About JumpStarter for GovCMS
JumpStarter is an advanced starter site for GovCMS with many additional features. It contains all of the standard functionality of GovCMS8 and then extends it to provide an excellent starting point for government agencies and other organisations who are looking to kickstart their site.
Our aim has been to provide a starting point which can be used to build sites which are comparable to the best examples of government sites which have been based on UI Kit. This include sites such as the Health Campaigns, the DTA Beta site and the Health Beta site. We are aiming to take the best of breed concepts from these exemplar sites and then fold them back into JumpStarter.
JumpStarter extends GovCMS by implementing new plugins for layouts, modifiers and components. These extensions slot into the existing patterns of GovCMS and gives editors more flexibility to build beautiful, expressive pages which are standards compliant.
We have also built a Bootstrap 4 version of JumStarter and it is feature compatible with the UI Kit version of the site. It is theoretically possible to switch this site across to a Bootstrap 4 theme with only minor variations, aside from the expected style changes that Bootstrap 4 will bring. If your needs do not include UI Kit compliance, then our Bootstrap 4 version may be of interest. More details to come soon.
Work in progress
Morpht intends to maintain and improve the JumpStarter site and theme. We will continue to incorporate best of breed features we see on leading Government websites, bringing these features into easy reach of agencies want to get up and running quickly with a GovCMS8 website.
