Drupal 8: Happy, but not satisfied
Dec 03, 2015 @ 10:53:57

In this new post to his site Drupal developer Larry Garfield talks about why he's "happy, but not satisfied" about the release of Drupal 8 and the current state of the code in this major milestone.

Two weeks ago (hey, I've been busy and trying to sleep for once), after 1716 days of work by more than 3312 people the Drupal community finally released Drupal 8, the latest release of the best community-driven web software in the world. The blogosphere is already filled with congratulatory blog posts celebrating the immense accomplishment, and deservedly so.

A number of people recently have asked me how I feel about Drupal 8's release, especially around the PHP community. Overall, my answer has to be that I'm happy, but not satisfied.

Among the things on his "happy" list are the fact that you can "teach an old codebase new tricks", that there's a real framework underneath it and that more modern development styles are being followed. On the flip side, there are some things he's not entirely satisfied with including the current state of OOP in the project, the testability of the codebase, how Composer was adopted and the lack of layout support in core. He gets into reasoning for his points on both sides but ends the post on a happier note, pointing out the people he's thankful for and the work that's been done by each to make the project what it is today.
