DrupalOnWindows: Drupal 8 Performance: Moving the service container cache away from the database

Planet Drupal - 24 October 2015 - 9:00pm
Language English

Drupal relies on pluggable cache backends to store cache data such as Memcache, Wincache, Database, etc. The default storage backend is the Database, but Drupal being a very cache intensive application (even more in Drupal 8) you want to get better performance by using faster backends that will yield lower latency and scale better.

Moving caching away from the database is done by replacing the caching services by ones that do not rely on the database. You define the services in your services.yml file and the binaries routing in settings.php:

Yonas Yanfa: Merging changes from GitHub back into

Planet Drupal - 24 October 2015 - 12:46am

I recently needed to merge the work of pjonckiere and geertvd from GitHub back into Here is how I did it using Git subtree merging:

# Clone the repository git clone --branch 8.x-1.x cd calendar # Make sure to set your name and email address git config "Yonas Yanfa" git config # Register the GitHub remote repository git remote add -f geertvd # Prepare for the later step to record the result as a merge git merge -s ours --no-commit geertvd/8.x-3.x # Read the GitHub branch into our branch git read-tree --reset -u geertvd/8.x-3.x # Commit the merge git commit -m 'Merge' # Pull in the GitHub commits git pull -s subtree geertvd 8.x-3.x # Verify that everything worked git log # Push the changes to git push

The neat thing is, if the developers that worked on GitHub use the same email address in GitHub and, Drupal will credit them with all the commits as if they originally made their commits in!
