Clinker - Software Development Ecosystem (website)


[font="Arial"][size="2"]Clinker is an integrated software development ecosystem. Based on Open Source tools: subversion, trac, redmine, sonar, jenkins, nexus. [/size][/font][font="Arial"]We developed the site using Yii framework.[/font][font="Arial"][size="2"] is a product of klicap.[/size][/font]

[font="Arial"][size="2"]Best regards[/size][/font]

Looks great, I like the layout, images, and the logo. One thing I would change is the active navigation links at the top right so they are more contrasty. Perhaps orange?



Something like that.

Thank you for your recommendation


Hi Manuel,

Any plans to translate the site to English? Also, is this an opensource project?


Hi Manuel,

Could you please tell us what did you actually used from Yii to develop the site? It is too much of a plain site.

Antonio - click this link for some hints:

If it’s true, then it’s Twitter Bootstrap, Yii and some jQuery libs.

Hey Jacmoe!

Thanks. I was just wondering why such a plain site requires other tech but pure HTML and Javascript. I thought it was for the ecosystem they offer and wanted to know if they implemented it with Yii, how they did it. IMHO the site that offers the services is too plain for such a powerful framework.

I know Juan manuel from its blog ( very good reading for spanish resources :)

Hi Manuel,

Please tell us more about your platform and integration… Also, any english versions planned?



Maybe for the back end?

Would be interesting to hear how they used Yii; agreed. :)


we are working translate to english


Hola Antonio:

Te voy a contestar en castellano porque me resulta más cómodo, y sabiendo que lo entiendes, mejor aun.

Yii framework sólo lo usamos para nuestros sitios web, por ejemplo, o Ambos proyectos usan otras tecnologías más acorde al problema que intentan resolver.

Es cierto que el sitio web es plano y que se podría haber implementado con HTML + JS, pero ten en cuenta lo siguiente:

[list=1][]Necesitamos parametrizar algunas variables, y ahí yii nos ayuda[]Queremos un sistema de temas (themes) pensando en el futuro, y ahí yii nos ayuda[]Pronto incluiremos un formulario de contacto, y ahí yii nos ayuda[]Pronto incluiremos un proceso de pago que desarrollaremos con Yii e integraremos con Recurly[/list]

Todo tiene un motivo.

Un saludo

Hello Manuel,

Could you please share your experience integrating Recurly to the application?

You should definitely change the design of the top right horizontal menu when on hover with brighter color. Other than that great design

Hi bettor,

Thanks for your feedback. We are going to review main menu navigator.
