|[cross-project-issues-dev] Eclipse Shields Server|
Hi, finally I had some time to make a "proof-of-concept" for an Eclipse Shields server. The idea is to have "shields.io"  like little images, which can easily be embedded into web pages, showing some information about Eclipse Foundation projects. I did start with a basic shield which does show the project name and current released version. See it embedded in the README  The solution is a plain Java EE project, re-using the project information which is already in the Eclipse PMI and which is accessible using JSON anyway. So there is no need to put in data twice. Currently you can create shields using the following URL: https://shields-ctron.rhcloud.com/project/<project id> - e.g: project id = technology.package-drone There are a few things missing, like caching, in order to reduce the load. But I do have a: - A running instance on OpenShift : https://shields-ctron.rhcloud.com (not very useful with additional parameters) - A project on GitHub  - An implementation for a Project/Latest version shield Of course the missing stuff can be added quickly. More shield types and designs are not that hard as well. But before I continue, I wanted to get some feedback if there is interest in such a service, if the project itself, including the source code and the service could/should be moved to the Eclipse Foundation. What additional shields would be of interest. Let me know what you think Jens  http://shields.io/  https://github.com/ctron/shields/blob/master/README.md  https://github.com/ctron/shields -- IBH SYSTEMS GmbH D-85235 Pfaffenhofen an der Glonn LÃutenring 43 GeschÃftsfÃhrer / CEO: Dr. Thomas Heitzig Amtsgericht MÃnchen Handelsregister Nummer HRB 197959 USt ID: DE267945175 Office Munich D 80992 MÃnchen Agnes-Pockels-Bogen 1 T +49 89 18 9 17 49 0 The information transmitted is intended only for the person or entity to which it is addressed and may contain confidential and/or pivileged material.
