It’s just the general question how to add an additional page to Antora UI that is NOT based on .adoc
It's possible to add a completely static page with no templating using the static_files field of ui.yml. However, I'd like to see a way to add a page that does use templating without having to have a corresponding .adoc file. It will require some thinking, but it's something we could achieve.
Hey, quick update: The way @djencks_gitlab described it works :) I Added an empty .adoc file with just title and :page-layout: swagger and as I added this layout to UI before, it immediately worked
Indeed, this is the way to do it today.
Is it possible to point to attachments that are stored in an attachments folder that's not in the same module where the link is being created?
Not yet. That's an open feature request.
Is there a way to setup CI to build PR branches automatically for viewing?
Netlify supports this out of the box. Couchbase has it enabled https://github.com/couchbase/docs-ui/blob/master/netlify.toml (though that example is for the UI, but it's the same thing)
I haven't used component attributes so far.
It's new in Antora 2.3 (alpha). They are scoped to the component version, though in the UI model the attributes from the latest component version get hoisted to the attributes for the component overall.
So ideally I'd prefer to have a way to define the attributes in such a way where the components are in repo A but without having to explciitly include a file in each asciidoc page.
that's exactly what has been implemented in 2.3.0 (alpha)
here's an example:
name: mq-connector title: MQ Connector version: '3.x' nav: - modules/ROOT/nav.adoc asciidoc: attributes: page-component-desc: Connect to Anypoint MQ, MuleSoft's multi-tenant cloud messaging service for the enterprise. page-connector-type: Connector page-exchange-url: https://www.anypoint.mulesoft.com/exchange/com.mulesoft.connectors/anypoint-mq-connector/ page-vendor-slug: msmq page-vendor-title: MuleSoft
we're looking for feedback on this feature.
they are also accessible from the UI model via:
though I'm likely going to change "asciidocConfig" to just "asciidoc" for consistency.
I'd better like to listen to @mojavelinux 's opinion first, because maybe we devise something we can add to Antora to facilitate global navigation trees.
Could you clarify what that was about? Don't hesitate to open an issue. Even if we decide to close it in favor of something else, it is captured.
