In the last month, I’m working on two different PHP projects here at Facile.it: in the first one, which is new and still in development, I decided to adopt GitLab CI for the build, since we use GitLab CE for our Git repositories; I then created a continuous deployment pipeline for the staging environment, directly to a Kubernetes cluster, leveraging Docker Compose to make the configuration easier.
After, I decided to start migrating a previous, internal project of mine to the same approach, since it’s currently in production with a dumb approach that provokes some downtime during deployments; on the contrary, doing a rolling deployment with Kubernetes is surprisingly easy!
This time around we have a minor version bump, due to a new feature!
This releases has nothing big on the outside, but a lot of code rework under the hood. The DI has been completely migrated from YAML to PHP (so no more
symfony/yaml) and support for Symfony 4 has been added; also, a small bug has been fixed.
Another bump is needed to the sub-package constraint. Also, a known issue with Composer has been discovered.
With this release, Paraunit replaces the suggestion of
dama/doctrine-test-bundle; also there’s a new feature that will report any test failure due to deprecation warnings catched by the Symfony PHPUnit Bridge.
