Overheid.nl Web Metadata Standaard (OWMS) Integration

New Drupal Modules - 17 January 2018 - 4:16am

The De Overheid.nl Web Metadata Standaard (OWMS) is a Dutch standard for information on the internet about the Dutch government. By using this standard, different websites can link their information in a coherent way.

Currently the module provides the following functionality:

- Saving and automatically updating a specific list of values provided by OWMS into configuration entities.
- Exposing the values of those lists in a custom 'OWMS' field.
- Detecting deprecated values used on the website.

Agiledrop.com Blog: AGILEDROP: An ever-expanding field of opportunities for Drupal

Planet Drupal - 16 January 2018 - 7:15pm
There were five pieces altogether written about ambitious Drupal experiences. Each of them focused on a single subject of what constitutes an ambitious digital experience. In the first part of the series, I did my best to explain what ambitious digital experiences mean. The main conclusion, at least in my opinion, is that experience is much more than just mere content. And ambitious digital experiences should come as natural and intuitive as possible. And be focused on the customers, on the users.    Provide valuable and unique digital experiences I have tried to define the term customer… READ MORE

If you save a node (or any other entity) on which you've removed a reference to a paragraph entity, the paragraph entity will be deleted.

If you don't want to delete orphaned paragraphs, or if you're re-using paragraphs among different entities, then don't install this module.

Evolving Web: Drupal 8 Modules We ♥ for 2018

Planet Drupal - 16 January 2018 - 11:00am

With so many shiny new Drupal 8 modules emerging this year, we were hard pressed to pick our recommendations for 2018. It came down to asking ourselves: which modules are we excited about implementing in 2018… the ones that will make our projects better, faster, smarter brighter? Read on for our list of Drupal 8 modules we're excited about.

Configuration Split

The Drupal Configuration Split module makes Drupal 8 configuration management more customizable. This means you can set up some configurations that can be edited on the live site, without interfering with your configuration management workflow. Instead of importing and exporting the whole set of a site’s configuration, the module enables you to define sets of configuration to export to different directories that automatically merge again when they are imported.

Content Workflow

If you’ve shied away from implementing complicated workflows in the past, you’ll enjoy how the Content Workflow module makes it easy to set up a simple workflow. This core module enables you to streamline the content publication process by defining states for content (such as draft, unpublished and published) and then manage permissions around these states.

Deploy

The Deploy content staging module makes it easier to stage and preview content for a Drupal site. It’s often used to deploy content from one Drupal site to another. Redesigned for Drupal 8, the new version is based on the Multiversion and Replication modules, making it more efficient and flexible.

Drupal Commerce

The new full release of Drupal Commerce has us very excited to start building ecommerce sites in Drupal 8. Fully rebuilt for Drupal 8, the new Drupal Commerce module doesn’t presume a specific ecommerce business model, enabling developers to customize the module to suit a merchant’s needs.

JSON API

The JSON API module formats your JSON requests and responses to make them compliant with the JSON API Specification. This module is the key to setting up Drupal as a backend so you can implement the font-end with React or your front-end platform of choice.

Schema.org Metatag

Ramp up your SEO with structured data that helps Google categorize and display your pages. The Schema.org Metatag module allows you to add and validate Schema.org structured data as JASON LD, one of Google’s preferred data formats.

UI Patterns

If you’re looking for a way to implement an ‘atomic design’ in Drupal the Drupal UI Patterns project is a nice option. It consists of six modules that allow you to define and expose UI patterns as Drupal plugins. You can use them as drop-in templates for all entity types — paragraphs, views, field groups and more.

Webform

The Drupal webform module has a new release candidate for Drupal 8. A ton of work has been put into the module; it’s like a whole form-building application inside your Drupal site. Quickly integrate forms into any Drupal 8 website. enables you to build, publish and duplicate webforms. You can also manage and download submissions, and send confirmations to users.

Which Drupal 8 modules are doing it for you?

We’d love to hear about which Drupal 8 modules your team is excited about. Leave us a comment.

DrupalEasy: What "The Last Jedi" can teach us about learning Drupal

Planet Drupal - 16 January 2018 - 5:38am

Spoiler alert! If you haven't seen “The Last Jedi” yet, this blog post includes what can be considered a minor spoiler. I've seen the movie a few times now (I saw the original Star Wars movie when I was 7 years old, and I've been hooked ever since), and I've been able to fully indoctrinate at least one of my kids in my love for the series. When we first saw the movie on opening night, there was a line of dialog that resonated with me more than usual - I've been thinking about that line for over a month now and have figured out how to relate my love of Star Wars with my obsession for teaching Drupal. 

"The Greatest Teacher, Failure Is"

There's a point in the movie when Yoda is speaking to another character and utters this line. As a former mechanical/aerospace engineering college adjunct professor and a current Drupal trainer, I've always believed that for a lesson to truly take hold, there has to be a little bit of pain - not physical pain, but rather the kind of pain that comes from doing something incorrectly (often numerous times) before realizing the proper way of doing something that leads to a more satisfying, correct (and often efficient) result. As usual, I didn't have the proper words to describe it - thanks to Yoda, I do now.

As I look back at my eleven years in the Drupal community, I can point to more things that I care to admit that I didn't do correctly the first time. If I narrow that list to technical mistakes, it becomes very clear that many of the mistakes I've made have had a direct impact on the curriculum I've written for our various training classes.

As we gear up to teach Mastering Professional Development Workflows with Pantheon for the second time, allow me to share some of the failures I've had in the past and how they've had a direct result on the curriculum for this 6-week class.

  1. "Everything is a content type" - this is something I learned only by repeatedly designing the information architecture for various sites that ended up not being able to completely fulfill all the project's requirements. Understanding the differences between various kinds of entities is key to building a sustainable site that meets 100% of a project's requirements.
  2. "Core search is fine" - I'm embarrassed to say how late I was to get on board the Search API train. Being able to provide faceted search to clients of all sizes is a huge win.
  3. "I don't need the command line" - looking back at the first half-ish of my Drupal career, I used Drush only when absolutely necessary. Not learning basic command line tools until well into Drupal 7 definitely held me back. With Drupal 8, if you want to be a professional Drupal developer, there is no way to avoid it. Luckily, using command line tools like Composer, Drush, and Drupal Console are not only "the right thing to do", but also save time. 
  4. "MAMP is fine" - I was late to the party in moving my local development environment from MAMP and Acquia Dev Desktop to a Docker-based solution. I had played around a bit with virtualized solutions, but once you get accustomed to a professional-grade, modern, Docker-based solution, you'll never go back.

While I could list additional examples (multi-branch development, configuration management, display modes) of previous failures - or even one or two that I feel like I'm currently failing (test-driven development), the point is that sometimes it is necessary to fail in order to really understand the value of a success. 

DrupalEasy's 6-week live, online Mastering Professional Development Workflows with Pantheon, not coincidentally, addresses the failures listed above. The next session begins on February 27, 2018.  

The next session (our 11th!) of our 12-week, live, online more-introductory-focused Drupal Career Online begins March 26, 2018.
