Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and Java
I don't blog very often but I still find time to work on my blog's software: Apache Roller.
Recently, I decided to focus on improving Roller's ancient Struts 2-based user interface (UI). I had considered adding a comprehensive API to Roller and building a new UI based on that API, but wow that is a huge amount of work. Instead, I decided to modernize the Roller UI by using Twitter's Bootstrap components and CSS styles.
Roller UI with Bootstrap.
I would love any contributions, so if you are interested in helping out, please submit Pull Requests against the bootstrap-ui branch in the Apache Roller repo on GitHub.
I'm not motivated to write new blog entries but for some reason I was motivated to update my blog's theme. This time I decided to go with Twitter Bootstrap + jQuery. It's responsive, so to speak. What do you think? I think it takes a little too long for the banner image to load.
