Convert Pages from APT to Twiki Format

If you want to move long content from apt pages (e.g. Maven-site plugin based content) to the Wiki, there is a way to automize that!


Step-By-Step Guide

  • Copy all .apt files that you want to convert into one folder (unless you are savvy with the command line), e.g. D:\website-update.
  • Download Doxia with dependecies as a JAR into that folder from here:
  • Open the command line and browse to D:\website-update.
  • Make sure Java is on your path by running > java -version.
  • Run the following command and replace <infile>.apt and <outfile>.txt and outfile accordingly:
    D:\website-update>java -jar doxia-converter-1.2-jar-with-dependencies.jar -in <infile>.apt -from apt -out <outfile>.txt -to twiki
  • Create a new Wikipage for the content and open it for editing.
  • Open the file <outfile>.txt with a text editor and copy and paste the content into a Twiki markup editor.
