EGit and JGit Website Updated

Last night, I updated the EGit and JGit websites in preparation of our upcoming release review.

It’s not perfect, but it’s much better than before.

If you’re an Eclipse project, I highly recommend you checking out the Nova theme and new default template. Having a good website for your open source project is critical to how people perceive your work. Put yourself into a user’s shoes who is trying to find information about your project. They will use a search engine and the first thing they will come across is your web page.

You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

  • Like the default template! But I never knew it existed before now. Usually developing for the Eclipse website is so hateful I don't bother, or put it on the wiki.

  • Yap, the new template definitely speeds things up.

    We are striving for a minimal website with just the critical bits of information that people need (downloads, documentation, etc…). Everything else we do on the wiki because it's easier.

  • Chris, the site looks great.

    As for the template, perhaps someone (not me) can send an email to eclipse.org-committers to announce its availability? I mean, I would do it, but no one reads my email anymore.

  • Thanks Denis.

    I posted to the list but it's moderated.
