The "Koala" pattern kin customization
The pattern skin
was the nice, customizable standard skin of foswiki
. Its customization
however, is geared towards non-power-users, as it relies on editing wiki topics. People like me used to using source control, dev/production instances, deployement, testing, want something more automatable. This site being based on pattern, I had set up a way to use pattern in a more "software engineering" mode. It consists of 3 modules:
- pattern_files generates a customizable version of pattern, from a twiki/foswiki installation
- koala_files is a set of files "subclassing" pattern for the actual looks of my sites
- koala is the main module using the 2 above, that build from these, and a (minimal) set of definitions site-specific, the actual templates to use. For instance this site uses colas.defs, the site http://koalateam.com uses koala.defs...
