DrupalCon Latino Bogota 2015

Drupal Console has been evolving a lot since project inception back in 2013 in DrupalCamp Costa Rica.

This projects started as a scaffolding tool, to generate the necessary code to build a Drupal 8 module, and evolved as a more advanced CLI tool you can use it to interact with your Drupal 8 installation, until last week, we used to describe the project as:

A suite of tools that you run on a command line interface (CLI) to generate boilerplate code and interact with a Drupal 8 installation.

2014: A Year of Contributions part deux

You can read the first part one of this blog post at Blink Reaction blog site when it get released. For now you can read it at this blog at http://jmolivas.com/2014-a-year-of-contributions

This post was never think as two parts this just happened not sure why. Maybe the original one is taking too long to get published, and I saw and read the text too many times that I end up writing a second part.

2014: A Year of Contributions

If you are following my blog post here, at http://www.blinkreaction.com/drupal-experts-blog, or if  you are reading my twitter timeline https://twitter.com/jmolivas, then you might have some questions about my role and how it works inside a Drupal agency like Blink Reaction.

You might ask, “does this guy do any client work?", "why is he always talking about this Console project?”.

The Drupal Console is multilingual

We are getting close hope by the end of this week, to a code-freeze on the development of this project, this code-freeze will be for about 4 weeks, in order to have time to work on the project documentation and prepare with David Flores aka @dmouse to present this project at DrupalCon Latino.

Install Drupal Console globally

As I mentioned on a previous post, one of the most recurring questions (the 2nd most to be precise) since project started is why is the installation process modifying the composer.json & composer.lock file, or why is the installer adding new libraries to "core/vendor" directory, because you know that is considered hacking the core.

Synchronize Drupal Console with Drupal 8 beta 4

After a couple of sprints and few weeks doing client work, I am back on contribute mode, and I am using my time to make sure the Drupal Console is in sync with the latest Drupal 8 Beta 4 release. 

Disclaimer: Before this update, the Drupal Console was  in sync with Beta 2 and maybe some of the changes I will mention here are related to Beta 3.

The Drupal 8 Console will sync Drupal 8 Beta releases

During the development of the console the project have been in syncronization with the development branch of Drupal 8.

This make sense at the begining of the project when Drupal 8 was in Alpha state.

What is next for the Drupal 8 Console ?

Thanks to my current employer Blink Reaction sponsoring some of my working hours, I will be able to spend more time as co-maintainer of the Drupal 8 Console project by the way David Flores (@dmouse) is the other co-maintainer of the project.

What is the Drupal 8 Console 

The Drupal 8 Console it is an effort to bring the The Console Component to Drupal 8 as you can see on the project description .
