introduce yourself when requesting a project.
35 +* This makes your extension visible to the XWiki community and thus other contributors may want to join you in participating to the development of your extension (contribute on code, discussions, promotion, etc).
36 +* You get some tools setup for your project (GitHub repository, Issue tracker, Wiki pages)
40 40  
41 -To browse through the 900+ community contributed extensions available for XWiki, head over to the [[Extensions Repository>>http://extensions.xwiki.org]].
38 += Requesting a project =
39 +
40 +The contrib project is open for anyone who wish to start a new project. Simply send a post on the [[Forum (dev category)>>https://forum.xwiki.org/c/Dev]] using the ##contrib## in your post. Let us know the name and a short description of the project. If your project has already been made available for download on extensions.xwiki.org, please mention it and point us to its page (If it is not, then no need to hurry, you will make it available once it's ready). Finally, let us know which of the tools listed above you need. For GitHub access, you will need to register a user on http://github.com and let us know about it (a best practice is to have a username composed of the first letter of your first name immediately followed by your last name, the whole with no capital letter, for example **jdoe** if your name is John Doe).
41 +
42 +== Choosing the name ==
43 +
44 +When picking the GitHub name please follow the existing conventions:
45 +
46 +* ##application-<xxx>## for apps
47 +* ##macro-<xxx>## for macros only (if you project provides a macro but also provides other wiki pages then it's considered an app)
48 +* ##api-<xxx>## for APIs only (same as for macro, if it contains UI as well, then you should call it an app instead)
49 +* ##displayer-<xxx>## for custom displayers
50 +* ##syntax-<xxx>## for rendering syntaxes
51 +* ##authenticator-<xxx>## for authenticators
52 +* ##skin-<xxx>## for skins
53 +
54 +For the actual project name part (##<xxx>## of the git repository name) it is preferred to use a single word (e.g. ##application-forum##). However, sometimes that is not descriptive enough, so you can either use multiple words next to each other (e.g. ##application-filemanager##) if that makes sense and looks natural enough or, if not, you should separate the words with a dash (e.g. ##displayer-multiselect-suggest##). Whatever you decide, please try to keep it as short and descriptive as possible.
55 +
56 +Special cases:
57 +
58 +* ##icon-themes##. This is a reserved name and it's also the name of a [[special repository containing all Icon Themes>>>https://github.com/xwiki-contrib/icon-themes]]. If you want to contribute a new Icon theme, you should add a new ##icon-theme-<yyy>## directory in this repository. We release all Icon Themes together with the same version as we consider them too small to be released separately.
59 +* ##color-themes##. This is a reserved name and it's also the name of a [[special repository containing all Color Themes>>>https://github.com/xwiki-contrib/color-themes]]. If you want to contribute a new Color theme, you should add a new ##color-theme-<yyy>## directory in this repository. We release all Color Themes together with the same version as we consider them too small to be released separately.
60 +
61 +//Hint//: When in doubt, have a look at [[existing repository names>>https://github.com/xwiki-contrib]] for inspiration.
62 +
63 +Please try to avoid using the ##xwiki-## prefix since this one is used by XWiki GitHub organization repositories (i.e. Core modules).
64 +
65 +== README.md Template ==
66 +
67 +It's very useful for projects to have a ##README.md## file providing various information (who the lead is, the best practices for contributing to this project, etc). We recommend using the following template:
68 +
69 +{{code language="none"}}

127 +
128 +== For XWiki Admins ==
129 +
130 +You have to create 2 things:
131 +
132 +* A GitHub repository
133 +* a JIRA project
134 +
135 +=== GitHub Repository Creation ===
136 +
137 +When creating a new ##xwiki-contrib## repository on GitHub please make sure to:
138 +
139 +* Uncheck the "wiki" and "issues" checkboxes in the settings
140 +* Add the ##xwikiorg## group in the Collaborators settings. Make sure to select the "Write" permission (it's "Read" by default).
