About Luggage

Overview

Luggage is a platform for creating websites, targeted at academic websites for departments and researchers.

The platform is built on Drupal and consists of features that come with configuration. For example, the People feature contains a prebuilt content type appropriate for displaying a group of people divided into subgroups of your own choosing (faculty, staff, etc.) along with a view. Here's an example.

Luggage Site Builder

Luggage Site Builder: builds websites starting with Luggage.

We encourage Luggage Site Builders to retain the Luggage update/upgrade pathway and leverage the flexibility to extend luggage. Luggage is built to scale and stretch.

Luggage UX (Experimental)

Luggage UX contains several user experience add-ons that improve the look and feel of a Luggage site.

Warning! Luggage UX is experimental and is under active development. Use at your own risk!

Testing

Navigate to /sites/all/modules/luggage/ in a Luggage site of your choice. Then run git clone git@github.com:rlfrahm/luggage_ux.git and make sure to enable the module.

Meaningful Content

HTML elements like headings, subheadings, lists, and tables carry important meaning, and the correct use of these elements improves the experience and navigation for all users. Suitcase is built on a semantic HTML foundation, and content editors are equipped with the tools to create content with a meaningful structure.
