Greetings all,

I've pushed the migrated website to the KDE git server. The content 
should be there, but I welcome anyone willing to help check it out 
before the drupal site is retired. While Pat and I have done our best to 
preserve all of the content, nothing is perfect; things like checking 
links and making sure pages important to you are still there need to be 

The site is built using hugo ( and is available as a 
single, pre-built binary.

To view the site locally:
1. Download or install hugo v0.19 and put the binary in your path
2. Check out the website source from git clone 
3. cd /path/to/digikam-org
4. In a terminal, run the command "hugo serve" (no quotes).
5. Open a web browser and go to http://localhost:1313

If you'd like to modify the theme:
1. cd digikam-org/themes/hugo-theme-digikam/scripts
2. npm install
3. bower install
4. npm run server
5. cd digikam-org
6. hugo serve

I'd like to make the gulp task for "npm run server" run hugo in the 
digikam-org root instead of in digikam-org/themes/hugo-theme-digikam/ 
but have not found time to do so.

I'm working on making it easy to translate the site, there are strings 
in the i18n folder. You can see the hugo website for more information 
about running hugo and digikam-org/themes/hugo-theme-digikam/ 
for a few more useful npm commands to build the site. At some point 
these instructions will get more detailed and be available on the 
digikam site.

The theme currently lacks character and is very boring. We'll be working 
on it and are open to suggestions.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
