Status of the new Entity API and Typed Data
Click here to watch Status of the new Entity API and Typed Data.
Drupal 8 comes with a shiny new Entity Field API (codename: EntityNG) based upon the underlying Typed Data API. However, we have too few developers that are into the details of the new APIs. So in this session we'll try to get a broader understanding of the APIs, followed by a discussion of what's left/next.
- Introduce the Typed Data API and the ideas behind it
- See how EntityNG and Typed Data relates
- Validation for Typed Data and entities (based upon symfony validator)
- Current status of the conversion
- Discuss problems and next steps
