A Content Staging Solution for Drupal 8 (and more)

Tue, 04/21/2015 - 09:43 -- rprice

The content staging solution for Drupal 8 is based on a re-designed version of the Deploy module. This solution consists of some contrib modules and depends on three Drupal core modules. The core dependencies are Entity API, Serialization and Restful Web Services. The contributed module dependencies are Relaxed Web Services, Multiversion, Key-value Extensions and (soon) Deploy. The Relaxed Web Services module provides a Restful/Relaxed JSON API and endpoints for entities, file attachments, administrative tasks like revisions comparison, starting/stopping replication, etc.

In this article we’ve seen how easy it is to create a field formatter and extend default behaviour in Drupal 8. We’ve only touched on overriding the viewElements() of this plugin but we can do much more to further customise things. You are also not required to extend the ImageFormatter. There are plenty of existing plugins you can either extend from or use as an example.


Backdrop Does a Disservice to Developers | Mark Ahrens

Fri, 03/13/2015 - 06:25 -- rprice

Mark said, “I have a personal aversion to being too tied to one tool, so I want to make sure developers are thinking about their career right now but also 5, 10, 20 years from now.” Who can argue against this? At face value, these words are plain and simple and true. I can’t speak for every supporter of Backdrop CMS, but I personally will be learning both. I choose to do this because I can and I believe it opens many doors to what Drupal can do and how it innovates. I was working in Procedural PHP before I found Drupal in 2007.

Whether you’re a site builder, module or theme developer, or simply an end user of a Drupal website, Drupal 8 has tons in store for you.

Note that since Drupal 8 is still under active development, some of the details here may change prior to its release. Drupal 8 is now feature-frozen, so most information should remain relevant. Where applicable, Drupal 7 contributed equivalents of Drupal 8 features will be noted.

The conceptual difference between Drupal, as embodied in Drupal 8, and other major PHP projects is vastly smaller than ever before, providing PHP coders two key advantages: it makes it easier for non-Drupal developers to learn Drupal and it makes it easier for Drupal developers to learn non-Drupal systems.


Principles of Configuration Management - Part One | Chapter Three

Loading configuration and re-saving it immediately should not result in any changes. Put another way, if the all the runtime dependencies of the configuration are satisfied (i.e it works), then regardless of any additional modules being enabled, the configuration should not change. An interesting case of configuration chainging unexpectedly was discovered in a bug with the filter module. The filter module was adding all the disabled text filters to every filter format configuration entity.
