Exploring and building open [source] software for tech-savvy educators and OER publishers

Paul Hibbitts of Hibbitts Design is currently focused on helping other tech-savvy educators use the combination of the modern file-based Grav CMS with the Git (e.g. GitHub, GitLab, etc.) ecosystem as an open, collaborative, and flexible personal publishing platform.

Current Projects

All of the below projects are built with the Grav CMS (which recently passed 10K GitHub s) and are available for download at getgrav.org. Grav requires a Web server with PHP 7.1.3 or higher.
