New Site dedicated to ImpressCMS 2 started

I started a new site dedicated to ImpressCMS 2.0, it's called planetimpress.org.

You will find tips, tricks, downloads and hacks there. The whole page is developed using brackets and Github -> planetimpress.org repository on github. You will be able to check out planetimpress.org as a cloneable resource with all the info and data you find when you visit http://www.planetimpress.org. It will be some kind of demo site as well and you will be able to use the site as a basis for your own projects with many modules and themes allready installed and working, plus a help system(help user which will see blocks with help for using the site and the modules).

I only just begun.
The site planetimpress.org is also meant for documentation of it's own development.

Check back and all the best!

Let's try to make this like a site replicator by only ftping files to any given environment.

Maybe even a virtual machine which is deployable in any shared hosting or vps environment itself by ftp where the user sets only an broadcasting ip from withing its own range.

Thoughts of the future.:

A thing that eats content and has an inerface to structure and add any given content, all the directory, all its' files, and presenting it.
The automatic representation of this is istelf structurable thanks to the system.
Basic space of 150mb may be required and it could be something that resides in opt and ads some layer of "computer".
It parses and eats stuff and lays a layer of information over it, any information it can get(maybe from its decentralised heads.)
On auto this may be wormcomputing, recreating basic infrastructure to be for itself and you.
Besides on that and while stored on your local harddisc(can be a vps), you can structure and edit it all, from text file editing to wysig and wym.
Preferably including drag and drop.

Many blocks(any content* blocks thanks due to areas (fed with modules features) showing up, so there is some admin work, preferably in groups, like it is with ICMS.

The Frontpage of ICMS needs get "replacable" by drag and drop, admin can do that with block positions as well as blocks aka the dynamic content as well. Block positions as well as the corresponding block content are dynamic.

Also the system need to understand itself slight different.
There are different mental models regarding the administration as well as the participation with a CMS. On the one hand, ICMS will structure and present content on auto, on the other hand, it makes it all curatable/managable on per block and per content and user basis. Thats ImpressCMS for me, a System which is useful in terms of infrastructure for an information age.

It's some Arduino wormengine that opens its needed connections and space and then serves and syncs for you.
This can be docker but it can be your own device as well.

Re: New Site dedicated to ImpressCMS 2 started

Interesting idea!

If you plan to use virtual machine, I think it would be a good idea somehow to reuse vagrant configuration ->
https://github.com/ImpressCMS/impresscms-vagrant-template (once you have cloned you must rename config.virtualbox-example.json to config.json and maybe edit it). In that case we could use same environment both for production and development.

I have planned that drag and drop feature to do by myself. However I think I would need first to do other some stuff :/ But from other side if you'll do that could save some time for me :)

Re: New Site dedicated to ImpressCMS 2 started

really encouraging.

well let's try design this from ground up with whats there allready.
also its internal structure, we have an explorer with some features of dolphin from kde here for example. i think of a Media directory structure that keeps all this generated and collected stuff. key in this is a "fetcher" that keeps the data until its sorted into either the Pictures, Documents, the Fetcher, Music, Software or Videos directory.

At the moment I try to design a small network with backup and mediathek/archive/knowledgebase server. I think such a system for all the media is needed, and the /position/block/group/user model of ImpressCMS to display content is just an awesome idea. It can be your complete desktop with some streaming and presentation layer, in this case ICMS with some maybe XMPP module. all interconnected and sharable, easily to get hands on, the development of documentation in a matter of git is the same as the writing and curating of code.
we as maintainer set it up and sort it out, TYGIA ^^, "the user gets it all", where you are one of it as well. Something bootable from a stick that can index and present some external/remote "any data storage".

I will look and see if i maybe find some distro builder.
the configured git is ready to host/serve repositories on a vhost basis, that would be a nice goal. i will look into the xoops server2go as well a bit.

There can be done a lot and i only start to get used to git and the Brackets editor.
