Planet Drupal - 19 January 2017 - 12:56am
Entity browser feature freeze will happen in two weeks

Today I released Entity browser 8.x-1.0-beta4. Release includes some nice features; specially Improved MultiStep selection display, which vastly improves editorial experience.

This is also the last release before the feature freeze, which will happen on February 3rd 2017. No new features will be accepted after that day until 8.x-1.0 is released. Feature requests that are not breaking backward compatibility will be accepted after that.

Huge thanks to all contributors. It has been an interesting and very rewarding ride!

Lullabot: Building Views Query Plugins for Drupal 8, Part 3

Planet Drupal - 18 January 2017 - 5:39pm

Welcome to the third part of our series on writing Views query plugins. In part 1, we talked about the planning work that should precede coding. In part 2, we covered the basics of actually writing a query plugin. In this final chapter, we will investigate some enhancements to make your plugin more polished and flexible.

Exposing configuration options

Allow Site Admins to set their preferred units: metric or imperial.

Most Fitbit endpoints accept an option to set the units the response is returned in. If you are Canadian like me, you know that metric is preferable, but it’s also in our nature to be be nice, so we should expose a configuration option to allow our American friends to show data in their anachronistic imperial units. (I jest, love you guys!)

Exposing configuration options for a query plugin is done in two parts. First, build the UI and, second, make use of the stored configuration. In our query plugin class, we’ll implement two methods to help us create the UI, defineOptions and buildOptionsForm :

/** * {@inheritdoc} */ protected function defineOptions() { $options = parent::defineOptions(); $options['accept_lang'] = array( 'default' => NULL, ); return $options; } /** * {@inheritdoc} */ public function buildOptionsForm(&$form, FormStateInterface $form_state) { parent::buildOptionsForm($form, $form_state); $form['accept_lang'] = [ '#type' => 'select', '#options' => [ '' => $this->t('Metric'), 'en_US' => $this->t('US'), 'en_GB' => $this->t('UK'), ], '#title' => $this->t('Unit system'), '#default_value' => $this->options['accept_lang'], '#description' => $this->t('Set the unit system to use for Fitbit API requests.'), ]; }

With this done, we should see our configuration options in the Views UI under Advanced > Query settings.

undefined

However, it won’t work because we’re not actually using the stored configuration yet. To do that, we’ll add to our execute method in our query plugin:

/** * {@inheritdoc} */ public function execute(ViewExecutable $view) { // Set the units according to the setting on the view. if (!empty($this->options['accept_lang'])) { $this->fitbitClient->setAcceptLang($this->options['accept_lang']); } // Clip... }

Query plugin options are available via $this->options, which Drupal provides as part of the QueryPluginBase class that our Views plugin is extending. We use the stored value, together with a method on the Fitbit client service to set the preferred units for all subsequent API requests: $this->fitbitClient->setAcceptLang($this->options['accept_lang']); . With that, site admininstrators can set their preferred units, and the result set will reflect that choice. Since this is Views and we’ve exposed height as a numeric field, Views core gives us a nice way to format the data and suffix it with units so we end up with a polished result. Just edit the field options.

undefined Field plugin options

Adding options to customize the appearance of the avatar field.

Views also allows us to have custom options for our field plugins. In the last article, we set up a field plugin for avatar which uses the avatar URI from the API response and renders it as an <img> tag. Fitbit’s API actually provides two avatar size options and it would be great to leave it to the site administrator to decide which size to render. We’ll use field plugin options to do that.

