Polishing ask.opennms.eu – opennms-forge on GitHub

I’ve spend some time to customize the default theme for ask.opennms.eu. Our Q&A board is running on question2answer. They run also a market place where you can find free and closed source stuff. We used the Pixel n Grain Light theme which is licensed in GPLv2. We have customized it a little bit and published the theme on GitHub where you can – of course fork it – open issues for the theme. If you want to customize it, you can now pretty easy search and replace the color codes, it was before a little bit tricky.

We have also installed a plugin which adds additional fields for a question. It is required to provide the OpenNMS version and optional information about the Java version, PostgreSQL version and the operating system.

Mentioning GitHub – we have opened an organization on GitHub which should represent a melting place, a playground or an incubator for ideas around OpenNMS. The organization is called opennms-forge. It contains mostly little projects or tools which are not commercial supported and help using OpenNMS.

I have also moved our conference management system (frab) from sqlite3 database to a MySQL – so I can sleep now and the availability should be better. I have all websites in monitoring and recognized some issues with locked files with sqlite3 and got web access issues to the page. Since I’ve moved it to MySQL this issues seems to be gone.

In hope see you on the OpenNMS User Conference in Southampton

Thanks for all the fish and happy asking and answering
