Git, Mercurial and Redmine on OpenNTF?
Niklas Heidloff    



We are thinking about significant changes to the OpenNTF.Org web site, both in terms of UI and functionality.



One goal is to provide version control systems on OpenNTF. Right now projects with multiple owners can use SVN repositories on OpenNTF. We'd like to extend this and also offer Git and Mercurial repositories for all projects.

Another goal is to update the project management UI. In this context Declan Lynch has promoted Redmine for a long time. Redmine is an open source project management application. OpenNTF project owners could benefit from it since, for example, each project can have it's own Wiki and it's own forums. Furthermore Git and Mercurial can be integrated in Redmine.



We'd also like to extend the reach and be present in other established communities. That's why we ask XPages developers to use StackOverflow and that's why we integrated questions from StackOverflow on XPages.info. Another established and growing community especially for open source is GitHub with over 4 million open source repositories. We'd like XPages developers to be able to use GitHub also as version control system for OpenNTF projects. Redmine supports integrating projects from GitHub (with some manual configuration).



Below is a deck describing some of these ideas in more details. Please note that none of this has been committed yet.



There are some technical questions that we need to figure out first. Especially the SSO between Domino and the Ruby on Rails/Apache based Redmine is a challenge. Declan and Bruce found some starting points (here and here) but we'd appreciate help from the community.



There is also plenty of other work. Please contact us if you are interested in implementing certain parts.

REST API to read Projects from OpenNTF
Wed, Mar 26th 2014 2:25a   Niklas Heidloff
There are more than 850 projects on OpenNTF and many different types of projects which makes it sometimes hard to find the projects certain types of developers are looking for. In order to address this OpenNTF introduces the notion of "project spaces" to group similar types of projects together. Example spaces could be everything related to social or everything related to IBM WebSphere Portal. OpenNTF contributors can request spaces if they have contributed several projects and hav [read] Keywords: connections ibm openntf security websphere websphere portal

Overview of the XPages Scaffolding Project on OpenNTF
Thu, Mar 20th 2014 6:11a   Jesse Gallagher
A little while ago, I created a new project from one of my GitHub repositories: XPages Scaffolding. At its core, Scaffolding is the template that I use when creating new XPages projects, and it contains a number of features that I've built up over the years to make the process of building a clean XPages app easier. These range from small utility features like a flashScope object to larger frameworks such as the current versions of my controller and model frameworks.
