As Drupal is increasingly widely used as a back end for application ecosystems, developers of wildly diverse backgrounds are now retrieving and manipulating data from Drupal in unprecedented ways. With Drupal 8 and core REST support articulating an ... [More] API-first vision for the decoupled future, Drupal is eminently well-prepared to back a bevy of applications with divergent approaches. There's just one problem: non-Drupal developers don't know Drupal. That's where Waterwheel comes in. Waterwheel is an emerging ecosystem of software development kits (SDKs) built by the Drupal community which ease and accelerate development of applications in other technologies. If you will momentarily forgive the flawed metaphor, Waterwheel helps non-PHP and non-Drupal developers "speak" Drupal. Tags:  acquia drupal planet [Less]

Last week I wrote how to make a multi-column section with Drupal Paragraphs and Bootstrap.  This post describes how to take a similar approach to create a Carousel.  Creating this using Paragraphs allows your content administrators an easy way to ... [More] add a Slideshow/Carousel to their pages. I am going to assume that you are including Bootstrap CSS and JS in your theme, and that you have the Paragraphs module installed and have a few Paragraphs already set up.  Go to Structure > Paragraph types to click the Add paragraphs type button.  Add a Paragraph bundle called Slideshow (Also could be called Carousel, Gallery, or Slider depending on you or your company's nomenclature). Add a field called Slides.  We will use this to add items to the the carousel.  I like to use a reference field to other paragraphs, so we can select Image Paragraphs, Simple Paragraphs, Video Paragraphs, even the Multicolumn paragraph I wrote about last week where it can have additional Paragraphs.  Yes, that would be a Paragraph in a Paragraph in a Paragraph!  All is fair in love and Entity References. On the Add field screen, in the Add a new field dropdown, select Paragraph under Reference revisions. Read more [Less]

Start:  2016-09-06 12:00 - 2016-09-09 23:55 UTC Event type:  Online meeting (eg. IRC meeting) ... [More] Drupal has adopted semantic versioning and a scheduled release cycle starting with Drupal 8.0.0. This means that it is possible within a major Drupal version to add new functionality in a backwards-compatible way, and there is no need to wait for Drupal 9 for improvements. The second such version, Drupal 8.2.0, is going to be released on October 5th 2016, including the following new experimental modules: Content Moderation (to manage content review workflows), Outside-In (for editing configuration without leaving your frontend), Place Block (to add blocks directly to the page), and DateTime Range (to store end dates on date fields). To prepare for Drupal 8.2.0, we released three beta versions in August. Announcements for beta1, beta2, and beta3 detail the significant changes made for Drupal 8.2.x. Now, we are getting ready to create Drupal 8.2.0-rc1, the first release candidate, the week of September 7, 2016. This means several things in terms of support for Drupal 8.1.x versions and allowed patches in Drupal 8.2.x: Starting with the RC, the 8.2.x branch will be subject to release candidate restrictions, with only critical fixes and certain other limited changes allowed. To ensure a stable and timely release candidate, a commit freeze for the 8.2.x branch will begin Tuesday, September 6 at 1200 UTC. The week of September 7 is also the final scheduled patch release window for 8.1.x, and it will not receive further development or support after that date aside from its final security release window on September 21 (which will not include bug fixes). Site owners and module or theme authors should prepare to update to 8.2.x. As a consequence, all outstanding issues filed against 8.1.x will be automatically migrated to 8.2.x after the final 8.1.x patch release. Future bug reports should be targeted against the 8.2.x branch. 8.3.x will remain open for new development during the 8.2.x release candidate phase. See the Drupal core release cycle overview, Allowed changes during the Drupal 8 release cycle, and Drupal 8 backwards compatibility and internal API policy for more information. Minor versions like Drupal 8.2.0 may include changes to user interfaces, translatable strings, themes, internal APIs like render arrays and controllers, etc. (See the Drupal 8 backwards compatibility and internal API policy for details.) Developers and site owners should test the release candidate to prepare for these changes. [Less]

This month's Drupal meetup was held at Srijan Technologies office in Bangalore on August 27, 2016. This was the first time we had a Drupal meetup in Kalyannagar, or even so far north in Bangalore and as such, we had a lot of new faces. There were around 20 attendees out of 32 RSVP's which is just about the attendance ratio in meetups in Bangalore.

I recently noticed in Drupal that although there are modules that let you display login messages such as "Log in successful for @username." (LoginToboggan) or "Welcome back, @username." (Persistent Login), there's no easy way to display logout ... [More] messages. So after doing some research, I found a patch for Drupal 7 that I just updated to work on the recently released Drupal 7.50. Let's take a quick look at the simple code changes in the modules/user/user.pages.inc file (lines 194 - 214): 1) Before: /** * Menu callback; logs the current user out, and redirects to the home page. */ function user_logout() { user_logout_current_user(); drupal_goto(); } Tags:  Drupal 7 Drupal Planet [Less]

Saying a modern nonprofit or business needs a website is like saying the tires on your car need air. Deny it and you’re going to have a bad time. Given the significant tasks required of your website, from fundraising and ecommerce to PR and ... [More] campaigning, the tools you use to power it and the interface through which your team will interact with the site should be given important consideration. Lucky for you, one of the most widely used content management systems (CMS), just got a major update. Drupal 8 brings too many new features to discuss fully here, but you’ll be happy to know the end product is one that’s worth the investment. Here’s why: One – The content authoring experience is more efficient Drupal’s admin interface has evolved over the years, and we’re happy to see it continue here. For starters, the new interface is streamlined, mobile-friendly, and by emphasizing simplicity, it makes the process of creating content and managing your site more efficient. Then comes Quick Edit, a tool which allows you to edit content directly on the page, without having to switch to the admin panel. Lastly, some under-the-hood improvements to how Drupal 8 caches portions of your site, means that logged-in users — whether they login just to access a community or special resources, or it's your staff managing the site and adding content — will likely see a significant boost to performance. These improvements just underscore how the experience for content authors and editors means your team takes less time, and less clicks, to update content on Drupal 8. Two – The improvements for developers means easier maintenance A number of new features in Drupal 8 are developer focused. There’s Twig, a new templating engine, some commonly used modules are now included by default in Drupal 8, and there’s better support for things like accessibility and multilingual support. Unless you’re a developer, you’re not likely to ever see these changes first hand, but you will experience them. These improvements for developers mean maintenance tasks will largely be much easier (and occasionally faster) for developers to complete. This saves you money on regular support, and allows you to devote that time and resources into other areas, like digital strategy or building new features. Three – Migrating is easier than it's ever been If you’ve been through a redesign of a website, you know that one of the most daunting tasks is getting all of the content you want to keep migrated and configured properly inside your new website. In this area, Drupal 8 has seen a major leap forward. Drupal 8 can read the database from a Drupal 6 or 7 site, and pull in configurations and other settings in addition to the actual content. Practically speaking, this removes what was previously a major task for content migrations: writing all of the code that retrieves and assembles the existing site’s content. Now, Drupal 8 assembles it for you. In some cases, this could cut the time to do a content migration in half. We’ve been enjoying building new projects in Drupal 8, some of which we will be able to share with you soon. Until then, if you have questions about Drupal 8 that you’d like us to touch upon, or if you’re wondering if Drupal 8 can work for you, get in touch. Tags:  drupal drupal 8 [Less]
