Can Pages apps be exported/imported?

Recommended Posts

I ask this question because I would like to have similar apps to the IPS4 Resources Bug Tracker and Documentation apps for my site. But, I don't want to have to implement these apps myself in Pages since it will take some time and effort to set them up for my site (learning Pages just to implement these apps would be a low priority to me).

My suggestion is that IPS provide these apps as a free download in the marketplace that can be imported into my Pages installation to give me a starting point to using them on my site. The Pages app comes with an Articles app, but I don't find this app to be very useful to me. Indeed, this site doesn't even use this app unless you consider the IPS4 Documentation app as a customization of the Articles app.

An alternative to making the Bug Tracker and Documentation apps available for download would be to provide detailed tutorials on customizing Pages to create these apps on our own sites as articles in the IPS4 Documentation area. But these tutorials would need to be very detailed (including the actual templates and database setups needed for a production Bug Tracker and Documentation system).

…  took me <30minutes to get a working bug tracker...

​Same for the documentation. It’s not even customized. It looks like this if you just go through the process of actually setting up a Pages database. So there wouldn’t even be a point in offering that as download. It wouldn’t make a difference to set up a database or to import such a database.

Here's a tutorial to emulate the bug tracker. It's written from the beginner's perspective since I didn't have a clue how to do it myself beforehand.
