In occasion of its 37th birthday the GRASS GIS project is proud to present its new website! The site has been redesigned with modern tools to be responsive and also easier to maintain. Content is more discoverable now and easy to browse too.
We chose a static format based on HUGO and all the code and content is hosted in a dedicated repo in GitHub. Nicolas Bozon designed the website theme and many others helped with content curation and creation. In detail, the page content is now written in markdown. Several times a day the website is automatically deployed from the GitHub repository to our internet server at https://grass.osgeo.org/ .
With this new web technology and the availability of the code and content in a public repository, we want to encourage and simplify community members’ participation. If you want your GRASS GIS use cases, blog posts and cool screenshots to be part of if, you only need to create a pull request. No fear, we have a manual for contributions.
We thank all the contributors for their input and help to see this project finally realized! Special thanks to OSGeo as well as individuals for their financial support.
Stay tuned, there’s more yet to come!
