Playbook in Action - UI Fixes to Implement US Web Design Standards

Ended on 02/26/2016
Winning bid (Dan Siddoway): $400.00


CSS, HTML, and JavaScript

The Playbook in Action is a Python Flask application that simplifies the process of creating agile RFQs and RFPs for digital services for government Contracting Officers and Program Managers. In the application, the user creates a new document by providing the agency, document type, etc. and answers a series of questions about their objectives for the project. The result is a word document version of the RFQ/RFP that can be downloaded onto the user’s computer.

This issue seeks to migrate the front-end design and user-interface from Bootstrap to the US Web Design Standards. The issue will also require that certain CSS classes of text will have distinct styling to distinguish text that will be in the final document and text that is asking questions and providing additional information to the user.

The current styling can be overwritten as is necessary.
