*NEW* Newscoop Frontend -> on github

    Hi Newscooponians,

    (btw.: who is on the dev list?)

    We have been plotting over lunch about how to create a good space where
    simple Newscoop ideas as well as entire themes can live and be alive.

    The easiest and arguably even best place would be on github. How exactly
    we should do this, I would like to hear from the developers. In my mind
    it is a project like
    https://github.com/sourcefabric
    but called "Newscoop-Frontend" (or similar)

    Each theme in there would be e.g. "Theme-NewCustodian" or something like
    this.
    We could also park best practice examples there and smarty tweaks and
    what not.

    We thought about this, because Pawel seems to be going to some hackfest
    on HTML5 and wants to do something with the Newscoop API (correct me if
    I am wrong).
    Also, I could finally park my latest invention there, rather than have
    it washed away by the many blog posts on our site:
    http://www.sourcefabric.org/en/community/blog/1225/

    Interested to hear feedback from you guys.

    All the best, micz

  • Hey,

    Having all themes in a single Github repo is not a good idea, imho,
    having separate repos is the way to go (as Pawel is already doing in
    his own fork with the rockstar).

    We would only need to come up with a naming convention for those repos
    and that's it. Something like:

    newscoop-the-rockstar-theme,
    newscoop-the-new-custodian-theme,
    newscoop-skyfall-theme ;-)
    ... and so on.

    My 5 cents.


    All Best,

  • yep there could be repo for each theme pack and one more generic for snippets (cookbook).

    advantage of separate repos is that each of them could have it's own wiki and issue tracker on github.
    and if you want to make some changes to e.g. rockstart, you will just fork that and make some changes.

    it would be good to have this generic one with a readme file which would point you to those theme packages so there would be an offical starting point.
