Post Devconf 2016, I had a short conversation with Petr Hracek regarding
adding content for Secondary architectures in Fedora. I liked the idea
behind developer portal creation and the way currently it looks like.
Few people know how to work with Fedora Secondary architectures (e.g.
building packages, fixing architecture specific build failures, getting
access to a secondary architecture machines). One of the main reason for
adding Secondary Architectures content is to provide all sorts of required
and updated information to developers or newcomers at one place.
While writing about Secondary Architectures for developer portal, I noticed
that it doesn't fit well in any of the existing sections (taken from master
branch) which is Start a Project, Get tools, Languages & databases, Deploy
and distribute. Meanwhile, I thought why not create a new section which is
dedicated to Architectures in general.
A new section with name Architectures make sense to me where we can include:
* Information for all architectures on which Fedora deal with
* We can have three sub-sections:
* Primary Architectures - ARM v7, x86_64, i686
* Secondary Architectures - PowerPc, s3909x, AArch64
* Other Architectures - Not yet supported in Fedora e.g. Fedora
Remix for ARM
* Each architectures will be explained separately w.r.t. working with that
arch in Fedora
* Including common build failures in packages and possible reasons of
failures will also be useful for a package maintainers to fix build
This is a draft proposal as per my working experience with Fedora. I have
worked a bit on it and attached a screenshot in email how this section
would look like. I understand that work is required to make UI consistent
with developer portal.
I would like to get your opinion/ feedback so that further work can be done
to see it available on Fedora Developer Portal.
I was setting up the development environment for fedora web-portal I
followed guidelines provided in
used Vagrant method. When I execute jekyll serve --force_polling -H 0.0.0.0
command, it says there are some missing files in the content folder. But
actually, files are in there. any solution?

I began to use Fedora few months ago. I'm impressed with the relation that
Fedora have with developers. But I think that it have many things to do
It would be nice to see developers tools on Fedora official repository.
Tools like Robomongo, SQLWorkbench/j etc...
Or even provide a option the add a non-free developer tools where the user
would to install Oracle Instant Client, Oracle Java, Oracle SQL Developer,
Oracle Data Modeler, Secha CMD, Astah UML (they have a community edition).
Tools that thousands developers really use :)
