#2722 Make a beautiful website for Fantom

srm Thu 22 Nov

Hello,

What do you think about the website ? I think the design of the website looks pretty old and new user may think Fantom is an old abandonned language.

The easiest solution is to move the website on bootstrap or something like that.

An other things, doc should be changed a bit to be more "classic". For example : Methods and fields should be in section object, not outside

What do you think about these two points ?

Hi srm,

I know what you mean, :) but I think the official reply will be something like, "the website is made by techies, for techies" !!!

If you've not seen it, I have created my own website for Fantom that is in fact (as you mention it) based on Bootstrap 3:

http://fantom-lang.org/

Does this site look any better? I'm open to suggestions.

Also, I'm not sure what you mean by "classic" or "section object" but I have thought that maybe methods, fields, and ctors should have their own section headings as oppose to a general "Slots". (Even though some methods with no arguments may be called like fields.)

I also host the Eggbox pod repository which hosts documentation for many 3rd party pods - http://eggbox.fantomfactory.org/

The docs are based on the Fantom website to give continuity, such as afBedSheet::HttpRequest - do these look any better? I've thought about re-hosting the core Fantom pods on Eggbox but am not sure if there's any benefit to it.
