FLUID is an ambitious but critically important project to boost the user experience in academic community source projects and other web applications. It is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
FLUID is an international community of academic institutions, community source software projects and corporations working together to address the precarious values of usability, accessibility, internationalization, quality assurance and security within academic software projects.
The FLUID project will create a user interface architecture that enables the creation and consistent use of modular, reusable, and swappable user interface components. The project will develop a living library of robust, usable, accessible UI components, which can be reused across applications, contributed to, and evolved by the community.
