What challenges do you face if you restrict yourself to using templates? I'm a lousy programmer but have a lot of clients asking for even more templates. In the years I've developed a methodology and some best practices.

In particular I zoom in on a case where the client wanted af 'just a slight change to the default graphviz visualisation'.

Includes:

  • experiences and caveats with common extensions
  • using CSS the lazy way
  • the ever lasting struggle of keeping Mediawiki {{{{{somewhat| {{readable|}}}}}}}
