Future

The Pombola codebase was originally written for the Kenyan site mzalendo.com. It has since been modified to support other sites around the world, notably several in Africa.

We want the code to be easy to use for other installations, but currently there are some rough edges.

Acknowledgements

Thanks also to Browserstack who let us use their web-based cross-browser testing tools for this project.
