Continuing the discussion from Considering a general reorganization of this site!:
So, I dropped this thought last night in the Websites and Apps matrix channel, but I suppose I should also write it somewhere more permanent.
Fedocal has served us well for the last seven years (I think actually even before that, but that’s the oldest archived hit). It’s been awesome and incredibly useful. But it also needs an update, both in function and in UI.
I know this is on the Websites and Apps Team radar, which is awesome, because we rely on this tool and some of the improvements would be Kind of A Big Deal.
I want to throw out a thought, though.There is a Discourse Calendar plugin, and … perhaps we could use that? It’s definitely not at feature parity at this point, but maybe it’s something we could contribute to (particularly, the “events” part — see this long thread.)
This just an idea. A re-vamped fedocal would be cool too, but I think we’d largely be going it alone with that. It seems like it might be valuable to join in with some other project. It also doesn’t have to be “use Discourse for everything!”… that just happens to be where I am right now.
