Use Girder Instead of Midas Platform

Prefer Girder, which is a more modern and better supported platform than Midas Platform. Help is available for Girder, documented in the Girder GitHub repo README, and Girder's Read the Docs page.

There is documentation for migrating a Midas Server instance to Girder, along with migration scripts.
