Progressive decoupling, a concept outlined last year in Dries Buytaert’s first post about decoupled Drupal, is a compelling approach to building Drupal's front end where content editors, site assemblers, and front-end developers maintain contiguous experiences. For content editors and site assemblers, progressive decoupling allows for contextualized interfaces, content workflow, site preview, and other features to remain usable and integrated with Drupal as a whole.
At ClikFocus, we have been following and playing with Drupal 8 for more than a year.
Welcome to Post #2 in my series about debugging in Drupal 8.
Drupal 8 is a great platform to work with not only because it is so multilingual capable out-of-the-box, but also because you can easily expand while maintaining the translatability of your data. Drupal 8’s multilingual core offers a robust multilingual foundation, making the integration process much more seamless.
The majority of Drupal 8's APIs are designed to support multilingual by default and make sane assumptions about common scenarios. As a result, there are several important things to keep in mind to build the best integration possible.
Regardless of the purpose of your Drupal site, it is important that the site be reliably available and performant for your users. For those of us with limited resources at our disposal it isn’t feasible to scale up hardware indefinitely. Thankfully, Drupal provides us with a number of tools in core, and even more in the contrib community, that make caching accessible to even the least technical amongst us. Let’s walk through the basics of the Drupal cache and discuss the importance of properly configuring cache with the goal of avoiding common missteps.
Composer, Drush, Git, and Configuration Management all work together to make the Drupal 8 site development and management process faster, more efficient, and less error prone. With the right knowledge of these tools, site-building and management can become a lot simpler.
This webinar will cover the advanced site-building tools and techniques available to Drupal 8 site-builders. We’ll focus on how to build and maintain a site with Composer, as well as how to use Configuration Management to push changes from a local environment to a production one. Other topics will include:
Welcome to my series of blogs about debugging in Drupal 8.
The reason why I decided to create this series is that a lot of Drupalists use ”legacy” ways of non-interactive debugging based on php-native commands like
debug_print_backtrace() or commands provided by contributed modules or themes like
dump() inside of twig templates.
tl;dr: Acquia Pipelines lets you automate building, testing, and deploying sites on Acquia Cloud using tools like Composer, Sass, and Behat.
The Drupal community hit a huge milestone with the release of Drupal 8.0. One of the biggest changes is that this version can now significantly improve with each feature release twice a year under the new “semantic versioning” system. With Drupal 8.2, scheduled to release in October, comes some exciting new additions.
In this webinar, Angie “webchick” Byron and Gábor Hojtsy will provide an overview and status update on the Drupal 8 strategic initiatives announced at DrupalCon New Orleans. Topics will include:
As Amazon Web Services has grown into the vast platform that it is today, it has created many opportunities for innovation: in how we interact with the products and how we fit all the pieces togeth
Module development in Drupal 8 is drastically different from Drupal 7 and previous versions of Drupal. The changes in Drupal 8 can appear daunting at first, but after you learn a few tricks you’ll be surprised by how much you can do with so little code.
A conversation from DrupalCon Asia DrupalCon Mumbai 2016 with members of Acquia's Pune, India office: Prassad Shirgaonkar, Prassad Gogate, Prafful Nagwani, and Jeffrey A.
