[GSoC 2015: Hawk Authentication] Drupal Events and allowing third party modifications to Hawk Credentials

Submitted by Dragooon on Tue, 07/28/2015 - 17:19

Drupal in version 8 adapted Symfony Event dispatcher to have a better alternative to the hook system already in-place until version 7. The hook system is still there, but it is slowly being replaced by the Event dispatcher. The Event Dispatcher allows various components and modules to interact with each other without having to directly modify the code.
