A few weeks ago during our @website-wg voice chats, we discussed peoples’ thoughts about various tools & platforms for the new ODK web site. There were some decent discussions, but let’s quickly revisit them, just in case opinions have changed, or people have had more time to think. I know I have a few more refined ideas which I’ll share in a reply. (For those of you who feel strongly about any particular platform, this is your chance to speak up!)
Please share your thoughts here by answering the following 2 short questions:
What technical platform (or “non platform”) do you recommend for the new ODK site? This could be anything from a CMS to a collection of HTML files on a web server. Most importantly, tell us why you think your recommendation is the right choice.
Do you see any compelling case for building a custom theme/design template for the ODK site, both short/immediate-term and long-term? A custom design would be considered as creating something “from scratch” as opposed to configuring/“customizing” an existing design with CSS/images.
Please share your responses and any other relevant comments by replying to this topic. As always, thanks for your feedback as we move forward with the web site transition!
