On Thursday I started a discussion about a Composer GUI for TYPO3 which had a great impact on Twitter. With this topic I want to move the discussion here.
What’s it about?
It’s about a concept and a development for a tool which let people without CLI access, knowledge or will to install a TYPO3 in composer mode. As composer is getting more and more important for TYPO3, we should lower the barrier for people without CLI access (or other reasons).
TYPO3 Backend or Standalone?
First my focus lied on a TYPO3 Backend Module to handle the composer installation, later the idea of a Standalone module came up to be able to install and adapt different PHP projects with composer packages.
What do we talk about now?
- Shall we focus on a TYPO3 backend module?
- Is a Standalone better for handling installations and maybe something big (and Open Source) for the whole PHP driven community (Symfony, Drupal, etc.)
- Are there still solutions for this?
- Who should and wants to be part of this Initiative?
- Twitter discussion start: https://twitter.com/spooner_web/status/1159429509965389824
- Initiative template: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1JEdJnWoRU9Pvp3psy49FA_pKIzySWPESzwKpgRoJjJQ/edit#heading=h.fwb70edm7stw
- I’d like to go for a Standalone tool for the whole PHP community
- Let’s get good people for concepting, UX, design and programming together
- Talk with other communities for contributing and input
- Do it Open Source
