The web interface is targeted towards people creating Fedora Spins and Remixes. It will use the existing tools like livecd-creator and pungi to create the actual images. Initial target is just live images. It will be a 100% free and open source web application.
Name of the application
August 16, 2009: Rahul Sundaram suggested it. Shreyank Gupta is implementing it as a Django application.
We need help with someone from the design team to draw mockups
* Imported Comps into a mysql database. * Ruby on Rails not a suitable framework, for unavalablity of a kickstart parser written in ruby.
* Distribution name * Live or Install image. Initially support will be only added for Live image * Select template (kickstart files from spin-kickstart package) * Select groups (inherited from comps) and individual packages * Default language, other languages to include * Default wallpaper * Hostname * Default username * root password, user password * home directory content * Custom Packages * Image type: ISO, virt image, raw disk
For the first release:
1 name of image - will be used as the name of the kickstart file, filesystem label and image name 2 select template - based on kickstart files from spin-kickstart package 3 select package groups, individual packages - derived from comps and with the ability to search as well 4 language, timezone - Default is English and US - E 5 generate image with progress bar 6 download image and kickstart file
