Wikijump Updates – 10/17 – 10/23

It’s been another week, and here’s another weekly update. We’ve had 230 commits in 29 merged pull requests across 200 files, for a total of 6,036 line additions and 2,406 deletions.

Most of the work we’ve seen has fallen into one of two categories, Docker and PHP. So let’s start with our build process: We use Docker to build Wikijump. Local deployments use docker-compose to stand up all the component containers (currently php-fpm, nginx, postgres, memcached) and permit it to run locally. Several big changes were made to our build process, primarily a refactored php-fpm Docker build to be significantly sped up by taking better advantage of…
