Joomlapolis Incubator

The Joomlapolis Incubator is a forge area used by CB Team members to share their work in progress projects and Community Builder experiments with community members. At this time is offered as yet another benefit to CB Documentation subscribers however in the near future (new site under construction) it will be offered only to premium members (to be announced).

The CB Team is always working on proof-of-concept (POC) projects and experiments that are pretty cool ideas but are not released to the general population for various reasons. Some of the projects may never be released as stable CB Team items, others need extra work and yet others perhaps might be of limited use to most of us. With the Incubator concept community members will be able to gain access to all these great ideas and help shape the future of the concept.

This is also an excellent way to learn how to code your own CB plugin applications. Studying these projects will help you learn how to take advantage of the powerful CB API to fulfill your use case needs.

All Joomlapolis Incubator projects can be accesses (currently you need to be a CB Documentation subscriber) by clicking here. You can then navigate to any individual project area by clicking on one of the links in the Subprojects list or by clicking on the top right drop-down navigation field (initially containing the value: Incubator). Once you visit an individual Incubator project area you can see its releases in the Files tab and relevant discussions in the Forum tab.
