How to install a customized ProcessWire instance in less than a minute :) 


All you need is to copy one file to your server, then upload a kickstartfile like this:

return [
  'pwurl' => 'https://github.com/processwire/processwire/archive/dev.zip',
  'dbName' => 'kick',
  'dbUser' => 'kick',
  'dbPass' => 'Kix8s08$',

and if you want to customize your instance after installation you can create recipe files like this:

$this->installModule('TracyDebugger', 'https://github.com/adrianbj/TracyDebugger/archive/master.zip');
$this->installModule('AdminOnSteroids', 'https://github.com/rolandtoth/AdminOnSteroids/archive/master.zip');


it needs a lot more cleanup and testing but any thoughts and ideas are welcome until i can finish it...

BTW: it's not only about saving time - this could also be very helpful to share whole instances for debugging.

Couldn't a module like this would be a better solution for "sharing"?

hm.. good point. maybe. maybe not. with my tool one could change the pw version easily for example. exporting and importing data would need some scripting though. i guess duplicator would be a better option in most cases. maybe we can combine the tools :)

I can upload Duplicator - as is - to Github at the end of the day if you would like to compare (maybe @bernhard grabbed a copy). I use the module every day so it should work for everyone at least with decents servers. stay tuned.

i haven't tried it yet. i'll try it out as soon as possible and see how you did it and if something might be worthful to combine.
