Louisville debuts mobile-first website

The city of Louisville, Ky., joined the ranks of the “mobile-first” brigade when it unveiled a new website last week using the Drupal content management system as the basis of its content strategy and migration plan.

In announcing the website, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer acknowledged the importance of web services to the success of municipal governments. "We live and work in an increasingly digital world, and one of our top goals is to make more data and services available online," Fischer said.

To do that, the city contracted with Fig Leaf Software to create a platform that made it easier for mobile users to navigate the site. The firm implemented the mobile-oriented design using Drupal on the Acquia platform.

It also incorporated the Google Search Appliance, a rack-mounted device providing document indexing and search functionality that can be integrated into an intranet, document management system or website.
