Parrot-Linear-Algebra website needs a redesign

completed by: Daniel Toma

mentors: whiteknight

Task Description: The Parrot-Linear-Algebra (PLA) project adds linear algebra (matrix and vector) support to the Parrot VM. This project has a simple website to display information and documentation at Github. This website is not very attractive, and it needs a redesign.

To complete this task:

  1. Create a fork of the PLA repository on github
  2. Checkout the "gh_pages" branch
  3. Make your modifications on the branch. See especially _layouts/poddocs.html and stylesheets/poddocs.css
  4. Create a pull request on Github to have your changes merged back into the repository

The successful website will be attractive, easy-to-read, and easy to extend/maintain. PLA is currently working on developing a new logo. Any web design which incorporates colors/features of the new logo will be a plus.

Benefits: The PLA project needs a better website to attract new users and to provide information in a way that is easy to read. A better website will attract more users to the project
