Although JSON Web Tokens (JWT) is a younger specification than its more well-established cousin, OAuth 2.0 Bearer Token authentication, JWT has been adopted by quite a few in the Drupal community due to its relative simplicity. In this installment, we explore JSON Web Tokens and how this authentication mechanism can benefit your decoupled Drupal architecture.
Revered management thinker Peter Drucker once wrote, “If you can’t replicate something because you don’t understand it, then it really hasn’t been invented; it’s only been done.” In many ways content modeling in Drupal has been done without being invented. For this reason, we’re developing a discipline for content modeling at Acquia. It’s drastically reducing both costs and defect rates for us.
Easy-to-guess passwords are all too often the means by which intruders gain unauthorised access.
One of the common issues I've noticed when working with customers is the tendency to treat non-production environments, such as dev or stage, as less important with respect to security.
This is understandable since these environments are effectively disposable and could be rebuilt from production at any time. However an important consideration that should be taken into account is what data lives in these environments.

The word "community" comes from the Latin communis, which means "what is common and shared by many individuals." From the Drupal perspective, the community is nothing more than a group of
If you’re coming to DrupalCon Baltimore and you’re curious about Acquia, there are a couple of ways to meet the company and see what we’re about beyond the marketing and sales efforts that get directed at potential clients. One great way is to come to our sessions!
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.
Lots of people think that template engines like Twig cannot be interactively debugged. I heard this several times as an argument against template engine, and for using legacy php processing like phptemplate (standard in Drupal 7).
Well, it’s not entirely true.
Welcome to Post #2 in my series about debugging in Drupal 8.
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.
