PSA: Renaming the web repo

PSA: Renaming the web repo

What’s happening?

We will be renaming the current web repo from AdminLTE to web

Why is this happening?

The web repo started off life a long time ago as a fork of popular admin dashboard template AdminLTE (building on their demo template). What we probably should have done in retrospect was start from scratch and embed the js files etc – hindsight is 20/20, and we didn’t know as much about developing websites back then!

These days, the repo is no longer representative or recognisable as a fork of AdminLTE, but the name has stuck – and this can be confusing to some. In recent years, we have been referring to it as web in release notes, so web seems as good a name as any without using the name of another project

When is this happening?

At some point in time after this PSA, certainly before the heat death of the universe. Well, depending on factors.

What do I need to do?

Nothing! This shouldn’t affect anybody’s installation as Github is clever enough to do automatic redirects for renamed repos (providing we don’t create a new repo called AdminLTE)
