Quick demo, need input on how to strip down Alfresco

Hi,

I've been tasked to come up with a quick and dirty demo of a Digital Asset Management (DAM) application.

It was decided that I should work with Alfresco, of which I know pretty much nothing about, except what I've learned in the past day trying to build and deploy it on Tomcat.

The goal is to have a web app where users can be created by an admin user, and each user has a repository where video/audio/image files can be uploaded, along with Metadata information.  Users should also be able to preview the files in the case of videos once uploaded.  Finally, the Metadata info needs to be customizable, and searchable.

I realize that this is a very small subset of what Alfresco can do, and so there would be a lot to strip out or hide…

Examples of things to strip out :

- In the toolbar, just have "My Home" and maybe rename it, remove "Company Home", etc…
- Remove left-side panel, and remove button to show/hide it in the toolbar
- Remove "Raise an issue" in toolbar
- Have only one "space", e.g. some "Documents" space, where user can see his hierarchy of documents

I'm hoping that someone can tell me what can be done through configuration files, and what needs actual code modifications ?

Tks.
