Are majority of these features available in Vanilla Open source?
I came across this link : http://vanillaforums.com/info/plugins which points out the good plugins available for cloud hosting of vanilla. How many of these plugins are available with open source vanilla?
I cannot test vanilla on my server now due to some time restraints, so it would be really helpful if some one can give an outline of this. Features like live search, sso , social share, mail chimp integration are nifty and integral, I guess.
