Creating custom dropdowns in eZ Platform

"eZ Platform comes with a bunch of utilities that can help you build rich UI. They make your administration panel better in terms of UX and overall pleasure of using the eZ Platform CMS features. One of such utilities is a small component/library that enables you to implement custom dropdowns anywhere in the system."

Symfony local web server for eZ Platform development

"At SymfonyCon 2018 in Lisbon the Symfony local web server was announced. As a Symfony framework app this works fine with eZ Platform. I find it to be a great option to run simple eZ Platform project that do not need all the complexity of setting up Nginx/Apache or Docker or whatever."
