New Shoes Site

New Shoes Site

Hey everyone-

mpapis has been doing amazing work with Shoes lately, and he was
asking me for a place to write publicly about Shoes. And an easy way
to update the manual.

I'd been thinking about re-doing the Shoes website anyway, because
lots of people have told me it's very confusing.

I've been working on a simple version here: http://github.com/shoes/shoesrb.com

It's a very basic site that lets you write blog posts in Markdown and
renders them. Bootstrap for the CSS. I think it's much nicer, though a
bit bland at the moment.

So, I'd #1 like some help, if you're bored. And #2, I want to make a
Team page, and have links to all of our GitHubs on it. If you've ever
gotten a commit into Shoes, you're eligible! If you _don't_ want to be
on that page, or you want something other than your GitHub avatar and
page linked, please let me know.

I'm hoping to get it up and running by Monday.

-Steve

Amazing!

Unfortunately I just left an exam after 4 hours and have my next exam on 
Sunday, leaving Sunday on Wednesday so not time until I'm back in Germany.

But I really like that, I cam remember that in the beginning I once 
turned away from shoes since the home page looked soooo old. So this is 
really nice hope I can help later next week!

Thanks!
Tobi

New Shoes Site

From:

Hey all!

I just wanted to let you know that I've merged
https://github.com/shoes/shoesrb.com/pull/5 and deployed it as the new
Shoes site. If you remember, shoes/shoesrb.com was started a few
months ago as a new site for Shoes, primarily to get away from RedMine
and move to a more static-generated kind of feel. I never quite
managed to finish the last few things, but due to the work of a few
people, especially given pull #5, it's basically good to go.

Given the recent security issues around Rails, today I was faced with
either 1) upgrading Redmine from 2.3.5 or 2) just deploying the new
site. Seemed like #2 was the better option, so that's what I did. I've
also updated the old shoes-web repo to mention that it's not public
any more and we've got the new repo for the new site.

Thanks for all your hard work as usual! You all make a very cheery
future for Shoes.

- Steve
