The Web Platform Installer v4 (WebPI) command line tool is now available as a separate download! We've added a bunch of new features and fix several issues, and we'd really like you to take it out for a test drive!
For those of you who aren't familiar with WebPI, it's a great little tool for deploying your favorite open-source web applications (from the Web App Gallery) and all the necessary platform components required to get you up and running quickly and seamlessly. Over the years, we've heard a lot of feedback from the community about fully supporting a command line version of the tool - users want to script installs and automate deployment of servers.
Previously WebPI command line was released as a sample tool on Satish's blog (here) but now we are moving it to a fully supported deliverable from the WebPI team. We are shipping it today as a stand-alone download but going forward, we plan to deliver it as part of the full WebPI installation (so you'll get both the UX and command line versions with a single install)
