This October SymfonyLive takes place in Berlin and we are happy to support the conference as Gold sponsors. Last year we had the chance to present Pagekit for the very first time to the audience. Now, one year later we are even prouder to give first insights into Pagekit's Beta version. Join our lightning talk on Thursday or just meet us and grab some Pagekit stickers at our booth in the sponsor area.
Today we are happy to introduce the first Pagekit Beta version. You guys have been very patient, but believe us when we tell you: it was worth the wait. The reason this took a while is simple: Pagekit has been revised entirely. To name just the most fundamental changes, here is a small overview:
- A new user interface
- A site tree to manage everything in one place
- A new default theme, called One
- An even more modular architecture
- Data-reactive components with Vue.js
- Package management using Composer
To us this Beta release feels more like a sort of Pagekit 2.0. We changed and reworked Pagekit, iteration by iteration to create the best possible experience for end users and developers. Now, let's take a closer look at all the new stuff.
London in September and Berlin in November: Two opportunities for us to be part of the Symfony Live events and to present Pagekit to the Symfony community.
We are very happy to join this years SymfonyLive conferences in London and Berlin. It's a great opportunity for us to show Pagekit to the Symfony community. We started working on Pagekit three years ago when we also attended to the first SymfonyLive 2011 in Paris. Today we are quite excited to come back and present Pagekit for the first time. We are looking forward to show you Pagekit and are curious about your feedback.
Woohoo! Pagekit is the most trending PHP project on Github this month. With more than 1040 stargazers and over 105 forks Pagekit does seem to get some attention from the PHP developer community.
Altogether there have been more than 1200 commits from 26 contributers. Of course, alpha releases are always a bit rough but 79 issues already have been closed.
Finally, the wait is over... Today we are very proud to announce the first public release of Pagekit! It's been 8 months since we published our concept page for Pagekit in November 2013 and we are thrilled to share the first alpha version of Pagekit with everyone.
All in all we worked over 2 years on Pagekit, which included 5497 commits, 4 redesigns, 5 core API changes, lots of code refactors and about 2374 liters of coffee. We also finished our website pagekit.com with a neat docs section for beginners and coders to get you started. So, get over there, create your account and take Pagekit for a test drive.
