Preview: ProcessWire Kickstart

Recommended Posts

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

kickstart.thumb.gif.9a6ee0be4ddf58b577226f8eeec1e2d9.gif

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

<?php
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:

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

$this->installModule('Repeater');

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"?

@flydev has not yet released it so it's hard to compare two sneak-peek projects but still...

Nice tool @bernhard!

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.

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 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.

@bernhard. I'll move this topic to module development since the other thread will be the support forum for this module. 

If you wish, we can lock this topic so that all enquiries/comments etc, are directed to the modules main support forum