141 +* Add an email service pointing to notifications AT xwiki DOT org for notifications
142 +* Add a default ##.gitignore## file (or tell the project owner to add one), by copying the {{scm project="xwiki-commons" path=".gitignore"}}##.gitignore from ##xwiki-commons##{{/scm}}.
143 +
144 +=== JIRA Project Creation ===
145 +
146 +* Go to the [[JIRA project view>>https://jira.xwiki.org/secure/project/ViewProjects.jspa]]
147 +* Click "Create Project" and select "Create with shared configuration" as on:(((
148 +{{image reference="jira.png" width="350px"/}}
42 42  )))
43 -(%class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6"%)(((
44 -= Create your application =
150 +* Select the "LATEX" project to copy the config from since it's one project that is known to have the right config.
151 +* After it's been created it's nice to add a ##1.0## version
152 +* Also make sure to check that the Category is set to "XWiki Contributed Projects - Others" (it's located in "Details" or simply click "Edit" on the [[JIRA project view>>https://jira.xwiki.org/secure/project/ViewProjects.jspa]]).
45 45  
46 -Go beyond the available extensions and define the //structure// of your data based on //your// needs, creating //your// own applications with [[App Within Minutes>>AppWithinMinutes]] (AWM).
154 +==== Permissions, Groups & Roles ====
47 47  
48 -AWM will take care of making it easy for you and your users to create and manage the data.
156 +* Contrib committers (##xwiki-contrib## GitHub Organization) must be added to the ##contrib-committers## group
157 +* XWiki committers (##xwiki## GitHub organization) must be added to the ##xwiki-committers## group
158 +
159 +When you copy the LATEX jira project you inherit from these rules:
160 +
161 +* Projects must have the ##Committers## role be including ##contrib-committers## and ##xwiki-committers## groups
162 +* Projects must have the ##contrib-committers## and ##xwiki-committers## groups added to the ##Administrators## role so that Contrib & XWiki committers can release the projects in JIRA (in addition to being able to release at the SCM level).
163 +* Project permissions must be using the ##Committers## role to decide what user are allowed to access.
164 +* TODO: Add rules about special contributors.
165 +
166 += Requesting CI / Snapshot builds for your project =
167 +
168 +XWiki.org has a [[continuous build>>dev:Community.ContinuousBuild]] which builds maven projects each time they are modified on GitHub and put the resulting artifact in our [[snapshots Maven repository>>http://nexus.xwiki.org/nexus/content/groups/public-snapshots/]]. This is useful when you want people using your project as a dependency to continuously benefit from the improvements or to tell users of your Extension try it out before it's released.
169 +
170 +To have your project added to the continuous build follow thes steps:
171 +
172 +* First you need to use the XWiki parent pom to have the correct distribution management information. For example for a projects depending on ##xwiki-platform## (See [[Parent POM>>https://github.com/xwiki-contrib/parent]] for more details):(((
173 +{{code language="xml"}}
174 +<project>
175 +...
176 + <parent>
177 + <groupId>org.xwiki.contrib</groupId>
178 + <artifactId>parent-platform</artifactId>
179 + <version>see the building section below to choose the version</version>
180 + </parent>
181 +...
182 +</project>
183 +{{/code}}
49 49  )))
185 +* Add a [[##Jenkinsfile##>>https://jenkins.io/doc/book/pipeline/jenkinsfile/]] to the root of your module. Here's a simple example that should work fine:(((
186 +{{code language="groovy"}}

219 +
220 +{{warning}}
221 +At the moment, we still need to trigger a rescan of the GitHub organization to make a new project appear on the [[CI page for XWiki Contrib>>http://ci.xwiki.org/view/Contrib/job/XWiki%20Contrib/]]. Please ping a dev on IRC or on the [[Forum>>https://forum.xwiki.org/c/Dev]].
222 +{{/warning}}
223 +
224 += Release the project =
225 +
226 +There are 3 main steps to release your project:
227 +
228 +{{toc scope="local"/}}
229 +
230 +== JIRA Release ==
231 +
232 +* If your project is using JIRA, release the version in JIRA and add a new version label for the next version.
