In the first installment of this blog series, we set up a workflow that allows us both to transpile arbitrary ES6 into JavaScript legible to all modern browsers and to bundle that JavaScript into browser-ready assets. We also explored how working with variable scope has improved in ES6 and working with let and const statements. In this second installment, we’ll be digging deeper into assigning values to variables as well as the spread (or rest) operator.

For many Drupal developers, JavaScript can sometimes feel like an uncharted wilderness. Fortunately, JavaScript has entered a new renaissance since the release of open-source projects like V8 and Node.js, and frameworks like Angular, Ember, and React are rapidly gaining steam. The advent of ECMAScript, a codified specification for JavaScript, has ushered in a new era of innovation in the language, culminating in the new modern version of JavaScript: ES6.

How Acquia distills tens of thousands of hours of client work into products and open source tools for Drupal. Drupal gets better when companies, organizations, and individuals build or fix something they need and then share it with the rest of us. Our community becomes better, stronger, and smarter when others take it upon themselves to make a positive difference contributing their knowledge, time, and energy to Drupal. Acquia is proud to play a part, alongside thousands of others, in making tomorrow’s Drupal better than today’s.

Among the most crucial steps in architecting decoupled Drupal-backed applications is to bridge the gap between Drupal and the designated front end so that the latter can receive and manipulate data on the Drupal data repository via API calls. For some frameworks, this can be a rather tedious exercise in navigating the server-side APIs and crafting the correct requests on the client side. Luckily, with JSON API now proposed as a core experimental module for Drupal 8, the tightrope walk between Drupal and Ember is about to become more of a cinch.

For a recent project, I needed to use the popular Bootstrap theme, using the Sass starterkit for easy CSS management.

The project is hosted on Acquia Cloud, and the quickest way to start a new Drupal project that deploys to Acquia Cloud is to use BLT (a tool for Building, Testing, and Launching Drupal sites). BLT is an automation framework for running and building Drupal sites locally (it even integrates with Drupal VM!), and it is able to test, build, and deploy code on Acquia Cloud.

With Acquia Lightning, site-builders or developers can build an authoring experience from the ground up in only a few hours.

Think of Acquia Lightning as “Drupal Core with afterburners.”

Development tasks that used to take days or weeks are condensed to a matter of minutes.
