SonataAdminBundle now uses AdminLTE theme on top of Twitter Bootstrap 3. The AdminLTE project provides a rich set of backend components for your next project.
bower is there and seems to be widely accepted. More information in the next blog post.
The redesign is a work in progress, some bits need to be fix there and there, if you have any comments please feel free to comment on this issue: https://github.com/sonata-project/SonataAdminBundle/issues/1723
PageBundle & BlockBundle
The PageBundle integrates a persistency layer on top of BlockBundle to save blocks related to a page. The integration with the admin interface has been very limited for a long time, so some efforts have been done to improve user’s experiences.
The current current code is available in the master branch for the early adopter.
What’s next ?
Along with many bug fixes, we improved the serialization and RESTful API of all Sonata’s bundles. This will be used to for one missing bit: advanced search. A first step has been done with the integration of Elasticsearch with the FosElasticaBundle's configuration inside the sandbox: https://github.com/sonata-project/sandbox/blob/2.3-develop/app/config/fos/fos_elastica.yml
Feel free to give us feedback.
