Since ages I planned to adopt Michael "Chi" Klier's great Typo
They haven't been updated since over 2 years. And I think it's a pity they remain unmaintained, because in my opinion they are some of the very few really good DokuWiki templates out there. I would like to upgrade them, i.e. base them on the Starter template
(so they will be easier to upgrade afterwards), upgrade
to all new features and changes from the last 2 years, and make them responsive
(so they adapt to mobile devices).
Although I planned to do this for over 2 years now, I never get around to do it due to lack of time and motivation. I wonder if I could just treat this project like a client project? If a client asked me to do this, I would estimate the upgrade to take 1 day per template, plus half a day to make both responsive. As my standard daily rate is £400, that would make £1000
(2.5 * 400) my ideal price for each template. The minimum price would be £525
. (I would not include the responsiveness, reduce the amount of work a bit and reduce my daily rate, i.e. 1.5 * 350.)
[1000 GBP = ca. 1225 EUR = ca. 1620 USD]
[525 GBP = ca. 640 EUR = ca. 850 USD]
Could a crowdfunding
crowd be my client? Would you be interested in giving money for adopting good templates? If the response is positive, I would start a project on Indiegogo.
And keep in mind that I am the author of the new DokuWiki template
(and others) and a core member of the DokuWiki development team. That is an indication that the template would be upgraded to high quality
