We need to discuss how we want to make our default templates and which and how we want to make things configurable. We've already discussed and almost agreed on making things like the title, html tag, meta tags a TypoScript object. However we still need to make a concise plan for what should be configurable and how it should be configurable.

Currently I see three different ways to configure things:
  • Global configuration in Settings.yaml (across sites)
  • Site specific configuration via TypoScript
  • Node specific configuration #48363

The other end of this is how and what we should provide in our default template. The goal is that the implementation shouldn't overwrite the template unless absolutely necessary to make version updating as easy as possible. Add to this we should provide a clean and simple, yet ready to use and up to date html5 implementation as the default (like html5boilerplate1 and the like).

Possible discussions:
  • Conditional html tags
  • Title
  • Meta tags
  • Script tags
  • Link tags (styles)
  • Favicon
