NiFi documentation source files?

Weddle, Mark

Hello,

 

I’m writing documentation for Ciena’s Blue Planet Analytics product. Engineering is implementing Apache NiFi to gather data from devices instead of the data acquisition API. BPA will include NIFI templates built for BPA; all users need to do is follow them. I planned to document only the templates and refer users to the NiFi documentation for everything else. However, some customers, like Verizon, believe BPA documentation should document NiFi; they don’t want to have to jump back and forth, so I’ll include some fundamental NiFi topics in the BPA doc and refer users to the NiFi doc for advanced details.

 

Can you provide the name of someone on NiFi documentation team that I can work with to get the documentation source files?  Although I can copy the HTML text from the website, having the text source files and graphic originals would save a lot of time.

 

Thank you!

HI Mark,

As Apache NiFi is an open source project, you are welcome to all of the source files, including the documentation, available here [1] and mirrored to github as well [2]. The documentation source, written in asciidoc, is in the nifi-docs module of the project [3].

[1] https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=nifi.git
[2] https://github.com/apache/nifi
[3] https://github.com/apache/nifi/tree/master/nifi-docs/src/main/asciidoc

Cheers,
Kevin