As with query plugins, exposing configuration options for a field plugin follows the same two parts, with one small addition. In our query plugin class, we’ll implement two methods, defineOptions and buildOptionsForm , to build the UI:

/** * {@inheritdoc} */ protected function defineOptions() { $options = parent::defineOptions(); $options['avatar_size'] = ['default' => 'avatar']; return $options; } /** * {@inheritdoc} */ public function buildOptionsForm(&$form, FormStateInterface $form_state) { $form['avatar_size'] = [ '#type' => 'select', '#title' => $this->t('Image size'), '#options' => [ 'avatar' => $this->t('Default (100px)'), 'avatar150' => $this->t('Medium (150px)'), ], '#default_value' => $this->options['avatar_size'], '#description' => $this->t('Choose the size avatar you would like to use.'), ]; parent::buildOptionsForm($form, $form_state); }

This should be fairly self explanatory; we’re defining a form element for the UI and, once saved, the configuration option will be stored in $this->options['avatar_size'] . The small addition I referred to earlier lies within the query plugin. Before, we were only passing along the single value for avatar. Now that the site administrator has the option, we’ll want to make sure both values for avatar are passed along in the Views result. We do that, in the query plugins execute method like so:

$row['avatar'] = [ 'avatar' => $data['avatar'], 'avatar150' => $data['avatar150'], ];

Instead of a flat value, we’re setting ‘avatar’ to an array with both values for avatar from the API response. Then, back in the field plugin, in the render method, we take care to use the appropriate size avatar according to the option selected:

/** * {@inheritdoc} */ public function render(ResultRow $values) { $avatar = $this->getValue($values); if ($avatar) { return [ '#theme' => 'image', '#uri' => $avatar[$this->options['avatar_size']], '#alt' => $this->t('Avatar'), ]; } }

We simply call $this->getValue($values), which is able to pull out the value we want from the ResultRow object. The render method receives a ResultRow object that has all of the data for the row. FieldPluginBase has a getValue method which we can access since we are extending FieldPluginBase . With that done, we can now click on the avatar field in the Views UI and set the desired image size:

undefined Filter plugins

Filtering the leaderboard by user id.

What if we wanted to limit the result to only a particular user? Say we wanted to show a user's Fitbit details on their Drupal user profile page. For that, we’d need to filter the result set by a user id. To make that happen, we need a Views filter plugin. The first step is to define the field to filter on in hook_views_data():

/** * Implements hook_views_data(). */ function fitbit_views_example_views_data() { // Base data and other field definitions... $data['fitbit_profile']['uid'] = [ 'title' => t('User id'), 'help' => t('Drupal user id, not to be confused with Fitbit profile id.'), 'field' => [ 'id' => 'standard', ], 'filter' => [ 'id' => 'fitbit_uid', ], ]; return $data; }

The part we are most concerned with here is the ‘filter’ key. Its value is an associative array with one key ‘id’, which we set to the name of the filter plugin we’re going to create. Also, note the ‘field’ key, which makes the Drupal user id available as a field in the Views UI. It doesn’t hurt to add it, and it also illustrates how plugins related to a certain field (e.g. field, filter, and others like relationship and argument) are all defined in the same array in hook_views_data(). So, for the next step, we’ll create this file: fitbit_views_example/src/Plugin/views/filter/Uid.php 

<?php namespace Drupal\fitbit_views_example\Plugin\views\filter; /** * Simple filter to handle filtering Fitbit results by uid. * @ViewsFilter("fitbit_uid") */ class Uid extends FilterPluginBase { }

So far, this is typical Drupal 8 plugin scaffolding code. The file is placed in the right folder for the plugin type. The namespace follows PSR-4 naming. The annotation for the plugin type assigns an id to our plugin. Finally, we extend the base class provided by Views for the plugin type. Now let’s look at the specifics required for our filter plugin implementation:

class Uid extends FilterPluginBase { public $no_operator = TRUE; /** * {@inheritdoc} */ protected function valueForm(&$form, FormStateInterface $form_state) { $form['value'] = [ '#type' => 'textfield', '#title' => $this->t('Value'), '#size' => 30, '#default_value' => $this->value, ]; } }

