August is traditionally a lull time for many folks in the Northern Hemisphere, including developers. Our mojoPortal folks have been heads-down on new projects – here are the highlights.
i7 Media has released their first html5mojo skin, SwiftBlue v1. From Joe Davis of i7Media: “SwiftBlue is the first in a series of template skins developed by i7MEDIA for mojoPortal. It was designed as a contribution to the mojoPortal community and the html5mojo project. SwiftBlue has been created with semantics-friendly HTML5 Markup.”
mojoPortal officially released the mojoPortal Skin Exporter for Artisteer 4 - this plugin for Artisteer allows designers to create a template in Artisteer, and directly export it for use in a mojoPortal implementation. While Artisteer 4 is still in beta, this is a great step forward in being able to create templates quickly and easily for use in mojoPortal websites.
The mojomo project was launched by Allan Duff - from the Codeplex website: “The point of this framework is to let you design skins for mojoPortal quickly and easily using the tools provided, but it can easily be configured to let you work with the lightweight CSS framework of your choice; swap in your own CSS or LESS files for typography, layouts and grids and liberate your CSS and best practice snippets for reuse.”
mojoPortal now available on Windows Azure Web Sites - mojoPortal was spotted in a screenshot in this article, right between Joomla and Orchard.
