System administrators have long known you can do much more and do it more quickly with a little typing at a command line than you ever could by pointing and clicking. However, for non-sysadmins, command lines can be intimidating. Prompt aims to bring the efficiency and power of the command line to DNN -- but make it easy to learn and use for non-sysadmins with great documentation, a simple, consistent syntax, and a dash of HTML to make the terminal experience pretty and easy to use.
All the basic functionality a DNN Admin needs are readily available in Prompt. You can create new users, search for and edit existing users, add roles, reset their password and delete them. Pages? We've got that covered. Create, edit, move, and delete them. You can even navigate to pages from within prompt. You can perform standard operations on security roles, scheduled tasks, and modules. You can install new extensions, clear the log, clear the cache, and restart the application.
Need More? Prompt is easily extensible. Create your own commands to do whatever you need. Prompt handles the UI so you can focus on the functionality. Module developers can provide Prompt extensions to enable interaction with and management of their modules. IT departments can write extensions to trigger reports or backend processes. Individual admins can write extensions to automate regular tasks. New open source and commercial extensions can be written to integrate with virtually any 3rd party API. The possibilities are practically limitless.
I started developing Prompt as a commercial module but quickly realized DNN needed a tool like this and that Prompt could open up entirely new avenues for development and productivity. Plus, it adds a unique powerful feature for DNN that other platforms lack. I’m excited that DNN Corp shares this vision and has decided to incorporate Prompt into the Core.