$no_operator = TRUE tells Views that we are not interested in the site administrators having an option to select an operator. In our case, we’ll keep things simple and always assume '='. You could, of course, allow for choice of operators if your remote service supports it. The key component here is the valueForm method. In it, we need to set an appropriate Form API element for the ‘value’ key of the $form array passed as the first argument. The name ‘value’ is important as the base class expects this key to work. The form element that you return is used in a couple of places. It’s used in the Views UI for when the site administrator is setting up a filter. It’s also used if the filter is exposed, rendered in the exposed filters form with the view itself. That’s it for the plugin implementation.  At this point we can add the filter in the Views UI:

undefined

The last step adjusts our query plugin to be able to handle and make use of the filter. The first thing we’ll need to do is implement an addWhere method on the query plugin class:

public function addWhere($group, $field, $value = NULL, $operator = NULL) { // Ensure all variants of 0 are actually 0. Thus '', 0 and NULL are all // the default group. if (empty($group)) { $group = 0; } // Check for a group. if (!isset($this->where[$group])) { $this->setWhereGroup('AND', $group); } $this->where[$group]['conditions'][] = [ 'field' => $field, 'value' => $value, 'operator' => $operator, ]; }

Here, especially, we can see Views’ biases to SQL rear its head. The method name, addWhere, is odd from our perspective of querying a remote service. There is no notion of a WHERE clause present in the Fitbit API. Further, Views supports grouping filters, and logical operators within each group. Here again, the remote service we are using has no notion of this. It’s possible the remote service your implementing does in which case the flexibility Views affords is amazing. In our case it’s overkill, but I’ve copied core Views implementation for the SQL query plugin, so we’ll be able to handle everything that the Views UI allows for setting up filters. The final step is adjusting the execute method on our query plugin to incorporate the filter into the call to the Fitbit API:

/** * {@inheritdoc} */ public function execute(ViewExecutable $view) { // Clip ... if (isset($this->where)) { foreach ($this->where as $where_group => $where) { foreach ($where['conditions'] as $condition) { // Remove dot from beginning of the string. $field_name = ltrim($condition['field'], '.'); $filters[$field_name] = $condition['value']; } } } // We currently only support uid, ignore any other filters that may be // configured. $uid = isset($filters['uid']) ? $filters['uid'] : NULL; if ($access_tokens = $this->fitbitAccessTokenManager->loadMultipleAccessToken([$uid])) { // Query remote API and return results ... } }

Here, we’re looping through any filters that have been configured on the view and grabbing their values. We then ignore any other filter that may have been configured on the view, since we’re only supporting uid for now and pass it along to $this->fitbitAccessTokenManager->loadMultipleAccessToken([$uid]), which will limit the access tokens we get back to just the uid set and only show us results for the corresponding user.

Often, as was the case on a recent client project, the filters that you set up will actually get passed along in the remote API request. The Fitbit API is a bit odd in this regard in that most endpoints only return data for a single user anyway, so there is no filtering that makes sense.

That’s it! After all that work, we can set up a filter by uid to limit the results to a single user.

Wrap up

We did it, at long last, we’ve produced a custom Fitbit leaderboard, which might look something like this:

undefined

Of course this is just stock Drupal 8 with the Fitbit module installed and configured, but it’s Views and we all know how to customize the look and feel of Views, so make it pretty to your heart's content.

While we've looked at a lot of code, I don't think that any of it has been horribly complicated. It's mostly a matter of knowing what to put where, with a healthy dose of planning to make sure our data fits into the Views paradigm properly. In summary, the steps are:

  1. Make a plan of attack, taking into account the data you're retrieving and the way Views expects to use it.

  2. Create field handlers for your data as necessary.

  3. Write remote queries to retrieve your data and store it in rows in the view object.

  4. Write filter plugins as necessary to narrow the result set.

There's a lot of work in those steps, but after running through it a couple times the architecture makes a lot of sense.

Get the code!

The code from this article can be found in the Fitbit module on drupal.org. It consists of a base module to handle application setup, authentication and access token storage and two sub-modules for Views integration. The first is fitbit_views_example, which I created specifically for this article series. You’ll find all the code we went through in there. The other one, fitbit_views is a more fully featured and slightly more complex version, including spanning multiple API endpoints with relationship plugins. You should use fitbit_views if your intending on using this functionality on your Drupal site. Feel free to file issues and patches!

