Should I use Rivet?

Whether or not you use Rivet depends on the system you’re building. You may find that the IU Framework fits your needs better.

Yes, use Rivet

  • Internal-facing web applications that consist of dynamic, user-generated content
  • Enterprise systems that are used by large parts of the IU community and require CAS authentication
  • Task-focused applications that are technically separate from your department or organization’s website

Use the IU Framework instead

  • Department and organization websites
  • Websites that have mostly static text content
  • External-facing marketing or campaign websites
  • News websites and blogs
  • Event sites and registration forms
  • Contact forms contained in any of the above
