I am currently working on a course project with a group of students where we develop features for OpenMRS related to the categories of documentation, new features/bug fixes, and testing. Currently, we are focusing our efforts on documentation and were considering improving the parts that help new module developers get started.
We found this project on the OpenMRS github and were wondering if it would be beneficial to update the “Making your First Module” page to explain how to use GSP rather than JSP as the web interface. The way we understood it, the new reference application has become the standard, which requires developers to use GSP. This is an issue in the documentation that we ran into earlier in the semester when we had an assignment to develop a new module, and would have found something like this very useful. We assume that other new developers would feel the same way.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. We appreciate any input you are able to provide.
