Adding to Marketplace

I think I might have read some discussion on the forum about the marketplace (though, can’t seem to find it now). Is the marketplace that is accessible a Reclaim instance of the marketplace, or something controlled by Jelastic. If it’s a Reclaim instance (which I’m guessing it is given that Jelastic probably has zero interest in Voyant), is there going to be a process by which users might request or submit additions?

The marketplace holds both application installers that are built by Jelastic as well as installers built and managed by Reclaim Hosting. All the new packages announced so far in https://community.reclaimhosting.com/c/cloud/cloud-announcements/38 are by us and we even include the manifests as separate repos in our Github org Reclaim Hosting · GitHub. Users have the ability to write their own scripts using the Import feature (which allows them to also distribute their own packages easily). More info on the scripting language is available at https://docs.cloudscripting.com/. We are absolutely open to requests and submissions. I would say the best method for that right now would be a forum thread in the Cloud group.

I was surprised by how simple (relatively speaking) the jsp files look.

I agree, of course you can go as complex as you want but for many installs it’s not too bad at all. Jelastic also publishes all of theirs at Jelastic JPS Collection · GitHub so you can take something currently in the Marketplace and work backwards to understand how they have scripted the install. Package Development thread has some discussion around it as well which includes information on creating URLs that will auto-deploy a package even if we haven’t added it to Marketplace (similar to the style of “Deploy on Heroku” type buttons)

I’d love to try out Grav (https://getgrav.org/) on Reclaim Cloud, any plans to provide that as an application or suggestions on how I might be able to try it myself? Thanks very much!

Absolutely, I was giving preference to apps people can’t already run in shared hosting but Grav should be a simple one to build an installer for. I’ll be working on that and can also write up some documentation. I recommend if you want to go for a manual install you’d be creating a PHP environment of course and then check out Using the Deployment Manager in Reclaim Cloud to learn more about deploying code to an environment.

Thank you Tim, that would be awesome to see! I will be tweeting about Reclaim Cloud in just a moment too, I’ve got a test RocketChat instance running on a Canadian server🎉
