Hi Emily,

Nice mockups!
The wiki uses "gitit", a wiki engine powered by git:
There is a readonly mirror of the backend here:
AFAIK it does not have an API, but it may be something that can be added (I
don't have access, I think Braden or James are the guys to talk to).
A simple endpoint that spits out JSON of today's open hours, this week's
open hours, and any other important information would be cool.

> Hey Davis Makerspace,
> Here's a note update on our recent website committee meeting. At our last
> meeting I showed Ryan the (attached) two mockups in order to choose a
> (layout) direction to move in.
> The red one is more of a simple advert splash page, while the green has
> more opportunities for displaying projects and other dynamic info.
> Ryan and I agreed that we were leaning more towards the green one even
> though the community would be on the hook for providing new content
> (projects, blog posts, photos, tweets, etc) regularly.
> We then talked a little about colors, thinking that it might be nice to
> focus on terracotta and other earthy colors because of the culture in Davis
> is very bicycle, garden, and eco friendly. Using this color chooser
> <http://paletton.com/#uid=1000u0kllllaFw0g0qFqFg0w0aF>, we looked at some
> different color combinations and came up with the following combo:
>> (Others, please free to play around with paletton and provide color
> suggestions at the next meeting.)
> We contemplated porting in some sections of the community wiki was
> possible, like the hours section.
> We also briefly talked about ways to display maker projects on the site.
> One question that we have:
> What is the wiki software we are currently using? And is there possibly an
> API or other way of porting sections of our wiki to a seperate website?
> That is all for now. Hope everyone is having a nice week!
> Thanks always,
> Emily
