Website Importer
You enter website URL, and the depth of links to follow.
The App scrapes the website for assets, text, links, html, css, js. The app analyzes the content and attempts to reconstruct website in magnolia.
Obviously over-ambitious - but a useful sub task is simply grabbing all image resources and adding them to dam workspace / Assets app.
Admin for Distributed Computing AppUsers would download a client where processing needed by the server owner -  could be passed off to willing clients. SP  
Twitter management appDecide which users or hashtags you want to include in a stream - and have ability to display tweets in a component.

Look at planet magnolia, similar? - could migrate it to m5 and add twitter? Concept Magnolia Planet Planet RSS



User preferences app     
Faceted search configuration appEnable you to create searches which could then be used to populate a component with many items returned by the search. Like MBC page.

*********************** APP IDEAS ADDED AFTER VOTE ********    
Native Mobile App ExporterExport a static or semi-static skeleton of a Magnolia site, including necessary boilerplate to create native apps for IOS, Android, Windows mobile, etc via PhoneGap.
Extra credit - Actually integrate Phonegap build service so you can create the native app directly from magnolia app.
Link Checker

App for checking broken external links. Common RFP request. While Magnolia CMS takes care that internal links don't break, external links often break unnoticed.

  • Integrate an existing crawler such as wget or curl.
  • Crawl through URLs in stkExternalLink components and in CKEditor external links
  • Identify broken links (404).
  • Report the results to the user in the Pulse.
  • Allow the user to launch ad hoc crawls or scheduled crawls.

A) Granular config app /

'Config isolator'


B) 'Config isolation mode'

zoom, granular view in config browser subapp.


  • At present all modules>apps are viewable as a list under Modules in Configuration.
  • The granular config app allows you to open a module in a details subapp and see only that module config.
  • From here, you can continue opening details subapps for actions, action bar, workbench config etc.

  • Option: Each details subapp features an action that implements the change, meaning user doesn't have to refresh each detail subapp in turn, in order to view the changes (made "elsewhere' ).

  • Option: User can only work in one subapp at a time, meaning that a freeze is required. To navigate away from the (details) subapp, user has to submit the change. This is to prevent conflicts, user confusion.


Variation (expansion of existing functionality as opposed to an 'app')

In-app zoom for Config app; hoist effect where you can simply isolate in the config subapp the module/app you want to work with. This does not require additional details subapps and has benefit of changes being immediate.



Translate Magnolia UI to another language.

  • Create an app that edits i18n key values.
  • Read English properties files and render a spreadsheet-like editable view for translators
  • Export the translated the strings back to properties files.
  • Integrated patch submission mechanism: "Send your translation to Magnolia"
i18n in Magnolia 5
