Drupal VM Generator 2.9.1 Released
30th December 2016
Warning: This post is over a year old. I don't always update old posts with new information, so some of this information may be out of date.
I spent some time yesterday working on the Drupal VM Generator, and have released versions 2.8.1, 2.9.0 and 2.9.1.
The main updates are:
- Fixed an
InvalidResponseExceptionthat was thrown from within the
boolean_as_stringTwig filter from the opdavies/twig-extensions library when the
config:generatecommand was run in non-interactive mode.
- Adding a working test suite for the existing commands, using PhpUnit and Symfony’s Process component. This is now linked to Travis CI, and the tests are run on each commit and pull request.
- The version requirements have been changed to allow 2.7 versions of the used Symfony Components, as well as the 3.x versions. This was done to resolve a conflict when also installing Drush globally with Composer.
Currently the project is based on Drupal VM 3.0.0 which is an outdated version (4.1.0 was released today). Adding updates and supporting the newer versions is a high priority, as well as keeping in sync with new releases. This will be easier with the test suite in place.
My initial thoughts are that version 2.10.0 will support Drupal VM 4.0.0, and if needed, 2.11.0 will ship shortly afterwards and support Drupal VM 4.1.0.
