OuiShare Website

OuiShare main website can be found on ouishare.net. It is written in Ruby on Rails, the V2 site was built by Engage, currently the site is developed and maintained by Pitch Me and Auli.

OuiShare website backend uses Markdown syntax in several fields to enable adding rich text.


The main language for OuiShare website is English. For localization in another language, several texts need to be translated:

  • en.yml file containing texts for navigation bar, is available in Transifex. NB! Transifex is a secondary source just to facilitate translation activities. Up-to-date yml is available via our source code repository and needs to be uploaded to Transifex manually in order to update the translation source. When taking the source via git, prefer "staging" branch as it may be more advanced than "master".
  • Pages, projects and events content needs to be added in backend
