I'm currently building boilerplates (i.e. sites to Site Transfer as a starting point for new client web sites).
My preference is to load up all extensions in the boilerplate, transfer the site to a client's hosting account, finalize the development and then uninstall the extensions I don't use.
However, as I have several 'boilerplates' and about 60 to 70 extensions (when you add up all components, modules and plugins) - so this is extremely time consuming.
I've been looking for a 'multi-extension installer' - but looking at the JED (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/core-enhancements/installers), the available multi-installers only go up to J! 2.5.
In the Joomla! Docs - there is an article on creating packages.
This method allows for combining multiple extensions in one zip for install, but has the drawback of "Combining them in a package will let the user install and uninstall both extensions in one go."
I'd like to install multiple extensions in 'one-go' - but have the ability to uninstall extensions without having to uninstall the entire package.
1) Is a 'multi-installer' for J!3 available?
2) Is there a way to install multiple extensions in one shot for J!3?
This would be a huge time saver.
