NetRiver is officially using Joomla as a CMS solution. Because of this I’m working on a way to automate installation and templating from our development team. Currently it takes me about 3 hours of modification to successfully template a Joomla install.
I’m working on a way to automate most of the process and basically get those 3 hours of my time back to put towards other things.
So far I’ve made a base SVN trunk for our Joomla installs. The trunk has a default basic template and a set of our “supported” modules. We currently have a similar setup for our Chambergate product and I’m going to be maintaining our joomla base install. Hopefully the way I’m doing it will make it easier to roll out mass updates for people and also allow us to document a set of static features.
