The Jolie Documentation repository

This repository manages the Jolie documentation at https://docs.jolie-lang.org/.
If you want to update the documentation, this is not the repository that you are looking for. You have to update the branch of this repository for the relevant version of Jolie, e.g., for Jolie versions 1.10.x, you have to update the branch v1.10.x.

Request message assignment

  • Try to write the message request using inline syntax whenever possible.
    Ex:
    1
    [email protected]( { filename = "test.txt" } )( response )
    Copied!
    instead of
    1
    request.filename = "test.txt"
    2
    [email protected]( request )( response )
    Copied!
  • Use multiple lines if necessary
    2
    filename = "text.txt"
    3
    content = "this is a test message"
    4
    } )()
    Copied!
  • Use deep copy or with in case the request message has several nodes
    1
    request << {
    2
    node1 = "node1"
    3
    node2 = "node2"
    4
    node3 = "node3"
    5
    ...
    6
    }
    Copied!
    or
    1
    with( request ) {
    2
    node1 = "node1";
    3
    node2 = "node2";
    4
    node3 = "node3";
    5
    ...
    6
    }
    Copied!

Fixing a tutorial

    • tutorials/fix/name-of-the-tutorial
      Creating a new tutorial
  • Define a branch name that follows this guideline tutorials/new/short-tutorial-name
  • Actions to take in repo jolie/examples
    • Create a branch with the name tutorials/new/short-tutorial-name
    • Checkout branch tutorials/new/short-tutorial-name
    • Go to folder examples/v1.10.x/tutorials/
    • Create a directory with the short name of the tutorial mkdir short-tutorial-name
    • Go to folder examples/v1.10.x/tutorials/short-tutorial-name
    • Create all the files necessary for the tutorial
    • Commit
  • Actions to take in repo jolie/docs
    • Checkout branch v.1.10.x
    • Starting from this branch create a new branch tutorials/new/short-tutorial-name
    • Checkout branch tutorials/new/short-tutorial-name
    • Go to folder docs/web/tutorials/
    • Create a directory with the short name of the tutorial mkdir short-tutorial-name
    • Go to folder docs/web/tutorials/short-tutorial-name
    • Create file README.md as starting file for the tutorial. Start to write down the tutorial in this file
