Do you have the designer’s work to share with us now, Natalia? Just trying to unblock the progress here …
And for the record for @nadia as we were discussing about this in the H2020 call that ended just now: the original budget allocate to this was on the basis of a simpler tech way to implement this post-to-Discourse interface.
Then somewhere above, me and Hugi decided it makes sense to split things into a Discourse API (“backend”) and a JS/HTML form (“frontend”) so that the tech integrates properly with the JS+HTML minisite tech stack we are building. That tech decision makes the post-to-Discourse interface more expensive / the current budget “tight”, but is nothing of Natalia’s doing.
The current budget would still suffice for the relatively simple interface that Natalia wants, and then we can test the whole system and see if it’s a promising thing to invest in. But I agree with @hugi that UI/UX development that’s up to the standards of UX in one of our H2020 minisites would need additional money.
So it’s the typical “requirements changed while IT project underway” story, and I did not see that coming
