February 4, 2018
In order to improve loading performance and ensure better security, the MoodleBox project website has been completely rewritten. It now uses Hugo, a static site generator, instead of the WordPress CMS. Using a static site generator has several advantages over the use of a CMS, including
- The website is more efficient and very fast to display for users,
- The maintenance of the web server is much simpler, since there is no dynamic language or database; we gain in robustness and resilience,
- There are no security problems related to dynamic languages or databases.
In terms of functionalities, there is no change for users, even if the layout has been adapted.
