I'm looking at building a Web Application on the Drupal framework. Does anyone know of an existing drupal profile installation that has this viewpoint?
For example, I've been building features for Open Atrium and I'm familiar with some of the concepts and modules this contains. However, Open Atrium does not really satisfy the concept of clients having a profile and creating projects with subscriptions.
So in essence, I'm looking for a package similar to Open Atrium, but satisfies a web application development. Think of it more as building web tools like Basecamp or Freebooks, but using a base platform to get there.
Creating your own install profile doesn't need to be a big project in itself, especially for Drupal 7, that has simplified making install profiles. Features also helps a lot, making it easy to save settings, content types, views etc in a module.
All you really need to do in the install profile is to
I suggest that you build your own install profile that fits your needs, instead of trying to find one. You could start out with how it's done in Open Atrium, and just edit it to fit your needs.
In my opinion, building web apps with drupal is not really a good idea, but it depends upon the size of the application that you will be seeing in the end.
If you can clarify what kind of web application we might be talking about then I can give a more suitable answer.
