Development is happening in the branch feature/common-base-template of the repo web-common.

Development is happening in the branch dev/lukas-grossberger/common-base-template in the relevant frontend repos.

Would someone be so kind to have a look at my modifications to the "" in web-common's dev/lukas-grossberger/common-base-template? I'm completely new to makefiles and think I failed to adjust it to reflect the new directory structure with ccs/ js/ and template/ sub directories, because the hierarchical builds that create and trigger a makefile for web-common fail with errors like for landing:
> make[3]: *** No rule to make target 'taler-wallet-lib.js', needed by 'all-am'. Stop.

ng0 was right (on the mailinglist). I've shown you how to do this in 29c609f..c145e27

That said, with this change *all* scripts that use the new structure must also be updated. Basically, you'll find at the bottom of the a call to AC_OUTPUT([FOO BAR web-common/Makefile]). To that list, we now need to add "web-common/css/Makefile" and "web-common/js/Makefile".

Thanks, Christian. I got it to work together with the matching feature branch in the landing repo. I'll follow that example in the other places as well.

Progress notes:
When trying to port flask powered repos like donations to the common template, "url( ... )" can't be used in templates but instead "url_for('static', filename=' ... ')" has to be used for static files.
Next, try to figure out if "url_for" can be used everywhere, or whether there needs to / can be an alias for "url( ... )" in the jinja context that points to the static equivalent for the flask case.

I'm excited to see Taler progress and regret not having pushed as much as I'd have liked so far.
On my journey to achieve a common base template, a few repos have the common, responsive bootstrap template in the feature branch dev/lukas-grossberger/common-base-template. However, since I couldn't figure out a working local deployment of all Taler components, I wasn't able to update and test all relevant frontend repos to use the common base template.
If someone feels like picking this up from the existing work, I'd be happy to hand it off. I'm not sure when I can put in more time to figure out the local dev setup.
