Nette Magazine #0
We are starting something new
This article is a shortened translation of a Czech e-mail magazine. Honza started with
writing some news from our community and foundation. Because we want to talk to
you, no matter where you are, we have also turned this e-mail magazine into a
blog post. We are planning a new article delivery in every 2–3 weeks. However,
a brief delay might occur depending on translation speed. If you'd like to help
us with content and/or corrections, contact Honza for more information. We are
open to any help.
This Twitter hashtag stands for small repeated events and casual community
meetings. An English equivalent, #NetteFwBeer, will also be used. These casual
meetings take place every second Wednesday in a month. If you'd like to set up
your own local community event, just create an event at http://eventle.com/(or elsewhere) and promote
it on a Nette forum. We want the community to grow and this is one of the ways
how we can make it happen.
“Poslední sobota”, which stands for Last Saturday, is a bigger happening
that is taking place on the last Saturday of every month. Unfortunately, it is
the only Czech event (so far). However, we are planning to spread the event to
even more locations (there is still plenty of places to visit) to gather and
keep all the local Nette communities together. We’d also love to visit places
beyond Czech borders to come up with some new amazing English talks. If you want
to land a hand, don’t hesitate to contact us. Initially, we’d like to expand
to Germany, Poland, Austria, and Slovakia, but our door is certainly open to
many other countries as well. :)
released a new version of a next-generation addons portal. This is the place
where you can find a lot of addons for your Nette applications. It’s still in
beta, but we are working hard to make it as seamless as possible. As soon as all
the addons are available and the latest minor visual improvements are finished,
we will place the new portal whereas the old one is going to serve as an example
Nette application on GitHub. So, if you have any ideas or bug reports, please
open an issue on GitHub or just tell us on Gitter:gitter.im/componette/componette
We are planning to launch a Nette Pro merchandise e-shop. The e-shop is
coming out in late February. The first offer will cover (official) t-shirts
only, but some additional products may be coming soon. Any gained profits will
be used to buy either new or existing equipment capable of recording our events
to make them accessible to an even broader audience.
The new version of a Tester testing tool has been released. Milo wrote a blog post
describing new features and changes involved. You can find it here: https://blog.nette.org/…tester-1-7-0.
If you are using FTP as a software deployment tool, you’ll definitely
appreciate a new version of the FTP-deployment tool that has been currently
released by David. You
can find more about the 2.3 release, including some news, on the GitHub release
page at https://github.com/…ses/tag/v2.3.
ORM Dibi-based database layer, originally developed by Vojta (Tharos), will be taken
over by Mirek (Castamir).
He’s been using Lean Mapper for a long time and has a lot of new ideas and
improvements to implement.
For the end
Next magazine edition will come shortly. This article is covering only a
small portion of all the changes planned. Finally, as a sneak peek, we are
working on new navigation through the nette.org portal. In the upcoming edition,
there will be information about a lot of new stuff, including changes in the
codebase and, of course, Nette Pro.
If you’d like to help us with further improvements, just contact Honza.
