Recreating the Bolts website on Github

Postby Kunda1 » Sun Sep 02, 2018 7:13 pm

Referencing https://github.com/berndhahnebach/BOLTSFC/issues/1
This is what the website used to look like from July 19, 2017:
https://web.archive.org/web/20170719105 ... index.html
What if FC adopted it and resurrected it under the FC GH repo ?
It could run on github.io

Here is the website source code:
https://github.com/jreinhardt/BOLTS/tre ... ources/0.4
It's in markdown so migrating it to github.io should be easier.

What does the community think ?

I know that bernd forked the BOLTS repo, but is it functional on v0.17/0.18? The last commit was more than a year ago.

In the end, it will depend on if someone volunteers to migrate the website and maintain it... And quite possibly, maybe this should be associated with bernd's BOLTS fork rather than with the FreeCAD project.

I use BoltsFc from addon-manager. It is fully functional.

Hey @theschrader
Love you work and contributions.

Rest easy, my friend. The proposal AFAICT is not about changing bolts. It's about adopting the website that @jreinhardt was maintaining for the Bolts project.

@jreinhardt How's it going? As you can see, there is an interest on my end to resurrect the BOLTS website. Would that be Ok with you? Also would you have some time to help explain to me how to get it back up? Thanks in advance!

That's a long shot. jreinhardt has not visited the forum since 2015. He was last active on Github in 2016.

Edit: although he did comment the issue about the website being down in Oct. 2017. https://github.com/jreinhardt/BOLTS/issues/176

I wonder if it's as simple as moving his files to a new repo and enabling the user.github.ion feature which automatically turns the repo in to a hosted website?

hi guys I missed the last posts.

I forked the repo because the addon manager installs from a gitrepo. It is not possible to install bolts from the orginal bolts repo. That is why I made boltsfc git repo from which is possible to install with addon manager. https://github.com/berndhahnebach/BOLTSFC

Development (at least my one) takes place on https://github.com/berndhahnebach/BOLTS I have fixed some minor stuff and added some more profiles. Furthermore there is a branch which implements a backend for Nemetschek Allplan.

I tried to get in contact with jrheinhard but he did not answer. It would be great if would get BOLTS a new home.

The BOLTS website is based on some Python web frame work but I can not remember which one. The code is on github too.

Perhaps @kkremitzki would know better? He set up the FreeCAD dev blog which is on some sort of python framework as well.
