ViUR Sprint 2017

Photo of a coding session at the ViUR Sprint 2017Last week, the ViUR Sprint happened, a meeting that entirely related to our free software development framework. In total, 15 boys and girls from the Mausbrand-staff met for one week in Het Heijderbos, near the dutch-german border, dedicating their time to several topics around ViUR. Many ideas and brainstormings on future developments of the framework were in focus. Also, lots of lightning-talks and discussions on current possibilities were hold. The Sprint was surrounded by several spare time activities, lots of food and common game nights.

ViUR has been moved to GitHub some months ago, whereby we want to advance a transparent and open development process. Meanwhile, the framework has been released in a stable version 2.1 and is continuously improved. We take a great interest in any help to make ViUR easier, more flexible and richer. Information about its benefits, how to use it and where to start can be found here, on viur.is.

Amongst other things, the main topics on the ViUR sprint have been

  • Tips and tricks on multi-lingual systems
  • Improvements and JavaScript-handling in dynamic web forms
  • Revisions and ideas for the HTML editor
  • Screencasts for newbies
  • Search Engine Optimization and Google Tag Manager
  • Progressive Web Apps
  • Context-based programming of ViUR modules
  • Redesign of the administration interface "Vi"
  • Ideas on new data fields and input possibilities
  • Generic role- and rights-management
  • Extensions on the ViUR project base repository and setup tool

Furthermore, the proposal of naming future ViUR releases after volcanoes came up, which we want to introduce now!

ViUR 2.1 is here!