233 +* If you're using a [[Contrib Parent POM>>https://github.com/xwiki-contrib/parent]] then you can configure your POM to [[auto-release on JIRA>>https://github.com/xwiki-contrib/parent#enable-automatic-jira-release]].
234 +
235 +== Release using Maven ==
236 +
237 +XWiki.org allows you to release your project on the [[XWiki Maven Remote Repository>>http://nexus.xwiki.org]] as long as you follow these steps:
238 +
239 +* Use ##org.xwiki.contrib## as ##groupId## in your maven module
240 +* Request for an account on [[Nexus>>http://nexus.xwiki.org]] by sending a post on the [[Forum>>https://forum.xwiki.org/c/Dev]], mentioning the username you'd wish to have (you could also mention which extension you're planning to release to provide contextual information).
241 +* Once you've received your credentials put them in(((
242 +##~~/.m2/settings.xml##
243 +
244 +{{code language="xml"}}
245 +<settings>
246 +...
247 +<servers>
248 +...

253 + </server>
254 +...
255 +</servers>
256 +...
257 +</settings>
258 +{{/code}}
259 +)))
260 +* If you're using a [[Contrib Parent>>https://github.com/xwiki-contrib/parent]] in your POM under ##<parent>## and if you have configured the JIRA plugin to do automatic releases, make sure to also [[update your ##settings.xml## with JIRA credentials>>https://github.com/xwiki-contrib/parent#enable-automatic-jira-release]].
261 +* Put the following configuration in your project(((
262 +##pom.xml##
263 +
264 +{{code language="xml"}}
265 +<project>
266 +...
267 + <scm>

271 + </scm>
272 +...
273 +</project>
274 +{{/code}}
275 +
276 +Where ##{extensionrepository}## is the name of the repository in [[http://github.com/xwiki-contrib/]].
277 +)))
278 +* Release the project with the maven release plugin (notice the ##integration-tests## profile that is needed when there are functional tests but that you should always use since it doesn't harm)(((
279 +{{code language="none"}}
280 +mvn release:prepare -Pintegration-tests -Darguments="-DskipTests" -DskipTests
281 +{{/code}}
282 +
283 +{{warning}}
284 +If you want to skip the enforcer plugin, use:
285 +
286 +{{code language="none"}}
287 +mvn release:prepare -Pintegration-tests -Darguments="-DskipTests -Dxwiki.enforcer.skip=true" -DskipTests
288 +{{/code}}
289 +{{/warning}}
290 +)))
291 +* The released XWiki artifacts are signed ([[http:~~/~~/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_signature>>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_signature]]). This helps downloaders check that indeed the binary is what was initially put in there, and was not replaced by an intruder.(((
292 +The signing maven plugin is configured in the toplevel pom ( {{code}}<groupId>org.xwiki.commons</groupId><artifactId>xwiki-commons</artifactId>{{/code}} ) so any module that's inheriting from that will have the gpg plugin configured by default. To find out, get the effective pom of your module ( {{code}}mvn help:effective-pom{{/code}} ) and check if the gpg maven plugin is there (maven-gpg-plugin).
293 +
294 +If you're gonna try to release like that, it will probably fail since the gpg plugin expects you to have a gnupg key with a password. You now have 2 options:
295 +
296 +* Overwrite the settings of the gpg plugin in your pom to disable signing:(((
297 +{{code}}
298 + <profiles>
299 + <profile>
300 + <id>release</id>
301 + <build>

310 + </plugins>
311 + </build>
312 + </profile>
313 + </profiles>
314 +{{/code}}
315 +)))
316 +* Configure your setup to sign properly. To do that, you will have to:
317 +** generate a gpg key which will be stored in your home folder and will be used by maven. On linux you can do that using the default gpg command ({{code}}gpg --gen-key{{/code}}, read the man page if you want to know more about the options). On Windows you can use [[Gpg4win>>http://www.gpg4win.org/]], while on Mac you have the [[GPG Suite>>https://gpgtools.org/]]. If you don't know what to fill in for the options requested by the tool, keep the defaults.
