Hello, amazing Kirby community!
This forum, Kirby in general, and the whole Kirby community are incredible. There is so much to learn, so much being shared, and just a fantastic atmosphere.
That’s one of the main reasons that Constantin (@Constantin) and myself (Mathieu) decided it was time to give back. We discussed for days in a row the best way to do that and decided that creating a website dedicated to Kirby Tutorials was the best way to go.
We started creating Macotuts a few weeks ago and are extremely excited to finally share it with the community!!
This website is entirely dedicated to Kirby. The most important part for us was to put the tutorials front and center and to create an interface that made it super-easy to find tutorials and read them. And the best part about it? It’s written in English and French! (Alright maybe not the best part for everyone )
We’re really trying to target every type of audience with the tutorials. Some of them are the absolute “basics” like how to install Kirby on a server. Some are more complex (how to add filters to the Starterkit), and some we except will teach something to even the most experienced members of the community. We’ve got a few tutorials already that are here mostly for benchmarking. We want to hear your thoughts. Which is the best type? What do you think is missing?
In the MacoList, we’ll be sharing each week some of the best resources and links about Kirby. The first MacoList is dedicated to what we used to build this website. Everyone can share a link with us and we’ll do our best to include it With the MacoList, we wanted to create the Codrops Collective of Kirby stuff.
Our focus: a great user experience
We both love obvious and efficient UX. We did our best to make this one of our main goals in Macotuts. We’d love to hear your thoughts on things like the tutorial navigation, the tutorial categories and difficulty filters, and the rest of the site of course
Performance = Better UX
We worked very hard to achieve very high page speed. Getting 100/100 on Google’s page speed insights was as much a challenge as a learning experience. How does the site perform for you? It’s hosted in France without a CDN for now.
We have a lot more tutorials in the works, and can’t wait to see your feedback to adjust on our current tutorials.
We’re very open to external contributors. If you want to write tutorials for Macotuts, or share a tutorial already written on another site, send us an email!
We can’t wait to hear your feedback !!!
