Vote for ProcessWire to be packaged by BitNami

Recommended Posts

Just saw (via Gertrud Schrenk) that BitNami (Company that packages popular open source apps into easy to install images in various formats, including AWS cloud images) is having a contest for which apps to include next as a package, where you can vote for ProcessWire.

To quote the site:

 Which application should we package next? You get to decide! Since the beginning of the year, we have been running a contest every month. The winning app gets added to the Bitnami Application Library, providing easy to use installers, virtual machines and cloud images.

Please, all go and vote for PW at: bitnami.com/contest !  :)

Cheers

I voted already for two rounds but no chance.

Ah, I thought it was one single contest, defining the order in which they will implement these later ...

Doing multiple contests must indeed make folks give up on this :/

You have to admire their social networking strategy. I think there are a lot of folks like me that have never heard of them, and these contests make their brand known. We derive the same benefit... it helps us whether we "win" the contest or not, as seeing ProcessWire on the first page may help get it on the radar of other visitors that don't already know about it.

Indeed :)

And now, processwire is already at 6th place, and should be able to get to at least 3rd place with just a dozen more votes, so I think doing a little concerted sharing around this might well be worth it. (Better to do it all one time and win the contest, than spread it out and never win :) )

(Bitnami is quite well known among Amazon AWS cloud users, btw, being one of the most active AWS image producers)

BitNami comes bundled with XAMPP. You have to actively deselect it on installation if you don't want it. Would be good for awareness if PW could make it in ...

And since XAMPP is used by developers often, not a bad place to be listed.

The PW "logo" on the contest page makes me realize how badly PW needs an actual logo.

If a logo will be created, we have to think about the aspect ratio.

Most logo's are scaled down depending on their width, portrait or 'square' logo's will do better in most cases.

@fmgujju: Thanks for the kind words :) It could use some refinement by a real graphic designer though ...

... and, just to get back to the topic for a moment (no pun intended, logo discussion is interesting :) ), PW is making quite some progress on the bitnami contest :) ... could use a few more votes and sharing though, to get past the no 1 and 2! :)

Just done another tweet to my handful of followers:

https://twitter.com/Joss_Sanglier/status/423744548498464769

Cool. Recommended to include the link as well! :)

I also realized yesterday that if linking to the processwire page (http://bitnami.com/product/processwire), the tweet is sometimes counted as a vote (which they indeed also say), while of course the main contest link (http://bitnami.com/contest) is not.

Made the mistake to only link the contest page, a few times.

Oh, there are plenty.

Finding them awake, sitting upright and facing front is another matter, however.

      Hi, 
      Could anyone advise me on the following system requirements, which I am missing for ProcessWire installation:
      DO (pdo_mysql) is required (for MySQL database)
      Fail: GD 2.0 or newer  Fail: JSON support ZipArchive support was not found. This is recommended, but not required to complete installation.

      During the install process I can never get to Step 4 for setting up an admin account.
      It creates the database and in the screen it shows it installed the database and imported the SQL
      and under that it shows "Profile Import" but nothing else.
      I have the same result with master & dev branch.
      I looked in the database and do not see a user table of any kind, unless it has some other name than "users"

      Hi everyone,
      I can't get my head around this, so maybe someone can help: I want to know how install the dev branch of processwire with composer.
      I use laragon and the "quick create" function and there you can run composer like this: "composer create-project processwire/processwire %s". OK, this is working, so I will get the master branch from it, but how about dev? I found some examples for laravel on this question, but no luck with it. Here some examples:
      composer create-project processwire/processwire %s --prefer-dist --stability=dev composer create-project processwire/processwire:dev %s composer create-project processwire/processwire:dev %s --stability=dev composer create-project processwire/processwire:dev %s --prefer-dist --stability=dev composer create-project processwire/processwire:dev-master %s --prefer-dist --stability=dev composer create-project processwire/processwire:dev-branch %s --prefer-dist --stability=dev composer create-project processwire/processwire:@dev %s --prefer-dist --stability=dev and so on... Maybe someone got this already and would like to share?

      Hi,
      I'm a System Administrator responsible for DevOps in our Company. We're trying PW in a single client project atm and experience some glitches with DevOps-/Workflow.
      We have a small team of developers that need to work with the same code base. They all need to be able to develop locally and deploy to a preview/staging environment.
      Our Toolstack contains git for versioning, chef/vagrant or docker for local development/testing and Jenkins for building assets and automatic deployment to the staging-site.
      There's several challenges / glitches in this process that makes me think that ProcessWire hadn't been developed for a use case like ours and is much more intended to be used by single developers that work right on the production system.
      Can you advise me on a suitable workflow?

      There's problems with the assets/files dir that must be shared between the staging website and local environments of our developers.
      We're right now working with symlinks on the staging system that helps to preserve the direcory when deploying from the master branch. but now we tend to use nfs-shares so devs can collaborate with a shared directory.

      The local docker containers can use the same target (the nfs) from inside the containers. But is that the way it needs to be done? Really?
      There's so much work that needs to be done to fit ProcessWire in a DevOps Workflow that we tend to decide to switch to another CMS.
       
      Any suggestions or hints that i might have missed. Am I wrong or is PW really not meant to be used this way. I

      Hello. I'm not new to Processwire (I've been using it on a Mac environment for multiple site builds), but I am new to installing it on a Windows environment. I have unsuccessfully installed Processwire 3.0.62 both via downloaded zip file and GitHub on my Windows machine. The Site Installation Profile and Compatibility Checks are successful, and I am able to get past the MySql Database screen. However, this is where the installation process stops (step 3). The Test Database and Save Configuration screen says my database connection was successful and the configuration was saved to ./site/config.php and that's it, but I know from my ProcessWire experience I should also see fields for setting up the admin login etc. on this screen. I can't go any further after this. I've redone this process multiple times. I am running XAMPP, if that helps. Any clue what could be stopping the installation process?
