Hmmm, that looks pretty technical to me...
Any chance of doing something nice and easy in WordPress or similar?
Just asking :-)
I cannot speak for those owning this project.
Hugo is most certainly a much simpler solution from a maintenance
perspective. Wordpress (and similar CMSes) is a nightmare to maintain
and always devolves into a mess of plugins (that everyone is too afraid
to change/deactivate for fear of breaking the site), custom PHP snippets
galore, horrible WYSIWYG battles, and a general feeling of dread for
kept to a minimum, this will be a win for libreoffice.org's
maintainability and performance (and likely SEO).
As for Git, this technical barrier is a downside for those unfamiliar:
Those in charge of content may very well not be comfortable with Git. I
should hope that the owners of this project solicited feedback from
those in charge of the site content. It's important that they are
comfortable with such a workflow.
If it weren't for merge conflicts and other VCS-isms I would argue that
learning simple markdown files + a Git GUI would be miles simpler that
learning how to use Wordpress... :)
Yep, Brett gets where the idea to try a static site generator came from.
The editors for the English language site have been mostly TDF marketing
After looking into Hugo, I learned that a lot of our friends are already
- KDE websites
- FOSDEM 2021 virtual booth system
- Indonesian LibreOffice sites https://github.com/libreofficeid
So we see that one local LibreOffice community already preferred a
static site generator.
As I mentioned in an earlier message, there are many opportunities to
improve the online Gerrit editor from the perspective of web content
editing and the improvements would benefit LibreOffice developers as well.
