About Fedora Websites

The key goals of this effort include:

  • Consolidating all key Fedora websites onto one uniform scheme
  • Maintaining content that doesn't fall under any particular sub-project
  • Generally, making the sites as fun and exciting as the project they represent

In order to better achieve these goals, as well as to benefit the community, the work of this project will involve third-party site maintainers where possible. The direct work of this project is limited to the formal Get Fedora site.

Work on specific sections of the sites will be coordinated by the appropriate projects. A great deal of coordination will be necessary with the Fedora Infrastructure Team , Fedora Documentation Project and the Fedora Marketing Project .

For a list of community websites, see the Community Websites page.

Resources

CSS and Images

All CSS files and images used in Fedora sites can be found in our fedora-web.git repository. The community may use the css directly from our urls in a cascading implementation.

We encourage using the stylesheets in a cascading method when working on official Fedora Project domains (sites on this list): Websites/DomainsList

All websites based on bootstrap use the same basic CSS file. Any specific stylesheet needs to be written in the website's app.css file. Don't modify the main bootstrap CSS.

Fedora CSS in your application

Load the Fedora CSS file bootstrap.css Load a Specific app CSS file app.css

And then load your custom css file and override elements as needed.
