A (UConn brand) standards-compliant implementation of the University's web banner.
As with most of our web branding efforts, University Communications has teamed with the UITS Web Dev Lab to create a new look for the University's web presence. While the majority of university departments and organizations can be brought into brand compliance through the use of the Aurora (WordPress) platform courtesy of UITS, there is still a need for static templates. This project attempts to bridge that gap.
As of May 31, 2017, the
master branch of this repository represents 2.x of the banner. The key differences are outlined below:
|- Designed for use with Bootstrap||- Bootstrap classes removed|
|- Embedded media queries intended to mirror Bootstrap||- No media queries. User must define them.|
|- npm compatible||- composer compatible|
Who should use this?
Anyone building a new *.uconn.edu website that won't be hosting on the Aurora platform.
