Fork it all

I just forked Roller on Github.

The new project is called Rollarcus and is mostly just an experiment and, I hope, a learning experience. I've got some ideas about stripping Roller down to it's core and making it more fun and easy to develop and deploy. We'll see how far I get.

arcus rolling cloud

In case you don't already know, an arcus cloud is a low, horizontal cloud formation.

UPDATE: The most significant of the changes that I made in Rollarcus have been applied by to Apache Roller and today (August 18, 2013) I removed the Rollarcus repository from Github.


So I guess you plan to make cloud-ready version for Roller ;-) Which cloud provider will you target?

That is one of my goals, but I don't like the idea of targeting one cloud provider. For now I just want to simplify Roller and drastically reduce the number of modules, dependencies and old legacy stuff that is not fun to work with like Struts and Spring.
