This is not an exciting new project, I feel I have enough on without additional new projects so my plan it to use the Hackathon time to sort out some of the backlog on an existing project, but I’m also interested to see what exciting new projects are created at the event…
I’m planning on asking (in advance) if the five co-ops, that need adding / deleting, for content so they can get included during the CoopHack, they are:
Form and Function (taking the place of Graphics Co-op who would need removing)
I’m also planning on trying to reduce the number of issues in the queue, some help with this would be great.
I was thinking of just doing work on the dev version of the site during the event and then for the presentation on Saturday afternoon, showing the current live site and work we have done on the dev site for comparison and then clicking the GitLab CI button to make the updates live.
I’d really like to work with some other people on this, I’d be happy to show people how to edit the site both in the GitLab IDE (the web based editor interface) and locally using the
git CLI and a proper editor (only one option here I’m afraid,
vim) and how Jekyll works and the GitLab CI processes we have in place.
There is also a need for help with things I’d rather leave to people with more skills in these areas:
Writing copy and metadata for the site, almost the services and technologies are missing descriptions and could also do with have a few sentences of content adding.
This is a big ask! Currently the services icons have been cobbled together from lots of different places and we are missing SVG versions — if anyone is able to take on designing a new set of icons to replace the existing ones, that would be amazing.
