The Goal - Empowering Absolute Beginners to Create and Manage Good Looking Websites After Short Training

This will make web publishing available to people without technical skills, and to people without access to transport and workplaces.

The Pain Points in Web Publishing

Tools and Technical Barriers


There are many tools available to create a website. Most of these tools require technical skills that will take a long time to acquire. Some tools are very limited in what they can do, or generate huge bloated webpage, or require sophisticated premium hosting service, or take a long time to enter data. In some cases websites are abandoned because of the difficulty of maintenance.


Process


Due to the technical barriers, small organizations without a dedicated team of developers and designers often engage the service from a design agency.

In a typical client/agency web design model, both the client and the agency spend lots of time communicating with each other and internally. The expectations are not always 100% understood or met. This model results in long development time, high cost, and sometimes delay in updating websites.


The GoAndMake Solution


The web publishing solution from GoAndMake is summed up in one phrase Git for Remote Administration and Content Editing (GRACE). It provides new tools, removes technical barriers, and improves the processes.

The GoAndMake solution uses Git hosting services to trigger automatic web publishing process, and outputs static, ready-to-serve webpages. Websites built this way are free from maintenance and easy to port. Users can use this solution without knowing Git, the source code management system.

The GoAndMake web publishing solution consists of

* beautiful website templates as a starting point,
* a page builder to customize websites quickly without coding,
* free training materials,
* integration service to publish website and automate tasks,
* a compatible template to use with a static site generator (Hugo) for batch processing and updating. This is optional.

Improvement in Tools


The page builder generates elements of commonly used design patterns, and presents options to style the elements in different ways. Beginners may select from predefined classes to change layout and create unique pages quickly. Designers already familiar with CSS can define and apply new classes, and watch the visual effect in real time without leaving the browser. Data and settings are saved automatically in the browser.

The page builder works on all computers or tablets with internet connection. It runs in a modern browser without installation or setup. The generated pages are responsive, slim and mobile friendly. See this demo and try the page builder for yourself.

Power users can create custom block template, page template and customize all aspects of the page builder.

The GoAndMake solution empowers professional designers to create and deliver projects quickly. They may set up a local development environment with Hugo and compatible theme, create designs with the the page builder, export and feed the page data to Hugo for batch update.  Hugo can load and use external data directly. This eliminates the need and confusion importing data to a database.

Removal of Technical Barriers

The editing and publishing processes have been developed and revised after consulting with absolute beginners. It will be continuously improved as new feedback comes in.

Improvement in Client/Agency Model


The GoAndMake solution empowers small business owners to edit web pages without technical skills. They may still engage the service of a professional designer, but have the flexibility of making minor changes and updates at their own schedule. They can preview changes locally, make experiments for the best effect, and publish when satisfied.

Small business owners may design and manage websites on their own if they have the time and interest to learn. Static websites are maintenance free and thus easy to manage without a team of experts.

Focus on Speed and Ease of Use


GoAndMake solution has a particular focus on speed and ease of use. The website is fast to build, and fast to load. The generated static websites are safe by nature, and can be managed by people without technical skills. It suits small businesses , small organizations and missionary teams who rely on volunteers for IT needs. The page builder itself is a tool for beginners to learn web design skills, get employed or self-employed, and serve in their community.

The name GoAndMake comes from the Great Commission. It also reflects our heavy use of Go, a programming language, and Make, a traditional tool to build computer software.
