New Qubes Website! New Whonix Website?

Good point but I think you need to define who our user is and their skill level and take it into account when planning the redesign.

ura design does graphics and artwork for opensource projects on a pay what you want basis (meaning you can set it to zero). Seems they’ve done work for many large projects including Red Hat and Mozilla. They are worth a try:

I think this is defined above. In summary… Super simple. As simple as possible. For layman. And once you imagine that, go simpler.[quote=“HulaHoop, post:46, topic:1736, full:true”]

Awesome! Didn’t know such a service exists. Should we discuss contacting them in this thread or make a separate one?

OK shouldn’t we cater for those whose skills are so simple that they don’t use a search engine to find the appropiate links?

:slight_smile:

A separate one is better.

definitely , If they dont charge too much I would be willing to contribute some “Fiat Paper” (Money) to that cause :wink:

Good day,

I’ve just created a small guide on the wiki on how to use Jekyll inside a Whonix Workstation. You may find it here: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Working_on_Jekyll_inside_Whonix_Workstation
Will now finishing porting over my code to Jekyll. Shouldn’t take to long and make the whole thing editable.

Have a nice day,

Ego

Please don’t use these strange links. These are likely a bug introduced in current mediawiki version. Please use https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Working_on_Jekyll_inside_Whonix_Workstation instead. (upper left -> page -> page)

Good day,

Ok, thank you, just edited that. Didn’t notice the URL was messed up.

Have a nice day,

Good day,

Just finished porting everything over to Jekyll. Took longer than anticipated and the mobile mode seems to not work without JS, which is why I had (and still have) to rewrite quite a lot of code.

Thanks to these changes, the site is now editable over prose.io and also uses Github pages as a hoster. You may find it here from now on: http://egobits1.github.io/ Furthermore, here a link to the porse page of it: http://prose.io/#EgoBits1/EgoBits1.github.io

Have a nice day,

Good day,

Just wanted to add that while I will extend this prototype on my own, adding more and more elements and sites, I’d be grateful for any kind of input, both positive and negative, you may have. The aforementioned “showcasing” on the blog for more critique should be possible as well, now that I’ve been able to move to Jekyll as a base and Github for hosting.

Have a nice day,

I was still waiting for the latest design conclusions being implemented. Most importantly switching to a bright design for the first impression.

Good day,

Right, somewhat lost focus there. Forgot the whole exchange completley while the whole “Jekyll implementation” was done.

Good day,

So, after having tried to simplify the basic design of my old concept for a bit, I’ve realized that getting my code into a Jekyll friendly form takes quite some time. Thus, I’ve decided to look into alternative templates/bases which could be used by us to base a new web presence on. My main requirements for such a new template were:

  • Must not be focused on blogging alone.
  • Has to have both a presentable and modern apparence.
  • Must be easily customizable and.
  • Must work when accessed via the TBB on the most strict security settings.
  • Public domain, GPL or MIT license.
  • No JavaScript except for mobile.

Now, the reason for choosing to not exclude JavaScript alltogether is that there is literally not a SINGLE template that solves its “mobile version” without JS. So, that will still have to be “patched” out by hand.

Keeping these six attributes in mind, I went on my journey to find a new template. In the end, the only template capable of meeting all requirements was this one: http://cirrus.cloudvent.net/

Now, looking at it, it is not that much more simple than my current design. So the question whether switching is viable would be appropriate.

Obviously, starting from zero would be possible as well (and probably not take as long as modifying the current design does).

In conclusion, I’d appreciate some input.

Have a nice day,

Ego

The requirements sound reasonable. The http://cirrus.cloudvent.net/ template looks like it could do everything we need. Which implementation path is best, I have no idea. Since you’re the one implementing it, I guess it is best if you go for some personal criteria. What looks most easiest, or most fun to implement, best maintainable long term.

FYI, current discussion on qubes-devel list re: qubes doc platform: https://groups.google.com/d/msgid/qubes-devel/c334d9cc-8060-442e-9136-b158f82d2c41%40googlegroups.com

Also, I have no idea what this relates to but a unified search (forum+docs) would be great :slight_smile:

Good day,

Was talking about input in regards to the question whether or not I should use the mentioned template, start from scratch or continue the current effort. Still, thank you very much for the linked discussion.

Have a nice day,

Ego

Btw another super simple website, I guess: https://getlantern.org (the domain name is not that great, though, just lantern.org would be better)

Good day,

May be able to orient based on that, since sadly using it as a base isn’t possible, as it uses Cactus instead of Jekyll.

Have a nice day,

Ego

Good day,

What do you think about these sites: https://apricityos.com/ and https://elementary.io/ Just so I have a few more things to orient on.

Have a nice day,
