A free and open source DITA CCMS, modelling arbitrary XML in Drupal

26 March, 2015

Drupal has all the elements to build a custom content model that can mirror a DITA specialisation. The really exciting thing is that this data model can be built from the UI, without a single line of code. While there are considerable drawbacks to the usability of the resulting interface, the fact that this is a free and open source implementation means that those who have more time than money could use this implementation as a starting point to build a DITA CCMS that accommodates an arbitrary specialisation.

Landing Page Construction Kit — Part 1: prepare and define

12 March, 2015

In the past months we built several landing pages for different products and startups. To make this easier we created a content collection form. While the advice in that form might not be new, it helped us a lot to have it all in a concise, easy to fill out format. The form has reduced the time we need to create landing pages drastically, so we thought it would be useful to share it with the startup community through this blog post series and as a free download.

Recurring payments in Drupal

5 March, 2015

Drupal is a great platform for commerce. For simple tasks it’s very easy to get started with the Commerce Kickstart distribution, but there’s no consensus on what to use for more complex features. This means you might need to perform a long research to be able to choose a solution for more complex e-commerce tasks. In a recent project we needed a solution for recurring payments, so I thought I’d share the results of our research.
