StarAzure Quick Start / Demo Package
What is a StarAzure demo package ?
A quick start package provided by StarAzure will help you build a site that looks like our theme demo in as little as 2 minutes. We spend weeks and months of dedicated time to build the themes and demo packages. By providing the quick start package, we ensure that you do not necesairly have to re-invent the wheel.
We do not install third party modules, plugins and extensions in almost all cases. However, if we build a theme with specific purpose such as shopping cart which Joomla does not support, we may install a third party extension.
Our goal is to make the demo package as light weight as possible.
