SugarCRM 7 is here. Well, sort of. For new customers who are On Demand at least. What this means is that the traffic light has turned from green to yellow and modules for SugarCRM 6.x need to start making progress towards 7.x compatibility. From our experiences with 7, there will be some hills to climb initially to figure out best practices for converting existing functionality to the new ways of doing things. Thankfully there are some great resources already available out there.
Jeff Bickart of NEPO Systems has started a GitHub repo for taking an example SugarCRM 6 module to 7. We highly advise checking out the existing example set that is in there along with contributing additional common use-cases. You can keep up-to-date on their full migration demonstration at http://sugarcrm-dev.blogspot.com/.
In addition, SugarCRM just recently release the Sugar Developer Guide for 7.0. Here you will get a fantastic primer of the architecture, diagnostic tools that you should be using, and more. Here is a list of some of the content covered:
- Backward Compatibility
- UI Model
- Legacy MVC
- Data Framework
- Language Framework
- Sugar Logic
- Extension Framework
- Logic Hooks
- Performance Tuning
Don't forget to regularly check the SugarCRM Developer Blog as well. There is constantly new content being posted such as the very helpful introduction to the new RESTful API.
