This document contains information on how to customize the Nucleus install script. It can be customized in two ways:
Open up the
install.php script and locate the following piece of code:
// array with names of plugins to install. Plugin files must be present in the nucleus/plugin/ // directory. // // example: // array('NP_TrackBack', 'NP_MemberGoodies') $aConfPlugsToInstall = array(); // array with skins to install. skins must be present under the skins/ directory with // a subdirectory having the same name that contains a skinbackup.xml file // // example: // array('base','rsd') $aConfSkinsToImport = array();
This code is all you need to change: list the names of the plugins and skins you want to auto-install in the arrays.
Next to changing the configuration, you'll need to add the files to the zipfile distribution.
For plugins, place the files in the
nucleus/plugins/ directory. Just as when you would install a plugin manually.
For skins, place them as directories under
skins/, just as you would do when importing a skin manually. Don't forget to put the
skinimport.xml file in there.
Don't forget to test your customized install script before distributing it.
