Using Drupal 8's new route controllers

As part of the Web Services and Context Core Initiative, traditional procedural page callbacks were converted to shiny new Object Oriented route controllers. 

In this post, we cover the basics of creating a route controller, and how to pass in dependencies using dependency injection.

In following posts, we'll look at how to convert Drupal 7 custom access callbacks, to the new AccessCheckInterface, as well as dynamic routes.

Automated Drupal Testing with Github Pull Requests

We are passionate about code quality. We want to make sure our code is well tested and confirms to standards at all times. If there is a bug, we want to know as soon as possible, so we can fix it and keep our code stable, well tested and bug free, even in early development versions.

Typical workflows use a git topic branch for development of each feature, and require code to be merged into a development branch before automated tests are run. The problem with this approach is it tests code after it has been reviewed and merged.

Using Jenkins for automated testing of Github pull requests, we can get one step closer to code quality nirvana.
