This Surfpack Developer's Kit contains essential information for independent developers of web modules and skins for Surfpack Startpage.
All portal components are based on XML and XSL technologies. Prior XML knowledge may help you to understand the manual better, but it is not required because the editor hides all of the XML complexity and provides a graphic interface for content modules and skins development.
Skins are constructed in HTML + CSS and they are then converted to a XSL-format
using the editor. For details see Skins Development.
