Profiles

draft notes about profile manager feature.

Intro

Installation profiles is a feature that existed in Tiki for many years. It worked well to use but creating a profile was not easy enough as you needed to run a shell script (mk_profile.sh). Thus, we only had a handful of profiles, none of which were pro-actively maintained or very useful. In June 2008, Louis-Philippe Huberdeau took up the challenge and you can follow progress on http://profiles.tiki.org The old mk_profile.sh script will be retired.

Export current configuration via GUI(to make it easy to create some)

  • Settings
  • Groups but not users
  • Permissions
  • Default home page
  • Default settings for new forums, image galleries, etc

What about?

  • Custom menus (ML: very good idea because some profiles (ex.: corporate site, events) have consistent base menu
  • Forums, etc. pre-created
  • Help data (like in wiki page)
  • Tracker definitions and some wiki pages to use
  • Workflows?

More ideas

  • dthacker was suggesting a "Profile Snapshot tool"
  • Maybe use TikiTests as a Wizard to setup features? (and have built-in test!)
  • Reset to defaults (ex: after upgrade). So everything should be in lib/pref (vs sql)
  • Content of default home page.
    • split plugin and modules in a wiki page
    • directly tiki articles as home page
    • etc.

  • Potential issues

How to combine 2 profiles? Need to cumulate settings but what if in contradiction?

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
