What's been keeping us busy, April 2014 Edition


The redesign serie continue, after works on the demo and on the sonata-project.org websites, we are happy to present the new SonataAdminBundle theme.

SonataAdminBundle Redesign

The 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.

The new theme also provides a fundamental change in the way the Sonata Project will manage front end dependencies in the future. Two or three years ago, the javascript community does not have any “de-facto” tools to manage dependency. Things have changed now, 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.

PageBundle ~ Composer

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.

    Holy crap, this looks gorgeous! Great job to everybody who worked on this, I very much look forward to playing with it.

    This looks excellent! Will the demo site be upgraded to it soon? I'm having a few issues moving my customised 2.2 site to 2.3 and supporting the above styles - could do with a demo site to compare against
