DrupalCon wrap up


Hello everyone,

Great podcast!

I figured I'd ask Shrop what program he used on the iPad to make a Drupal site. I've seen several iPad Apps for Terminal/SSH stuff. Just wanted advice from the G&G pros.


I think it's called Safari


Sorry if I didn't make it clear, but all Shrop used to make a new site from his iPad was a browser. Aegir did all the actual work. That's what was so amazing about it.

FWIW, I have iSSH on my iPod Touch, and I think I heard about that one from Shrop. It's pretty decent so far, but I haven't really used it for much, since the screen is so small.


Shane, Yeah. I was demoing


Yeah. I was demoing Aegir to deploy sites and do site maintenance using the iPad as the tool. It was super easy.

This is the service I was using. http://omega8.cc/ Great folks and Aegir open source contributors!

Deploying Drupal sites with Aegir and iPad


Hey Micah and Shrop,

Oops.. I listened to the podcast again. For whatever reasons, I thought Shrop used drush through an iPad SSH program. I guess my mind went blank at the thought of deploying sites with an iPad. Cool.

Thanks for the podcast! Gotta listen to the new one now.
