DrupalEasy Podcast 113: No More Teasing

Salim Lakhani (salimlakhani), President and CEO of WebEnabled.com joins Ted Bowman (barely) and Mike Anello to talk about DevPanel, a brand-new way to manage server and development environments from one central location. Salim gives us a complete rundown of the product and how it is designed to be the “CPanel for developers”. In addition, we dare to take on the Move Git repositories to Github discussion, and make our picks of the week!


  • Registration now open for DevPanel - register today to get on the waiting list for access.
  • Create full development environments like DrupalPro using DevPanel.
  • Git Flow integration.

  2. Michael Anello (ah, shucks)
  3. Vegas, Baby
  4. Dries
  5. Auto-update

Salim mentioned "auto-update" as a feature he would like to see in Drupal core. How scary. This would be the first module that any decent dev would disable and even remove the folder/file, so that it could never be used.

Salim mentioned DevPanel is available as open source. Could you provide a link to the source code?

Sounds like a great project - excellent to hear about it!

Would auto-update be so bad if its done right? Maybe I'm wrong...
These guys were wrong too :-)

This was up there with Dries and webchick for my most anticipated DrupalEasy Podcast episodes, and I ended up having a meeting at the same time!

So excited for this launch. I think this could seriously speed up my workflow, and I know that WebEnabled will do it right. So happy the source is (A)GPL.
