Static sites/pages

These are simple web apps hosted on the IG web server, and linked to from FT.com.

They are 'static' in the sense they are simple files served by Apache – but they are often very dynamic on the front end, and may load data from external services such as Bertha.

Static sites are often started using our Starter Kit and typically use some a few Origami components like o-header and o-footer.

They should always be responsive.

TO COME

Making a static site

There are obviously lots of ways, but the basic process is:

  1. Write some code (perhaps using the starter kit).
  2. Upload it to the IG web server (NB. the starter kit has a built in task for this).
  3. Do everything in the publishing checklist.
