What was our plan for 2018 in Contributte organization.

This blogpost just summarized some points of year 2018 for Contributte organization. Originally published on Github issue.

This is roadmap for 2018 for Contributte ecosystem, from my point of view.

Finalize

Transform to contributte (composer, namespace, codesniffer, PHP 7.1):

PSR

Create PSR-based repositories for Nette/Contributte applications:

New packages

We still have been missing some tiny integrations of:

  • βœ… Monolog
  • βœ… Redis
  • βœ… Facebook
  • Symfony Validator
  • Symfony Translator
  • Google

These packages have their implementations in Kdyby (Validator, Monolog, etc..). But Kdyby has unsure/unpredictable future and Kdyby’s integrations are little bit fat (my feelings only).

Acquisitions

Ublaboo βœ…

We’ve been working with @paveljanda on big top-secret project about contributte and ublaboo. First swallow you could notice in contributte/application repository.

Arachne

We’ve been working with @mabar / @enumag on back-porting Arachne into Contributte. See more in special issue, #2, for that transfer.

Cleanup

I’m not quite sure how to deal with some empty repositories. There’re some good ideas and thoughts, but I don’t have enough time. Maybe others? We’ll see.

Team

Contributte organization consists of 10 members, at this time.

Thank you guys for being in Contributte and try to do your best. Some of them improve 1 repository, some improve more then one.

Website βœ…

Contributte is not a small project, we need a website. I would like to create something similar to this website (https://docusaurus.io/docs/en/installation.html), I like the schema/layout a lot.

We’ll probably use Hugo as static generator, unless there’ll a be big mind-changer in usage.

The game-changer in static sites generators is Vuepress (https://vuepress.vuejs.org/), looks simple and powerful. But I’m not sure how to handle multi-repo documentation.

We need to discuss it deeper.

Playground βœ…

In Contributte we have the main goal to show stable and working packages to others, thus we are building our playground.

For now, there is just API example, which is quite old and contributte/api has been transformed into Apitte anyway. Latest example of working API is in apitte/playgroud.

We need to focus more on playground, examples and tutorials to spread our packages. Don’t you think guys? Sure, you do.

Let’s create some examples:

  • contributte/console
  • contributte/event-dispatcher
  • contributte/middlewares
  • contributte/forms + recaptcha
  • and many others…

Ideas

I am still active in Java development and there’s a cool feature called monads. I would like to have someting similar in Contributte.

More then less we have done a hell great job and thanks to all guys around us.
