Welcome to the GnuSkin
The GnuSkin is conceived to be simple and functional, providing a basic and yet useful environment suitable for production use. It uses the WebMenu
concept, first introduced by the TWiki:Plugins/TigerSkin
, and reintroduces the WEBLOGO idea making it possible to completely tailor fit the looks of the TWiki installation.
So named because of the hidden Gnu head and, of course, its simplistic design. It was originally designed for the GNU Hurd
Wiki web, but is now easily available to other people as well. See the historic notes, below, for more trivia.
comes with a plugin, an extra rendering engine, responsible for handling the WebMenu
and other small but useful features.

- WebMenu, a user configurable navigation bar on the left hand side, with topic content on the right.
- Top menubar including the main features of TWiki.
- Per web configurable logotypes, background colors and style sheets (CSS).
- Fully compatible with the SessionPlugin allowing logon and session management.
- Separate the WebMenu from the GnuSkin making it optional and also making it available for different skin users.

The TODO list is located at HurdWiki
:TWiki/GnuSkinTodo it lists things I want to include in upcoming releases.
Originally the idea of using a skin different from the original TWiki look was born on HurdWiki
:/Hurd. Unfortunately the available skins and plugins where either too bloated or only designed for one type of user agent in mind. The idea of the GnuSkin
was born. It started out as a rip off the famous TWiki:Plugins/TigerSkin
. Since then all of the templates have been remade, leaving only the Perl plugin part relativly unchanged.
The design is intended to be more like a general GNU
web page with a lean & simple interface, yet still stylish and functional. Originally the GNU/Hurd website
modeled for the looks and on top of that a few bells and whistles from TWiki are added.
