5 Striking changes I found in new architecture of Drupal 8!

in Drupal, Drupal Planet

 

I am so glad that my Dear friend Ashwini broke the ice for us. And I would

like to thank him for the same, I followed the steps and Bingo!!! 

I have Drupal on my machine. I  walked little further and quick look over changes.

 

Most striking changes I found :   

 

1) The biggest bang, if you haven't heard of is "Symfony meets Drupal 8"

Yes, that is correct! Drupal 8 has adopted many low level components like 

HttpFoundation, HttpKernel, Routing, EventDispatcher, DependencyInjection, and ClassLoader from 

Symfony to achieve more structured code & semantics with the help of OOPs,

which community was waiting a while.

 

According to me  Drupal will achive the same objects transmission through out

the flow with better encapsulation.

Setup Eclipse to work with your remote server and Drupal plugin

in Drupal, Drupal Planet, Drupal Planet, eclipse, RSE

Very often we work on projects that are hosted on a remote server. There are multiple ways to work on the remote files:

1. ssh into the remote machine and use an editor like vi or emacs to edit the files

2. Develop on your local machine and FTP every change

The second choice is preferable if you want to use an IDE or if the conenction to the server is slow.

However, there is a 3rd approach, that combines the above two. If you are using Eclipse or NetBeans as your editor, then you can connect your editor to the remote server over FTP. I will only cover Eclipse since that is what I use. Read more »
