I want to use Pimcore for my next couple of projects, and I have a few questions:
Out of the box, current version of Pimcore seems to be rather heavy, at 220 MB in compressed form and nearly 400 MB in decompressed form. Is there a way for me to slim it down a bit? Are all the dependencies mandatory, am I out of luck?
If I want to customize the installation, everything I need in the “install-profiles” directory, correct? Controllers, views, class definitions, assets, initial settings. Do I need to change anything else? And if I want to add a dependency (Deployer, typically, and some tool to work with Elasticsearch), can I just change composer.json, and then make my own Git “base repository” & composer package, or is there a better way?
Does Pimcore offer any way of easily synchronizing the database, or would I have to set something up myself through migrations?
I’ll be really grateful to anyone who can spare the time to help and answer at least some of these thanks in advance and have a great day!
