You thought Lando was just a flight simulator. A tool to be used on the ground, safely replicating the real-world environment you and your team face in production. What if I told you that Lando is also your production facility, your launchpad, and your mission control? That it’s the launch vehicle that takes you to orbit as well as the ground-support system that sees your mission through to success? Whether you’re new to Lando or have extensive flight hours, prepare for liftoff as we take Lando on a mission to deploy to Mars.
In part one of this two-part series, we will cover how Lando can quickly and easily simulate your production environment for all members of your team. We’ll spin up a local Drupal-as-an-app environment for sending static HTML to space using the Tome module. We’ll prevent rapid unscheduled disassembly of your deployment by automating testing with Drupal Test Traits. Finally, we’ll jettison Drupal’s front end and demonstrate working with decoupled environments
