The DNN Community has received a great gift from the team at Cantarus that will help to add better deployment scenarios to DNN Platform that support enterprise application structures.
What is PolyDeploy
PolyDeploy was initially created around 3 years ago, and provides two major functionalities for users of DNN Platform.
- The ability to upload/install multiple modules at the same time interactively
- The ability to upload/install multiple modules from an external service using an API
For those working with sites that include a lot of customization, or that have a large number of modules this functionality is invaluable. We use PolyDeploy alongside our Azure DevOps processes to automate our deployments to production and non-production environments.
What This Means
Since Cantarus has donated the project to the DNN community, available here, this means that the greater DNN community will take over the management of PolyDeploy in its current form, and we will have the flexibility to do additional things with it in the future.
Our current plans call for continued updates in the coming weeks/months using PolyDeploy as it is now, an extension for DNN. Once things have been updated to meet current demands, efforts will shift to move the technology implementation to something that eventually will be packaged with DNN Platform and distributed as part of the core product.
Now that we have move the project, as with all other DNN Community projects we welcome community contributions of any type. From testing, logging bug reports, or implementing changes we welcome contributions. If you have questions feel free to add to the discussions on GitHub.
