Droptica is using Docker for over 2 years. I will show you how it transformed our processes and allowed us to save hundreds of hours every year. I will also tell you why we choose Docker in the first place. How it allowed us to work quicker and have complete environments available locally, even with complex services.
Welcome to our blog page. We'd like to share knowledge of the areas that are the most fascinating to us.
Has it ever happened to you that when you were looking on a website, you weren’t sure whether a font you used was 12 pt or 13 pt? Or maybe you kept looking at an image, wondering whether it had been moved slightly to the left before? If the layout is a priority on your website, maybe it’s time to think about automating the testing of this aspect of your project. VisualCeption is a noteworthy solution for exactly this use case.
Taking into consideration the fact that most of our products are based on Drupal, the tests should also naturally work best with such projects. This is why we decided to complement the standard functionality of Codeception with some new modules dedicated for Drupal.
If you read our previous posts, you already know very well how to start a project in the docker-console. If you haven’t done it yet, you should start with this article, because for the purpose of this article we assume that your project in the docker-console is already up and running, therefore all commands executed below will refer to it.
When creating websites, you probably sometimes saw how your page changes its appearance on different browsers, not to mention a variety of devices. Depending on how many different configurations we will want to check, the amount of time spent on testing them will grow rapidly and the enthusiasm will probably decrease at a similar rate with repeating the same action on another device.
Content creation using the Paragraphs module is a completely different approach compared to the "standard" content creation in Drupal. In short: we prepare the components (paragraph type) and then, during the creation of an entry, we select any of the available components.
Droptica's roots date back to 2008 when one of our co-founders opened his first own software house – openBIT. Since then, our main goal is continuous improvement, so that we are able to and deal with even greater, more interesting and ambitious projects. It would not be possible without hiring programmers who are able to face the challenges.
