Projects implemented by Droptica often require a large amount of coding in PHP. Taking advantage of various tool and configurations allows us to streamline the process and make it far more convenient and pleasant. In this post, we wanted to share our experiences and describe an ideal software configuration for coding in PHP (mainly in Drupal, since we are a Drupal agency). The base software that we use includes Linux (most people use Ubuntu) and PHPStorm as IDE.
We do a lot of Drupal development. We also do a lot of automated testing. This is why we decided to complement the standard functionality of Codeception with some new modules dedicated to Drupal. This helps us a lot in our daily work. As in our previous article, all examples listed below will be based on a project based on docker-console, which is why we encourage everybody to read the previous articles first if you didn’t do so yet.
