FusionForge Virtual released
We are releasing today FusionForge Virtual, it extends the features of FusionForge to display some of the projects in “different” forges with different URL, web domains and layout. Actually one forge instance can offer several views sharing the same database, that’s why we called them virtual forges.
Repositories like OSOR or Morfeo want to attract people and entities to come to their platform and some of the entities want to have their own layout, url and logos next to the projects. Due to the fact that all the data is stored in the same database is not a big deal to create different views of the same projects, that’s why we developed the virtual forges support. A couple of years ago we did something very similar for the Morfeo community and CENATIC with the platform based on Gforge and during the last months we polished up the code to create a newer version based on FusionForge 5.0.1
There is a demo site available at http://forge.ffvirtual5.libresoft.es/, there you’ll see three virtual forges that offer different views with subsets of projects with a customized layout and URL.
