I have been porting Example for Developer from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 as part of this year’ s Google Summer of Code (GSoC). This summer program is an opportunity for university students to work on projects connected with open source organisation. I have been really lucky to be a part of this initiative. I could explore deep of more technologies, version control systems as part of my project in Drupal. This gives young students a platform where they are assigned mentors who are experts and experienced in various software.
My next target is to port progress bar example, progress is a functionality of AJAX it choose either a throbber or progress bar that is displayed while awaiting a response from the callback, and add an optional message.
I was able to make the appropriate routing and forms files and maded the recomended fuctional calls but I still struggling with few error. Codes of the previously ported and currently porting modules are actively maintained on my Github repo. By the next week, I am hoping that I would complete the progress bar example, generating checkboxes and textfeilds examples.
