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.

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.

In Drupal 8 we can easily add our own command to Drush. The whole code for the new command will be put in a custom module. We have to create only 2 files. The structure looks as follows.

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.

Everyone who has ever worked in IT has surely stumbled upon communication issues between programmers and testers, or in other cases, another person whose role was to check whether the task was completed correctly. Speaking with coders, you can hear many anecdotes regarding bug reports and feedback they have received. When returning a task, I often find myself wanting to write just: “It doesn’t work!” However, situations in which nothing actually works are pretty rare.

Over the course of recent years, websites have undergone a significant change. Many new services and social media websites have been created, mobile applications now play a very significant role on the internet, and various on-line services exchanging data is nothing out of the ordinary anymore. We could even say that integration with external services is standard now, especially in the case of large e-commerce applications or on-line payment systems.

Time has already passed since the premiere of Drupal 8. New projects and modules are released all the time, and there is an ever-increasing number of projects compatible with version 8.x at drupal.org. Sadly, these versions are often still unstable and filled with various bugs.
