Vagrant & Chef, for Drupal Developers
Alex Dergachev found of the Evolving Web
What is Vagrant?
- A wrapper on VBoxManage
- A workflow
- A way of life ?
Why use a virtualization for development?
Snapshotting is awesome, rebuilding and imitating the prod environment.
Puppet / Chef will make provisioning easiers. Vagrant is a wrapper for vbox manage, which is poorly written. This creates a vm and provide the base instance.
Run these GUI installers
Download virtualbox, then the vagrant installer, (no longer a gem)
- Just a VM images with vagrant user & ssh keys
- Virtualbox guest additions
- Installed chef, ruby & puppet
Vewee can help build a basebox.
Don't be STUPID, Grasp SOLID
What is object oriented programming?
You don't necessairly need classes and objects. We can create OOP projects using an API, analogy of
Single purpose code.
You would have to rebuild the app since the code is specific and not modular.
House of cards code, changing the code in one place can cause global issues.
If the other developers that use your code need to think, you need to rethink your naming.
The Rule of Three, if I need to copy and past it twice, then you should refactor.
Do one thing and do it well. Keep your objects, methods narrow
Code should be open for extension but closed for modification.
Liskov substitution principle
Parent type is left then we extend the parent type. The children add but never limit.
Interface Segregation Principle
Dependency inversion principle
Law of Demeter
Principle of Least Knwoldege. Your code should never assume to know more than the first degree.
Principle of Least Astonishment
Your code should not surprise, it should be obvious and self document. It should be as intuititve as possible.
