Spinning up a hub just got easier. Autohub is a script that streamlines the setup of a HUBzero development instance, changing a complex process into a few quick and easy steps.
After running the script, you will be running a fully functional hub that offers the standard CMS features and virtualized Workspaces and, optionally, Solr search. This hub will allow you to safely experiment with a wide range of features and develop custom code. Autohub also lays the groundwork for remote PHP debugging, making it much easier to troubleshoot problems and fix software bugs.
The hub instance that Autohub provides runs in a virtual machine (VM) on your computer and requires some free software to get started (VirtualBox and Vagrant). This effort was lead by Jeff Kayser, a HUBzero Software Architect. See the Autohub README for more information.
