Since 2005 I support with companies with Joomla websites. When developing websites for customers I always have to do the same things to configure and optimize the website before putting it live. The awesome Live Checklist created by Rene Kreijveld has proven to be a great tool to keep track of everything that you have to do. It's a list of things you have to do to configure and optimize your Joomla website.

However, the list is an offline one that you can use next to your computer. What if such a list would be inside the website you were developing? I decided to develop this extension to have such a checklist tool within the website that is under development. Website developers can add their own checklist or Generate a default Live Checklist.

db8 Site Dev v0.9.3 consists of an Admin Component and Admin Module and is available with the following language packs:
- en-GB (UK English)
- da-DK (Danish)
- de-DE (German)
- fr-FR (French)
- nl-NL (Dutch).

It works as expected.
Ease of use
Seems easy to use
Documentation ok. NB the download link is only for the component. If you want the module you need to get it from github
I used this to: Keeping a record of components and modules installed and settings, modifications and overrides used. Both for a record within the site and also to migrate to other new sites. Simple and effective. Once a site is live you probably don't need the module as all will be checked.
During development this extension is a big help to do all the tasks, also usefulle when building the site with collegue-devs.
Ease of use
Example data is usefull to get familiar with the component. Always the actual state within reach.
db8 developer responds very quick on issues, questions and comments
Doesn't need extensive documentation because use of extension speaks for itself. Example data is usefull too
I used this to: Installed it in my default deployment distro together with other usefull extensions

Great Tool

Ease of use
Very easy to manage.
Have had excellent responses from the developer regarding some suggestions for improvement.
I used this to: This is a fantastic extension that replaces manual lists. There is so much to do when writing a website and this extension provides the ability to keep you on track from start to post launch. Well done.

Nice one