Phew, that was a lot. Thanks for sticking with me through it all. Special thanks to Greg Dunlap for trusting me with the reboot of his original series, which has guided me through my own Views query plugin implementations. Thanks also to the Fitbit module maintainer, Matt Klein, who was kind enough to grant me co-maintainer rights on the project.

Mike Crittenden: Drupal + Cloud9

Planet Drupal - 17 January 2017 - 2:26pm
Drupal + Cloud9

Cloud9 is an IDE and development environment in the cloud. Yeah yeah, buzzwords buzzwords, but what does this really mean?

Let's dig in a bit, starting with the positives.

What I Like

I've been using it heavily for a few months now, and here are the features that stand out to me. 

Workspaces

C9 gives you "workspaces", each of which is a complete Ubuntu-based environment (i.e., a Docker container behind the scenes). This means that you can install stuff, use sudo, change config, etc. You can create and delete workspaces as you please.

You can really go to town on these things in pretty much any way that is useful. 

Workspace cloning

C9 also lets you clone workspaces to create new ones. Cloning is super fast - usually around 30 seconds for me from start to finish. This means I can do things like having a stock "Drupal" workspace that has all the tools and config that I like to have for Drupal projects, which I just clone when setting up a new Drupal site. There are other cool possibilities here too, which I'll get to shortly.

Sure, theoretically Vagrant and friends let you do this already for local environments, but the speed and ease that C9 brings to this process is unmatched compared to anything I've seen.

Out of the box debugging (for Node.js, PHP, Go, and C++)

Interactive debugging is already there, waiting for you. In PHP for example, you just click the little "bug" icon before running your app, and then set a breakpoint wherever you want. No messing with xdebug config or path mappings or exposing ports, none of that. Just click and you're done.

This is especially nice for me on the Node.js side, since I've never learned how to set up a Node debugger and don't particularly want to.

Custom runners

Cloud9 environments come with some pre-configured "runners", which are basically commands that you can run by clicking a button, and have their output stuck into their own tabs. For example, starting the app typically means starting the "Apache" runner to get the server running, which will throw Apache logs into the output of that tab. 

That's all fine, but it gets more interesting when you create custom runners. You can drop in a name and command and some configuration such as the current directory, and then you have a nice little command runner waiting to be clicked. I like this for things like "grunt watch" which watches for Sass updates, but it's even more useful for commands with hard to remember names, so that you can kind of abstract that away. It's like shell aliases on steroids, in a way.

Performance

Cloud9 is surprisingly quick given that it's a pretty bulky web app. I don't have an insanely powerful laptop or anything, and I found the Cloud9 IDE to be responsive enough that I never really saw any noticeable slowness, which is the goal after all.

What I don't like No VPNs

Due to the way Cloud9 is built, it can't really connect through an existing VPN. So if you're trying to work on a site that is hidden behind a VPN, then it might be test to avoid Cloud9 for that project.

IDE limitations

The C9 IDE is ok, but not good, and definitely not great. If PHPStorm is a 9/10 in terms of IDE functionality, then Cloud9 is more like a 4 or a 5. It's a pretty decent text editor, but a pretty lame IDE.

For example, it's missing features like:

  • Jumping directly to a function definition from somewhere that function is called
  • Auto-generating block comments with @params, etc., based on function code
  • Function parameter hinting as you type
  • Viewing all usages of a given function
  • Project-wide autocompletion that works smartly and consistently
Restricted workspace cloning

You can only clone your own workspace - you can't clone someone else's. This means that it's basically impossible to have a setup where a tech lead manages a "pristine" project workspace which everyone else can clone whenever they need to start fresh, or when new people are ramped on. I love the sound of that workflow, and it's disappointing that it isn't allowed.

Credit card required for signup

You can't sign up to C9 without entering your credit card info, even for the free accounts. This isn't the end of the world for me or possibly for you, but it can be a real bummer when you want to give someone on your team access to your codebase to do some pair programming. The "how much do I really want this?" factor kicks into high gear when you're asked to pull out your credit card.

