GovCMS Drupal 9 websites
Morpht is a member of the Drupal Services Panel and is a leading provider of GovCMS sites to Federal government agencies. We are innovators on the platform and have dedicated ourselves to building solutions which deliver on the common needs of government sites and are continually improved.
Morpht has been a strong supporter of GovCMS throughout its inception and delevelopment. Some highlights include:
- Being included on the Drupal Services Panel.
- Being engaged by the Department of Finance to implement the UI Starter Kit theme and foundations for GovCMS 8.
- Speaking at conferences and meetups about the features and capabilities of GovCMS.
- Being entrusted by major government agencies to build sites and "white label" sites for easy site spin up.
The Australian Government Design System
Morpht has been a strong proponent of the Australian Government Design System. When it was released we believed that it was a game changer. The combination of the design system with a paltform such as GovCMS opened the way for a lot of advantages: efficicieny and consistency. Adding in editor friendly components made it more flexible. This resulted in the development of Convivial for GovCMS, a starter site for GovCMS projects.
Recently (2021) it was announced by the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) that the Australian Government Design System would be no longer supported. The open source community has stepped up to continue this open source project under the name of GOLD. This will ensure the continuity of the design system for those wanting to use it.
This turn of events will necessarily lead to some confusion for government agencies. Should they use the new GOLD design system or head out with something different. For this reason Morpht has committed to supporting two flavours of Convivisl for GovCMS: one for GOLD and another for Bootstrap 5. This two pronged approach will be able to cater for the needs of agencies wanting to go their own way.
