ARTalks is catalog of art related events and exhibitions. Sponsored by Taishin International Bank it provides the most wide list of art events in Taiwan.
This was existing Plone CMS based portal when SoftFormance team joined the project. We were invited to implement the main feature: live GEO Map with art events in Taiwan.
For this we adopted famous PHP-based Ushahidi map for world disaster events. It took more than 2 months to complete PHP to Python adoption and make it work within Plone CMS. As a result we published opensource package: collective.geo.ushahidi. We not only adopted all logic from Ushahidi but added set of custom features.
Apart from the main GEO work we also helped in-house team build:
- social connections and logins;
- Most Views, Most Popular and Most Commented portlets via 3rd party services and APIs: Google Analytics and Disqus Comments;
- Recommend/Feedback functionality for existing Dexterity content types;
- automated deployment procedures and bulidout.
