Just curious: Are you (at some point) going to propose a better way to install extensions into platform applications? Because of I think that even platform applications could benefit from easy updates and possibility to extend them by extensions.


mbabker commented Oct 19, 2012

The plan is to create a better installer library. The current code is very closely tied in with the CMS, error prone, and because of how it's written, hard to test or troubleshoot. A cleaner package will hopefully solve a lot of these problems. I guess I'm kinda curious if anyone's started working on it yet.

Yes, I'm aware of the plans, but I'm curious as well. I'm also interested if there's a plan to get the new installer class into the platform.

There is a plan, I don't think anyone has any code yet.
