PIMPRINT CONSISTS OF THREE COMPONENTS
The PimPrint CoreBundle is open-source and therefore not subject to licensing. It provides controllers and base classes for communicating with the PimPrint plugin.
The PimPrint plugin is a plugin that allows you to create print publications directly out of Pimcore. The plugin is subject to a license.
The definition of InDesin templates is a matter of boundless creativity. Ath this point, there are no limits to the variety of templates.
OUR CONCEPT OF OPEN-SOURCE DEVELOPMENT
The dominant software model for innovation in the new digital economy, where ideas take shape in collaboration with companies, individuals, and the community, is the open-source approach. This is what makes open-source such a powerful key component of all modern enterprise software architectures. In the case of open-source software, the source code of the software is publicly available. This allows a high degree of flexibility for individual adaptations. As a Pimcore Gold Partner we always strive to take advantage of this flexibility and to contribute to the innovative development of the Pimcore ecosystem. For this reason and because we are completely convinced of the open source approach, our CoreBundle is also open source.
mds.PimPrint is an InDesign plugin that creates a direct connection between Pimcore and the print-ready document. With just one click, text boxes, tables, and other flexibile InDesign elements are created from their contents – page by page for your entire print medium.
HOW CAN OUR SOLUTION BE USED?
As in all our solutions, the customer is the focus of our considerations. From our experience we know that every customer has different requirements. To ensure the desired flexibility, our solution can be used in three ways.
EXPERIENCE GITHUB AND DISCOVER OUR PIMPRINT DOCUMENTATION
Nowadays, there are often several, sometimes even hundreds or thousands of developers working on a software project. Each of them devotes himself to a different part of the program, and their work results have to be brought together somewhere. Of course, each developer could send his changes and new features to a central person, who would then take care of updating the received code. But that's exactly what a version control like Git can do. mds also has a repository at Github, which we strongly recommend to the "code enthusiasts" among you.
Furthermore, we would like to draw the attention of the tech-interested people among you to some documentations. One is the API documentation of the PimPrint CoreBundle. The other two are the documentation of the DemoBundle and the documentation of the full version of the PimPrint bundle.
