18F Offers ‘Federalist’ Platform for Agency Website Development

websiteThe General Services Administration‘s 18F organization has developed the Federalist platform to help government agencies build static websites through the use of automation.

Melody Kramer writes in a post published Tuesday that the White House Social and Behavioral Sciences Team has used the platform to develop its new website and provided feedback to 18F.

“Federalist provides a way for people who are creating this information to get it out to the public quickly and easily, and edit it when they need to,” said Gail Swanson, the project’s lead researcher and designer.

Kramer notes that the platform automates the integration of Amazon Web Services and the GitHub content editor as well as supports Microsoft Azure.

She adds that it also helps personnel without technical knowledge create website content with templates.

Federalist is built to support surges in website traffic and image- or text-heavy content.
