This section is a grab bag of topics, how-tos, links, etc. for developers who want to work with LWC under the hood. We’ll be expanding it as our developers get more engaged with this documentation; if there’s something you’d like to see here, hit us up.
The LiveWhale developer site:
The LiveWhale Developers Forum (a private Basecamp project; contact us to be added to the list):
White Whale on Github (a private repo; let us know and we can give you read access)
LWDC: the LiveWhale Developers Conference
Our annual conference is primarily for LiveWhale CMS developers, but if we’re holding it near you, there’s probably something of interest for you as well!)

Sample code and contributed plugins
These are a few custom projects that our developers (in-house and at schools around the world) have created.
Add Suggest to Main Calendar
The “suggest to group” box is really useful, but there are so many groups on most of your installs— and often there’s a single group that gets most of the suggestions (usually the homepage). This module is called suggest_to, and it adds an extra checkbox above the group select box. It’s a shortcut to suggest to the specific group of your choice.
