Project Deploy is a simple Web application that lets you make a few choices on what your Web project needs, and then it generates a directory structure for you:
It offers a couple unique features from other project folder downloads such as customization, valid XHTML, HTML, and CSS, but the most unique is bookmarking.
Deploy*’s bookmarking feature allows the user to go through the form only one time and then bookmarking the next page (deploy.php). When the user returns to that bookmark it instantly generates another .zip folder with all the settings the user had previously entered.
If you have a Mac you could add that bookmark to your dock and it’s only a click away. Windows and Linux users could also add the bookmark to their desktop and it will always be right there waiting.
This is just the beginning of course. You could imagine that it would get a whole lot more useful if you could deploy to a cloud and have a project setup for you. Imagine if the options were more like “Give me Rails 2.2 with jQuery.” There is room to take this further.
