SmileWebFactory module for Drupal, THE solution for web factories, in open source
- 12 Jan 2016
The version 8 of Drupal was the occasion for us to develop a new solution of "websites factory", developed from scratch, and it's now available for everyone in open source !
Smile have developed many web factories, from scratch, using Drupal, Jahia, or Typo3, and we can say that globally, the needs are nearly the same.
With our experience on this topic, the version 8 of Drupal was the occasion for us to develop a new solution, developed from scratch, available for everyone.
Developed by our teams, following the changes of Drupal8 before the stable version, the module have been released in open source to the Drupal community, in open source early this year on drupal.org/project/webfactory. It allows already
- the site of deployment models directly via the back office
- sharing content between the referring site and positioned sites
To understand a bit more, a screencast is available, showing the features.
The module is already available and operational, and is today THE only open source solution on the subject around Drupal. Beyond the use Smile, this module is available to the community. We will present the module to the next Drupal meetup in late January in Paris.
It does not stop there! The solution aims to evolve through our upcoming projects at plants sites, but also through community contributions. Thus we plan already some developments :
- The media sharing
- Sharing users
- The synchronization functionality
