The Patterns Installation Profile module provides a simple integration of the Patterns module into Drupal's installer screens, and enables a user to execute one or more pre-configured Patterns during the site's installation.
This module requires the Patterns module in order to function. It is an extension of Patterns, and is not meant to stand on it's own. The Patterns module provides a way to automatically setup and configure multiple features on a Drupal site by reading and executing site configuration stored in easy to read files. Currently supported formats for configuration files (also called "patterns") are XML, YAML, or PHP arrays.
