Technology Radar

This layout is inspired by the Thoughtworks' Technology Radar.


Create a folder for the technology radar, e.g. /src/radar Copy the file radar.{lang}.json and rename it as the folder name, this will make the json file Eleventy data file.

The default radar.{lang}.json file includes definitions for categories and rings. You can change them accordingly, but

For each of the categories, create a page with - appropriate template suffix- and a folder with the same name.

Under each folder place the item files.
