project flow & tracker
You've heard about the advantages of Panels Everywhere. Now its time to actually get it going. A drush makefile, a few configuration steps, and we should have a starter site up and going and never have to look back on ugly, deficient and crippled admin/build/block.
In a recent Buenos Aires Drupal Dojo online virtual lab, we did just that, so I shall lay out a series of simple steps here on the basis of what we learned together that night.
Let's summarize the advantages of Panels Everywhere, take the steps to get it going, and think about next steps.

So today finally Project Flow & Tracker meets Open Atrium, and does so in style. My friends at Development Seed just told me about the new availability of the feature server code (w00t! out just a couple of days right here: http://code.developmentseed.org/featureserver/dashboard), not to mention a spanking new theme, singular,
"a minimal theme that can be rebranded quickly and simply using background images a la Twitter. The theme comes with several prepackaged backgrounds and site administrators are encouraged to upload their own."
also out just a couple of days, and which can be found at http://code.developmentseed.org/singular/dashboard . Singular and depends on the base theme Tao: http://code.developmentseed.org/singular/dashboard (also fresh meat!).
So we will be diving right in. Here are the steps we will be taking, so hang on to your mice, it's going to be a fun ride:
- First steps with Open Atrium itself (OK, what is it?)
- First login as admin
- Creating a group
- Creating a project and some project docs
- Inviting some more team members
- Working together
- Our bare bones "Feature Machine" morphs into the stylishly themed and branded AWebFactory Feature Server!
- Feature Server
- We stick our feature onto our Feature Server
- Sticking our feature on the feature server
Time to commit our work to bzr!
- Importing Project Flow & Tracker as a feature into our Open Atrium based PFT site
- First steps for integration of PFT feature into Open Atrium
- Bringing back the full PFT feature set.
- Making PFT usable
- Using PFT to develop PFT

Today we witness the birth of PFT "Paris" as a feature, that is, based on the Open Atrium compatible features family of modules which promise plug and play feature components for Drupal. It should also serve as a useful tutorial on how to get started with features (and a smidgeon of drush and bzr too!). And you can download the whole shebang and enjoy Project Flow & Tracker lite. What we'll do:
