The code in this repository is what backs the website at www.postgresql.org.
The authoritative repository for this code is on git.postgresql.org, but it's free to be mirrored anywhere.
The website code is written in
Python <https://www.python.org>_ using
Django <https://www.djangoproject.com/>_ framework. Not surprisingly,
PostgreSQL <https://www.postgresql.org>_ is used as the database. Further details
about the code and technology can be found in the different documents in the
The website also uses the
Bootstrap <https://getbootstrap.com/>_ CSS framework
as well as the
Font Awesome <https://fontawesome.com/>_ icon library.
A fair amount of the content pages of the website are just static HTML templates. If you wish to edit these, you only need to look at the templates/pages/ subdirectory. The content in here is simple HTML, and can be edited as such.
We appreciate all (most?) contributions to this project. If you wish to
