Reading this article this morning reminded me of this:
It seems to me that if we were able to package kind of "canned"
solutions on top of Habari for implementing a working web site, we could
enter the market as a go-to tool in those industries.
Here are a few of places where I think Habari could excel by providing
packaged site solutions:
* Real Estate
* Anything "brochure"-like
It would be fantastic to offer Habari as an alternative, complete tool
to people who would otherwise throw up a single-page brochure site.
What additional features the site could offer as part of such a package
could be discussed.
What functionality would we need to add to have the best ease of use for
people attempting to implement such a solution? How would it be
deployed? Would you select a specific distribution from the Habari home
page, or would you choose a package implementation from a menu during
the installer? How could this work?
Yes! ComicPress would be an ideal implementation of this thought.
I've thought about this before. My idea was to have "installer"
packages; So you could just add your included plugins/themes/install
scripts to a folder (3rdparty would prolly be good for this). Habari's
Installer would look for these install scripts and load/execute as
necessary. But the current installer would have to be "pluggable" for
the installer scripts to run well.
This would make it very easy for people to distribute "pre-packaged"
habari installs. simply add a folder to the vanilla habari install,
and habari does the rest.
that should read, "simply add a folder to the vanilla habari
_distribution_, and habari does the rest."
