One of the biggest challenges for us in 2018 was dealing with early-stage configuration woes. UNA is a universal framework, which often makes it difficult for webmasters to put together an operational website. The resolution for 2019 is to make it easy to deploy a turnkey UNA-powered site.
To achieve that, we are creating a number of industry-specific solutions, designed for social networks, business networks, learning, personal blogging, dating, local communities, etc. Each solution will be available for exact cloning during site launch at UNA-cloud. The idea is to provide it as a starting point for any webmaster to immediately have a conventional setup and to be able to customise from that point.
The very first solution is modelled a generic social network, like Facebook and VK. The combination of apps, settings, template and language keys is fine-tuned and ready to use. A few sample profiles, content items and contexts pre-created to give a good feel of how everything works. This solution will be called Dolphin and will evolve as a target setup for migrations from Dolphin 7.
The release is planned for mid-January. For now, a few screens...
Have a Happy New Year everyone! I have a feeling it's going to be a good one. 😉
