Cocoon 2.2 at the GetTogether

Published on

Cocoon 2.2 is about to be released and I’m going to try to build a website with it. It shouldn’t be rocket science, but I’m curious to see how hard or how easy it will be. At Hippo we have spent a lot of effort in creating a Project Wizard so if I start a new project I don’t have to think about the initial set up. It’s time we don’t want to spend but it also makes you kind of lazy. I noticed it first when I started at Hippo.

Arjé gave me some exercises with the Cocoon core. For the exercises extra blocks were needed and my colleagues had to dig into their memory how to add them. When we build a website we only have to add the block to the build process and we’re done. Getting a "Hello World" from Cocoon 2.2 won’t be hard, but how easy will it be to connect to Hippo Repository and do DASL queries?

I’ll find out soon and hope to talk about it on the CocoonGT in Rome.
