Subject Experimenting with a bootstrap-based skin
Date Fri, 06 Feb 2015 07:46:32 GMT
Hello all,

As part of improving our web site, a colleague of mine made a first stab at creating a boostrap
based skin. The result can be seen at So far the skin is only in our own svn repo,
but if successful, the intention is to make it available to the Forrest community.

Known issues:
* Several features of Forrest are not yet supported, such as warning and note elements (they
will be rendered roughly as regular p elements).
* most of the menu items and tabs are presently untranslated
* it has the same inflexibility as other skins (but Dispatcher has turned out to be way to
heavy, memory consuming and slow for our purposes, so that is not an option)

BTW, the i18n implementation you find there is a post-processing hack, due to the lack of
i18n support in the Cocoon/Forrest CLI. We build the static site once for each locale, and
then merge them into one site while injecting the language choice menu. We need the static
version, as Forrest is not stable enough to be run dynamically (at least not in our case).

Feedback is welcome.
