Development Update: Responsive ACP & CodeSniffer

Posted by naderman in Development with the tags on October 28th, 2013

Thank you all for your feedback on the responsive version of prosilver which we published on Area51 last week. Your feedback has lead to a large number of improvements and corrections over the last days, the last of which will show up on Area51 later this week. Following the responsive version of prosilver, Arty has also finished a pull request for a responsive version of the Administration Control Panel. So you will be able to test the responsive ACP on your handheld devices in Alpha2 which should be released within the next 2 weeks.

We integrated a pull request which enables CodeSniffer in our automated test suite. CodeSniffer is a tool which can automatically check our code for coding standard violations. A human readable version of the coding guidelines for Ascraeus is available at This change will ensure that every pull request and commit is automatically checked for misformatted code as part of our Travis CI builds.

Some MOD authors have started to test the new extension system but we are still looking for more feedback and help with improving the extension documentation on the wiki. One of the improvements implemented this week expands the routing configuration for extensions to allow a definition of routes across multiple files. Routing is the process of matching a URL to a particular piece of code within an extension which is handled with the Symfony Routing Component in Ascraeus.