318 +** Tell maven the passphrase of this key (the one you entered upon key generation), either in the command line when performing the release {{code}}mvn release:perform -Darguments=-Dgpg.passphrase=PASSWORD{{/code}} or set it in your maven settings.xml like this(((
319 +{{code}}
320 +...
321 + <profile>

381 +{{/warning}}
382 +)))
383 +* Note that you'll need to push the changes done by the release plugin: {{code}}git push origin master{{/code}}
384 +* By default the extension will be automatically released on ##nexus.xwiki.org##. In case you have configured your extension's POM so that it's not the case then ask for someone (on the [[Forum>>https://forum.xwiki.org/c/Dev]] or on IRC) to validate your release from the staging repository on [[Nexus>>http://nexus.xwiki.org]] to make your extension available on ##nexus.xwiki.org##. Alternatively if you've been granted the permissions you can do this yourself by understanding [[Nexus Staging>>http://books.sonatype.com/nexus-book/reference/staging-repositories.html]]. To perform promotion do the following:
385 +** Select the repository to validate in the Staging Repositories list
386 +** Click the "Close" button to close it. Wait a few seconds since it's done asynchronously.
387 +** Make sure to test your extension from the closed staging repo first since a released repo cannot be removed!
388 +** Once you want to move your extension from the Staging Repository to the Public Repository click the "Release" button. Wait a few seconds since it's done asynchronously.
389 +* After that your release will be available for download on ##nexus.xwiki.org## and anyone will be able to use it as a dependency for his own project
390 +
391 +== Documentation ==
392 +
393 +* Update the documentation for your project (or create it if there's none) on the [[Extensions Wiki>>extensions:Main.WebHome]] and make sure to add release notes information. See the next sections for more.
394 +* Announce the new release on the [[Forum>>https://forum.xwiki.org/c/News]] (in the News category).
395 +
396 += Recovering from a failed Release =
397 +
398 +It may happen that the ##release:perform## fails. In this case you'll want to rollback, fix the problem and release again. Maven generates temporary files in your module's directory. Don't remove them! :)
399 +
400 +To rollback you need to call the following:
401 +
402 +{{code language="none"}}
403 +mvn release:rollback
404 +{{/code}}
405 +
406 +{{warning}}
407 +The document for the [[##release:rollback## mojo>>http://maven.apache.org/maven-release/maven-release-plugin/examples/rollback-release.html]] says that currently the deletion of the created tag is not implemented. Thus even if you see the rollback call you will still need to perform step 2 of the manual process below.
408 +{{/warning}}
409 +
410 +Now if you have already deleted those files, don't panic! It's still easy to recover. You'll just need to do manually [[what the ##release:rollback## does>>http://maven.apache.org/maven-release/maven-release-plugin/examples/rollback-release.html]]:
411 +
412 +* Rollback the changes done by the ##release:prepare## call by reverting the changes in Git
413 +* Remove the local and remote tag created by the ##release:prepare## call ({{code language="none"}}git tag --delete the_local_tag{{/code}} and {{code language="none"}}git push origin :the_remote_tag{{/code}}).
414 +
415 += Publishing on extensions.xwiki.org =
416 +
417 +The first step is to [[release>>||anchor="HReleasetheproject"]] your extension in the XWiki Maven Remote Repository. Then go the [[Extension wiki home page>>extensions:Main.WebHome]] and click on the [[Import>>extensions:ExtensionCode.ImportExtension]] button located inside the Contribute box (you'll need to be logged in). Then fill in your extension id (the format is ##<maven groupId>:<maven artifactId>##), select the ##maven-xwiki## repository and press the import button.
418 +
419 +If you have already created an extension page manually on extensions.xwiki.org, the import will locate it (provided you've filled the correct extension id in your extension page, you can edit it in Object mode to fill it if that's not the case) and will overwrite data that it finds in your extension's ##pom.xml## file, preserving the rest of the information you've manually entered (like the description).
