The Orbis Cascade Alliance has released a Toolkit of customizations for
Primo. The Toolkit is hosted on the Alliance's website, and you can
access it here:
The Primo Toolkit Working Group's goal was to create a curated,
best-of-breed list of Primo customizations and a guide to using them in
your own Primo instance. We've been engaged in this since the fall, and
we're very happy to make this available to everyone today.
Overall there are 29 items included, running the range from guides to
getting started in the Primo Back Office, to how to implement a newly
designed sidebar or add a latest articles tab for journal titles. There
a lot of amazing customizations included. A few are specific to Alliance
institutions, but the concepts and code are available for you to
customize to your own needs.
Our hope is to maintain the Toolkit over the long run, by adding new
customizations and updating the current ones in relation to Primo 5.
More info on that to come though, so stay tuned.
