[OSGeo-Discuss] easiest setup on Windows

hello OSGeo,

I am helping some friends migrate their work to a real GIS (from a hodgepodge of AutoCad and MS-Excel spreadsheets). Unfortunately, for me, they use Windows (the last time I used Windows was 1997). I will try and convince them to start using some kind of Linux, at least for their geospatial needs, but assuming I can’t, what is the easiest way to get them started with web mapping?

Fwiw, I am installing PostGIS for them and outfitting them with QGIS. So, the desktop/datastore part is covered. But I don’t have time to build a full fledged Leaflet app. Is there something I can install on a Windows machine that will read data from PostGIS and serve it on the web, and allow some level of customization of the interface?

(Sadly, I don’t even know what version of Windows they are using, but I recall it had a lot of bouncy windows so it must be one of the newer versions.)

Many thanks in advance,
