June has been a busy month again at Platform.sh!
Maybe you have seen us at the following events:
Or maybe you have heard that we hired 4 new collaborators on our team. You can see them on our company team page.
In the mean time, we continuously worked on our core product to squeeze more performance and improve its overall robustness.
We also released a bunch of new features and enhancements. Here is a non exhaustive listing of what has been happening.
As usual, we’re putting lots of effort improving the usability of Platform.sh which starts with what you can see.
The web UI has been greatly improved over the last month and here are some of the new features you can see:
We’ve also fixed multiple bugs:
We usually don’t say much about these. As we continuously keep those updated (security updates happen on-the-fly) and we make sure this stays transparent to our users (as much as softwarely possible we don’t introduce breaking changes…) but here are some highlights from the previous month:
PLATFORM_PROJECT_ENTROPYenvironment variable which has a random value, stable throughout the project’s life. This can be used for Drupal hash salt (see the example here).
We’ve also implemented a lot of new features to the CLI based your feedbacks and ideas:
platform multicommand, to execute arbitrary commands on multiple projects
platform createcommand to create new projects from the CLI
For more informations, you can access the public CLI Releases on GitHub.
In our quest to promote development best practices, we’ve converted our Drupal 8 example repository to work with Composer on PHP 7.
