I have used LiipImagineBundle ( https://github.com/liip/LiipImagineBundle/ ) in the past with some projects in Symfony2 and has some interesting features that speed up thumbnails management of a project.
Basically they add some controllers and filters that allow you to generate thumbnails on the fly.
I have done a similar adaptation on an old Yii1 project, by adding a new controller to the application and some additional configuration by which I could simply “configure” a new thumbnail filter in a config file and then apply it to a image directly from the view file.
I think this kind of functionality could be useful for this extension so:
- Would you consider it a good idea to discuss the actual new features and implement them?
- Can someone point me to how should I proceed to build this new extension by myself?
I have seen that Gii can generate Extension structure and also that there is so documentation on developing yii2 extensions, what I think I have issues with right now is understanding how can I develop the extension directly inside a project and at the same time be able to publish it to Github.
I am using NetBeans and Windows so it might be trickier than Linux because I cannot create symlinks.
