The Deploy module is designed to allow users to easily stage and preview content for a Drupal site. Deploy automatically manages dependencies between entities (like node references). It is designed to have a rich API which can be easily extended to be used in a variety of content staging situations.
Deploy has been re-designed for Drupal 8 and is based on the Multiversion and Replication modules. This creates a very flexible and efficient content staging framework for Drupal 8! See the below presentations for more details:
The Drupal 7 version is a complete rewrite providing a flexible API.
Additional recommended modules:
- Deploy Add-on - containing common implementations for many use cases
There are a few blockers for a stable D6 release. See the issue tag beta blocker and .
Deploy for Drupal 6 makes extensive use of the Services 6.x-2.x module for communicating with remote sites. (As of 07/18/2011, Services 6.x-3.x is incompatible, and there are no plans to make it so.)
