Open Source Web templates



One of the things that I’ve really not looked at until lately is the use of open source web templates. I don’t know why but I’ve never really paid much attention to the thought of templates outside of those for a cms platform like wordpress or ezcontents, etc. However, recently I’ve started a site redesign for someone that wanted to use a template. So, an article on open source web design caught my attention.


There is a site oswd.org which hosts open source templates, well… it did, but they’ve had server issues and are moving to a new server. They’re currently offline (how is it I always seem to find out about these things when they’re offline..? I just don’t sit and websurf much I guess…)

Anyway, I found an oswd user andreasviklund.com who has links to a few sites with templates that were formerly (and hopefully soon again will be) hosted at oswd.org. There are links to some of his templates, ztml, which has a number of oswd templates. (strange to navigate – a straight browse instead of search might be nice… anyway…) Here’s one more. And yet, another.

Anyway, hopefuly the oswd.org site will be back up soon, from what I’ve seen they have archived some nice open source web templates.

Hopefully oswd.org will come back, but there are already a couple other options. openwebtemplates.com which is just a frontpage at this point. openwebdesign.org looks to have some templates from the old oswd site. This last site seems to have over 1200 templates at the moment so it would be a GREAT place to check out.
