Legislative Assembly of the Autonomous Region of Madeira
Official website for the Legislative Assembly of the Autonomous Region of Madeira (ALRAM), featuring legislation, session summaries, biographies of all representatives, the agenda of the President and of the commissions, and assorted information related to the legislative process on Madeira Island.
The site is mostly in Portuguese, although a few parts have been translated into English.
All developed based on Carrington JAM, with a text-only version using Carrington Text (with several tweaks), and a mobile version using Carrington Mobile.
SINFIC is a Portuguese company spanning several areas, including IT, and regularly works for the regional government of Madeira Island.
For this WordPress-based website, the actual development was hired to an independent freelancer, working on top of a design provided by ALRAM itself.
The biggest advantage of the Carrington framework is to eliminate duplication of code, by neatly separating templates into its constituent components, and assembling each bit as necessary. The ability to pull different PHP scripts for each component depending on category, page, etc. was also employed to facilitate overall development.
