Netgen’s Tags Bundle gets an admin interface!

Edi Modrić from Netgen reflects on the development of Tags Bundle, the Crowdfunding campaign they ran, and also introduces Tags Bundles admin interface.

"We created a generic admin interface for tags in pure Symfony and Twig, meaning that all pages and actions in the interface are classic Symfony CRUD controllers, all rendering and routing is done on the backend, and so on. Since tags admin interface itself is generic, as mentioned before, once you install the new version of Tags Bundle, you can use the interface as a standalone app, by going to /tags/admin/ URL in your eZ Platform installation, or you can use it integrated into Platform UI." Read the full blog over at Netgen.
