Building multifunctional websites and web applications is hardly an easy task. We support ourselves in this process with various programming languages and tools.

We are the largest and best-known company dealing with creating and supporting Drupal-based websites in Poland. Our areas of expertise also include Symfony, PHP, ReactJS and front-end development. In our endeavours, we also use a variety of other software solutions, such as PHPStorm, Jenkins and Docker.

We are happy to share our experiences, describing the process of work on building and developing websites and applications at Droptica. Thanks to SCRUM and the right tools such as Slack and Jira, we ensure seamless communication between the team and the client. We systematically improve or change the software we use in order to automate repetitive actions and speed up the development work.

You can learn more about the ins and outs of our work thanks to our extensive blog articles, or you can find out what benefits we can offer you thanks to our Case Studies.

In one of our previous articles, we showed you how to start a project based on docker-drupal application. Now we would like to go a step further and show you how to add new elements to our site based on the example of mailcatcher. As we mentioned earlier, thanks to docker we can get a set of blocks, which – when properly arranged – give us a nicely working project.

To create a big, frequently updated website, you need more than just skilled editors. A solid technological foundation is also a must.  If you have a hard time choosing from the ocean of possibilities, Drupal, a versatile system of CMF-class comes to your rescue.

Everyone who codes in Drupal will sooner or later encounter the need to define tighter control of access to content. The standard mechanisms of roles and permissions are very flexible, but they may be insufficient in complex projects. When access to nodes starts to depend on, for example, fields assigned to a given user, then you have to take advantage of more advanced solutions. In Drupal 7 and 8 we can use a hook – hook_node_access() or a so-called grants mechanism.

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.

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.
