In order to simplify the installation procedure, we should include some predefined profiles which determine the extensions that will be installed. This is useful because most users don't take the time to individually select or deselect each extension.

Some profile examples:

  • Blog
  • Community
  • Ecommerce
  • Gaming

not only profiles - aslo custom configs and extrascriprs

It is amazing how the same ideas appear in the minds of all the team members independently!


trustmaster commented Sep 3, 2012

I'd merge Community and Gaming and focus on 3 profiles.


jasperjorna commented Sep 4, 2012

I agree, there isn't really anything in the list that makes a seperate Gaming profile worth it.

As an addition there may be some kind a «developer» profile (or simply addition «dev» package).
With «dummy» theme and «dummy» plugin.

Dummy theme is theme files pack with basic markup only and no styles (may be except «reset.css»).
Dummy plugin is simple plugin files templates with no functionality (may be just a «Hello world» code). Files for «standalone», «ajax», «tools», «setup», «langfiles» must be included.

It's simplify the process for beginner developers.

Installation problem

Fatal error : SQL error : Table 'cotonti.sed_config' doesn't exist

Please help

@esclkm added support for custom install scripts in 52887c4. We need some docs or usage examples.
