I am trying to follow instructions on the Atlassian Developer site for Confluence Server plugins development (I know Confluence server is deprecated, but I need to develop for Confluence Datacenter and that means I need to develop for Confluence Server on macOS).
I installed the right JDK, installed the macOS SDK for Atlassian, adapted my environment so
JAVA-HOME exist and tried to create an initial project:
% atlas-create-confluence-plugin Cannot find /Applications/Atlassian/atlassian-plugin-sdk-8.2.7/apache-maven-3.5.4/bin/man This file is needed to run this program
(I had to
chmod +x the scripts in the Atlassian SDK bin directory)
maven3 using MacPorts, but that does not change anything.
Trying to find instructions on Atlassian’s Dev site is hard. Most of the time you are somehow rerouted to Jira, even if you are only interested in Confluence.
Can someone tell me what I need to develop a plugin? For one, I do not have a Confluence installation, I’ll need one for testing and I guess it isn’t part of the SDK…
(I started out in Confluence Cloud until I found out that JS plugin will not be usable in Confluence Datacenter). Now I’m back to the start to see how I can get development of a plugin. My project is a ‘spike’ kind of project, I’m looking at feasibility of developing a plugin for what I want — as far as I’ve seen, this is doable, but I need to try it for real). The alternative is to fully develop a Confluence Cloud plugin and then when I succeed do a total rewrite for Confluence Datacenter somehow.
