Welcome to this issue of the RunCloud RoundUp for Monday 8th October 2018.
From the blog this week we have a guide to help you set up and run multiple WordPress sites on a RunCloud managed cloud server, and we take a look at the benefits the teams feature brings to all RunCloud business plan subscribers.
In other news from around the development infowebs… We finally have a release date, November 19th, for WordPress 5… and with it, Gutenberg! It is October and that means Hacktoberfest is upon us again, celebrate all things open source by contributing this year! We have an indepth article that looks at the state of Drupal 2019, funny that… perhaps a little early? And Nativescript-Vue 2.0 has been released, build your mobile web applications with the Vue framework, but what will you choose to run your backend?
And more… news that PHP7.4 will bring typed properties, a welcome addition to the language! At the Pagely blog, John Hughes introduces 9 free tools that are essential for plugin development, see if you agree. Shankar at OpenSenseLabs explores the power of microservices architecture with Drupal 8. The Elementor podcast looks at the success of ACF and Elliot Condon, the man behind the most widely plugin for WordPress and custom content. Learn how Laravel 5.7 introduces several Mail localization improvements, and finally Tomas Vortuba speaks of the 5 pieces of advice he wished he had been given before contributing to open source. (maybe perfect timing with Hacktoberfest?)
Leading our tutorials section… Peter Tasker at the Delicious Brains blog walks us through End to End testing with Cypress. Sylvan Ash shows us how to send SMS reminders with Symfony at the Twilio blog. Star tutorials takes us through PSR, the standards enabling PHP framework and library interoperability, perhaps the secret behind PHPs reinvigoration.
We also have an introduction to the command line interface from Carl Alexander, Murze shows us how to use custom HTML components in our Blade views, Dan Englishby demonstrates 5 ways to loop through a PHP array, and finally Brendt explores Laravel Views Models at his Stitcher blog.
