Presto! Reaches 1000 downloads milestone

Sitback’s home-grown Drupal distribution sees early success


We’re incredibly excited to announce that our custom Drupal distribution, called Presto!, has recently smashed through the 1000 downloads mark: proving that there is a real need for a way to get up and running with Drupal quickly.

What is Presto!?

Here at Sitback, we love Drupal; an open source Content Management System that powers many of the websites that we build for our clients. Out of the box, however, Drupal is very much a blank slate. Indeed, this is one of Drupal’s most flexible features, but depending on what you want to do with the platform, the amount of customisation can vary from a little, to a heck of a lot.

So, to help our team of Drupal Developers hit the ground running with each new project, we built Presto!– a custom Drupal distribution based on the core Drupal 8 CMS, that also contains a select number of contributed modules, including Drupal Commerce as an installation option (currently the only Drupal 8 distribution to work with the popular ecommerce module), a custom theme designed to play nice with our pre-configured content, and a number of sane content editing defaults. The result is a magical way to kick start Drupal Development that we are proud to release back to the Drupal community – our way of saying thank you to the countless hours given by other developers across the world to make the open source Drupal platform such a great tool to build websites with.

The future of Presto!

Presto! Is still very much in its infancy; version 1.0 only landed in mid-July, but already we are seeing reductions in development time of at least 20%, and we have a roadmap stuffed full of new features which will help improve these time savings even further. So, stay tuned for more announcements soon – we have some really exciting things planned and we can’t wait to see what others are able to create (and how much time they are able to save) using Presto!
