    GIF Screencast:

    Many thanks for posting the gif. The install process looks great. I did not see any step within the gif showing any setup for the core path (mainly to put it above the public_html directory)

        If you go to the demo that is in the Context & Connectors section

            I guess there will be an option within that section to nominate where the core will be installed and named. The path that you type will be to the directory to where each section will be installed, so you can name it whatever you like (one of my favourite MODX security features which puts, in my mind MODX far a head of any other CMS).

            Really love this installer. Well done MODX team.

              It is still very much a work in progress. I made a screencast that goes over the design and goals showing it working as intended

              Hoping to push out a preview that is more functional and using the new REST API for the package "wizard" soon.

              • The Continue buttons should work even when window.scrollTo breaks now. And the new REST API is hooked up! If you open the developer tools you should see the requests to the API being made. And if you want to hack away and work with the API to customize the package presets, desires, and extras being presented during startup you can do that here:

                • Very nice! smiley

                  Quick suggestion -- on the button at the end, change:

                  Login to MODX


                  to something like:

                  Log in to your MODX Manager


                  The first could be misunderstood as logging in to modx.com. Also, (and this is mostly personal preference), I like Login as an adjective ("Login credentials"), but log in when it's a verb.

                    What about just "Login to your Dashboard" or "Login to your MODX Dashboard"?

                    I'm hoping 4.x (all new Manager) will feature a user friendly home screen aka "dashboard" they'd first be taken to.

                    • I like "Login to your MODX Dashboard," although it ties us to having a dashboard come up, and it could lead new users to think that the entire Manager is the dashboard (which it sort of is in WordPress). If so, it might be a barrier to understanding the concept of multiple dashboards.
