 ==== 2. Development Planning ==== ==== 2. Development Planning ====
 +
 +=== VuFind on Heroku ===
 +
 +Ben's experience at Keystone Library Network inspired the idea of using Heroku to run VuFind with less infrastructure support. Some significant challenges -- like record loading -- but if we can solve these, we potentially make the application accessible to a wider group of people. Goal: one-click instance spin-up (which is what Heroku allows) would make "try before you commit" much easier.
 +
 +Ben spun up a proof-of-concept instance at [[https://vufind-example.herokuapp.com/|https://vufind-example.herokuapp.com/]]. Not everything works yet, but it's a good start.
 +
 +Pull request [[https://github.com/vufind-org/vufind/pull/913|#913]] suggests some very basic changes to make VuFind more Heroku-friendly and provide a baseline for working on new functionality.
 +
 +Suggestion: reach out to Code4lib mailing list to find potential users.
 +
 +Things to do: start composing composer.lock in master.
 +
 +Goal: add support for Heroku without negatively impacting non-Heroku users.
 +
 +Discussion: need for Heroku-specific Apache configuration to meet specific Heroku needs. Can we auto-generate this or do we need to commit two different templates to Git?

 +
 +Significant progress has been made in refactoring to prepare for ZF3 components, and the ZF community has made some helpful new releases. We are still waiting on some movement from the ZF side, however, and right now ongoing work is in progress to upgrade zend-mvc (see pull request [[https://github.com/vufind-org/vufind/pull/900|#900]]). With a large number of changes being made throughout the code, please be especially alert for bugs and strange behavior in the coming weeks.
  
 === Improved Use of Permissions === === Improved Use of Permissions ===
 +
 +There has been some renewed discussion about this on PR [[https://github.com/vufind-org/vufind/pull/608|#608]], though no major code progress yet.
