Analog DokuWiki Relaunch
CosmoCode relaunched the Analog Devices product wiki with a new custom design.

The PC CADDIE Wiki wasn't the only DokuWiki we recently helped to relaunch. Our long time client Analog Devices asked for our help to relaunch their project wiki, too.
Analog's designers delivered a basic design which we had to convert into a DokuWiki template. The new template is reusing certain styles from Analog's official website as well as parts of the DokuWiki default template. The latter will make DokuWiki updates much easier as new features can be easily integrated into the design. The template was also prepared to integrate Analog's central asset server later on.
We also took the opportunity to upgrade their Wiki from a 2012 release to the most current one. Analog uses a SAML based Single-Sign-On system to integrate all their websites, forums and other online resources under a single login. Part of the upgrade was converting the old auth backend we wrote for them to a proper auth plugin.
Not only did we upgrade the auth backend, we also upgraded and reevaluated the over 50 plugins used in their wiki. We replaced some outdated ones with better implementations and could even remove some no longer needed ones.
We're happy to have helped to move another Wiki forward in time.
