Hi Patrick and all,

it’s about LibreCat. My initial question would be how to adapt LibreCat for my own institution from a user interface point of view.

I had a look at the LibreCat wiki, but couldn’t find information on how to change (UI related) code systematically. It’s obvious that Template-Toolkit is used for templating purposes and bootstrap as CSS framework, but I couldn’t find some sort of theming approach (per instituition). It seems that the code is very much tied to University Bielefeld as the master branch contains hard coded links[1].

Is there a place where coding conventions/rules are documented?
I get confused by e. g. things like the images folder[2]: camel case, hyphen, uppercase, german/english names, gif/jpg/png file format.

Thank you,