Use cases Open source work

C9 is great for doing open source work. It gives you the ability to share your code or your environment when anyone just by sending a link,  which can help a lot when collaborating on something remotely that is only on your local environment.

Plus, with workspaces being so cheap and powerful, you can have a separate workspace for each open source project that you maintain. That way, you always have an environment ready to be worked on for everything, and you never have to wonder if that environment you build 6 months ago for module X is still running and working.

Demos

Creating a workspace specifically for a demo (or a prototype or anything else temporary that you want to show other people) can be really nice. It even gives you a URL to share with people so they can try out your demo with their own two hands.

This lets you work on your demo in a clean, empty environment, which can just be deleted when you're done. 

Random fiddling around

You know that thing where there's a new tool or app or whatever that you want to try installing, but you don't want to worry about adding more dependencies or possibly bringing in a different version of a dependency that will break something else? 

The speed with which you can spin up C9 workspaces is great here. Create a workspace in a few seconds, do whatever you want, and delete it. That way you never have to worry about leaving any remnants of your random tinkering on your main computer.

Pair programming

One of the banner features of C9 is the ability to live-edit code along with other people, and see each other's updates in real time. If you ever pair program, then this is basically the dream. It sure beats screen sharing over a Google Hangout. 

Debugging

The out of the box debugger support kind of automatically makes "debugging" a good use case for Cloud9. The fact that you have a full Ubuntu environment means that you can usually change whatever you need to change to replicate your prod setup, and the built in debugger can take it from there to help you find your bug.

Again, you can always just use Docker yourself to replicate an environment and install Xdebug, but this is just so much easier.

Regular old development

If you can live without advanced IDE features, and you don't need a VPN to access anything, then you can really do most of your regular everyday development on C9. That way you have cheap workspaces and easy debugging and shareable URLs for everything that you work on.

Tips

Finally, here are some tips for getting the most out of Cloud9, especially if you're using it for Drupal.

1. Start each workspace from a starter instance that has all the tools you need

For example, create a "Drupal" starter workspace that has Drush, Drupal Console, Apache config, git aliases, XHprof (here are installation instructions), etc. Then, whenever you spin up a new site, just clone that workspace.

2. Create per-ticket workspaces

Taking workspace cloning to the next level, you can just create a stock workspace for your project which you never actually touch except to keep it up to date. Then just clone it every time you start work on a new ticket. That way you can have completely separate environments for unrelated workstreams, and you never have to worry about clobbering data or whatnot when switching back and forth. Plus, that ticket you worked on 3 weeks ago will still have a working environment to go back to when it fails QA and needs a fix.

3. Make the keybindings match your main editor/IDE

Cloud9 has fully configurable keybindings for just about everything. This means that you can make C9 keyboard shortcuts match the ones you're already used to from your normal editor/IDE. That way it's really easy to switch back and forth. There are even Vim and Emacs modes!

4. Create custom runners for all the things

Think of all the commands you run on a regular basis. Things like "grunt watch" or "drush cc all" or "drush updb -y && drush fra -y", etc. Put all of those things in custom runners, so you can just click a button to watch them run in their own tab. This is especially useful for complex commands that you're likely to forget.

5. Go crazy with the layout

C9 lets you drag and drop tabs to dock to the left or right or bottom, and resize however you want. You can have a terminal on the right and server logs at the bottom, or keep them all in tabs in the same place. It's up to you. 

6. Don't ignore the project search (and replace)

If you're like me then you might be tempted to install The Silver Searcher or Ack or just use grep to search your codebase. Before you do that, at least give C9's code search a try. It's fast, it supports regex, and it gives you lots of options about where you want to search. It's surprisingly robust, so give it a shot.

The end

Overall I think Cloud9 is really pretty great for what it is. It's lacking some IDE features and it suffers a bit unavoidably just based on the fact that it's cloud based, but it also solves a lot of real world problems that make up for all that in most cases.

I'm using it for a pretty big chunk of my day to day development nowadays, and it's saved me plenty of headaches.

Do you have any concerns or questions? Feel free to comment below if so. I'm curious to hear about the types of things holding other people back from using it.