420 +
421 +{{info}}
422 +If you have already imported your Extension and you've just published a new version in nexus.xwiki.org and you wish to update the version seen on extensions.xwiki.org you should know that this is automatically done every night by a scheduler job so you don't have to do anything. However if you wish to force it, go to your extension page and click the refresh icon located at the top right corner of that page.

425 += Implementing your Maven build =
426 +
427 +See [[Building a XAR with Maven>>platform:DevGuide.CreatingExtensions.WebHome#HBuildingaXARwithMaven]].
428 +
429 += Application Design =
430 +
431 +This section provides suggested best practices for writing an application. It is there to ensure your application is nice and easy to use by XWiki users.
432 +
433 +* Put all your pages in a space dedicated for your application. This makes your application nicely compartmented. Pick a short space name (e.g. ##UserDirectory##). Examples of space names:(((
434 +{{image reference="spaces.png"/}}
435 +)))
436 +* Ensure that all technical pages of your application are marked as ##hidden## so that users don't see them by default. To do so, edit those pages and tick the ##hidden## checkbox(((
437 +{{image reference="hidden.png"/}}
438 +)))
439 +* Make sure you add a User Interface Extension (UIX) for the Application Panel extension point. This registers your application into the Application Panel:(((
440 +{{image reference="applications-panel.png"/}}
441 +
442 +This is done by adding an object of type ##XWiki.UIExtensionClass## in a page in your application space. We recommend having a page named ##<your space>.ApplicationsPanelEntry## (e.g. ##Blog.ApplicationPanelEntry##). For example:
443 +{{image reference="application-uix.png"/}}
444 +
445 +In order to have a nice-looking UIX page, We also recommend to have the following content on that page (insert it in wiki edit mode):
446 +
447 +{{code}}
448 +{{include document="XWiki.UIExtensionSheet" /}}
449 +{{/code}}
450 +)))
451 +
452 += Documenting =
453 +
454 +After you've published your extension in the XWiki Maven Remote Repository, import it on [[extensions.xwiki.org>>extensions:Main.WebHome]] (click on "Import" on that page, you'll need to be logged in after registering yourself). This creates an extension page. Verify that your extension is marked as "Installable with the Extension Manager". This makes it easy for users to install it from within their XWiki instances.
455 +
456 +{{warning}}
457 +If you've already created the page on [[extensions.xwiki.org>>extensions:Main.WebHome]] prior to importing the extension then make sure you've used the correct extension id on your extension page as otherwise the import will not be able to import your extension data on the right page and instead it'll create another page and you'll find yourself with 2 pages...
458 +{{/warning}}
459 +
460 +Verify the value of the fields filled automatically by the import, namely:
461 +
462 +* The page name
463 +* The description
464 +* The authors
465 +
466 +If they're wrong you'll need to publish a new version of your extension and re-import it.
467 +
468 +Edit it and provide nice user-friendly documentation. We recommend the following elements to be present:
469 +
470 +* Description of what the extension does and the features it has (briefly). Provides an overview screenshot if it makes sense.
471 +* Usage: explains how to use it
472 +* Document each feature with some text but very importantly with a screenshot
473 +* Fill the "General Compatibility" section with the minimal version of XWiki your extension requires to be installed
474 +* Fill the "Tested On" section with the versions of XWiki you've tested your extension on. Never remove any existing data from this section since they represent past tests and we need to keep the history.
475 +
476 +Make sure to follow the [[Documentation guide>>dev:Community.DocGuide]]. For example take a special care to follow the [[Image best practices>>dev:Community.DocGuide#HScreenshots2FImages]] (use the {{{{{image}}}}} macro and don't take large screenshots as mentioned).
477 +
478 +Make sure that you add documentation for your extension as soon as it's published on [[extensions.xwiki.org>>extensions:Main.WebHome]]. Otherwise nobody is going to start using it and people will start wondering what it's about.
479 +
480 +Generally speaking check out documentation of existing extensions and try to mimic what you see (don't hesitate to go beyond the quality of what you see; you want your extension to be the most used, right? :) Documentation goes a long way towards achieving this!).
