write a lightweight deepamehta distribution-template

Reported by: Malte Owned by: Malte
Priority: Major Milestone:
Component: 3rd Party Plugins Version: 4.1
Keywords: Cc: dgf
Complexity: 5 Area:


A "lightweight" deepamehta installation should meet the needs of possible deepamehta users who just want to explore and experiment with deepamehtas unique user interface, nothing else.

Therefore such a distro should ship, work and be:

  • without the type-builder plugin
  • without making a "login" prompt necessary on first contact to write stuff

Ideally there could be much more, to be shipped with such.

Danny, could you point me to a place where I can see how I can write such a template? I would be very interested in learning how to write own distribution templates since therewith you can free users of the need to manually install any plugins after dm-installation, if i see that right.

Would be great if you could shortly point me out some key things about your freshest devlopment in this area. Thanks a lot!

  • restrict the available types in the "Search"-Menu, e.g. to those available in "Create"-Menu

Hi Malte,

I am very pleased about resonates to the individualized set of plugins and configuration

it would be nice to see more customized distributions

at the moment there are two in the wild

basicly you need a bundled feature.xml that describes all dependencies, and a distribution module to preconfigure the logging, system and other specific configurations

Thanks dagnu for your support, this sounds very nice and I want to give it a try soon!

I just filed #512 as a support request.

As the DM4 BOX Renderer is now part of the standard distro there is an additional need to get this started.

Should we close this ticket?

In comment:2 dgf shows how you could build your own Karaf-based distro.
Use dm4-features as a start (see #711).

Concrete DM functionality should be addressed in dedicated tickets.
