Permanent Cache Bin

New Drupal Modules - 11 August 2017 - 8:50pm

At times we need to cache some values which are not related to Drupal config or data but are coming from external systems and which don't really need to be deleted when clearing (rebuilding) Drupal cache.

This module provides a way to use Drupal cache but still keep it separate from drush cr.

Learning by Doing: Palantir’s Internship Program brandt Fri, 08/11/2017 - 10:44 Alex Brandt Aug 14, 2017

Our interns bring fresh new perspective to our team.

In this post we will cover...

There are many different facets of “the Palantir way,” but one principle that sticks out the most is the encouragement to be continuously learning. As a company, we are strong advocates for the concept of “learning by doing,” which is why we’ve had a summer internship program going for years. We believe paid internship opportunities are essential to figuring out what career path is best for you, and they can be beneficial for both the company and the intern.

Our interns are provided the opportunity to see what it’s like to work on real projects with a development team while getting exposure to working through a process with clients. They gain experience using tools like Github and JIRA, and a deeper understanding of responsive design, open source software, and Agile development.

We’ve found that our interns bring huge value with new perspective to our team. They give other Palantiri an opportunity to work on mentorship, and our buddy system means we gain a quick understanding of our interns’ existing skills, so we can help them grow that skillset more effectively.

The added bonus of our internship program is that both sides get to leave with an understanding of whether or not it’s a good fit. Being a remote-first company, it’s nice for our interns to be able to test drive remote work and see if it works for them.

We’ve had such tremendous success in hiring our interns as full-time employees (you might be familiar with Ashley, Kelsey, Patrick, and Matt), that we’ve recently decided to expand our program beyond summer to accommodate the awesome candidates that have extended availability.

Dutch Open Projects: Content Security Policy and Drupal

Planet Drupal - 11 August 2017 - 5:19am
What is CSP?

Content Security Policy – or CSP – is a security feature of modern browsers. Browsers will ignore data from domains that are not cleared in the CSP http-response header. For instance if you embed a YouTube movie on a webpage and the domain is not whitelisted in the CSP header, then the movie will not be loaded. All traffic from youtube.com will be blocked and the movie cannot be displayed.

Login by IP

New Drupal Modules - 11 August 2017 - 4:28am

Login by IP automatically logs in any enabled user by their IP address. It works by:
Getting the IP for the current visitor - it uses the high availability service from https://www.ipify.org
It then checks if a user account is assigned to current client IP
Login the user

All of it through jQuery calls to the backend of Drupal so there’s no actual slowness to the visitor. The process is a bit more involved but that’s the gist of it.

Anubavam LLC: PHP 7 can help improve Drupal site performance

Planet Drupal - 11 August 2017 - 3:38am
PHP 7 can help improve Drupal site performance

Drupal is PHP 7-ready and sites that run many contrib modules, or particularly memory-intensive ones, will need more memory requirements. Optimizing Drupal website performance with PHP 7 version will boost the overall page speed. 

PHP 7 was released in December 2015 and offers high performance, huge load capacity and asynchronous programming support  for online applications. According to the latest study, PHP 7 is twice as fast as PHP 5.6 and reduces memory usage.

Why this is the right time to move to PHP 7

Drupal 7 core officially supports PHP 5.2.5 or higher  However, PHP 7 introduces backward incompatible changes which may need to be addressed in contributed or custom modules and themes. While some Drupal 7 sites may run on minimum of PHP versions, you can move to Drupal 8 with PHP 7 support to enhance the performance of the site.

Drupal 8 officially supports 200+ new features and improved functionalities, and upgrading to PHP 7 brings a lot of improvements and delivers high performance Drupal site, whether you are a website owner or a Drupal developer

Drupal core's automated test suite is now fully passing on a variety of environments where there were previously some failures (PHP 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, and 7). Several bugs affecting those versions were fixed as well. These PHP versions are officially supported by Drupal 7 and recommended for use where possible.

Anecdotal evidence from a variety of users suggests that Drupal 7 can be successfully used on PHP 7, both before and after the 7.50 release. 

A slow website load time impacts visitors, overall user experience, and the bottom line. With the improved speed enhancements of Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 with PHP 7, your user engagement and experience will increase and less likely they will leave your website

Chen Hui Jing: Drupal 7 versus Drupal 8

Planet Drupal - 10 August 2017 - 5:00pm

I’ve recently embarked on my first official Drupal 8 project, for Sinvict Technology (case study when the project launches), and it was interesting to see how certain things changed for the better, certain things stayed familiar and certain things seemed slightly worse off. I thought I’d write up some comparison notes between the two versions. This is my personal opinion based on my experiences. You should have your own opinion too.

Core is so much better

I really like the improvements made to core for Drupal 8. Making views part of core was a great idea, as was making the date field core as well. I felt the organisation of files in the new folder structure was more intuitive...

PreviousNext: Using Composer to debug issues updating Drupal core

Planet Drupal - 10 August 2017 - 3:33pm
Share:

This week whilst trying to update one of our projects to the latest version of Drupal 8 core, we had some issues.

We use Composer to manage our dependencies, modules etc, and on this particular occasion, things weren't straightforward.

In order to solve it, we had to use some of the lesser known features of Composer, so decided to share.

by lee.rowlands / 11 August 2017 The problem

So updating Drupal core with composer is normally pretty simple. And on this occasion, we had no reason to suspect it would be anything different.

Normally we'd just run

composer update "drupal/core" --with-dependencies

But this time, nothing happened.

So we checked that there was a newer version available

composer show -a "drupal/core"

And sure enough, we can see 8.3.6 in the available versions.

Time to dig deeper.

The why

Luckily, composer will tell you why it won't install something.

composer why-not "drupal/core:8.3.6"

Which yielded

drupal/core 8.3.6 conflicts drush/drush (<8.1.10)

Aha, so drush is the issue.

So maybe we just update both

composer update "drupal/core" "drush/drush"

Nope.

Digging deeper

So after trying a few different combinations of version constraints etc, we decided to remove drush, update and then add it back.

composer remove --dev "drush/drush"

Which worked.

composer update "drupal/core" --with-dependencies

Ok, nice, we now have Drupal 8.3.6

composer require --dev "drush/drush"

Nope.

Your requirements could not be resolved to an installable set of packages. Problem 1 - Installation request for drush/drush 8.1.12 -> satisfiable by drush/drush[8.1.12]. - Conclusion: remove phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock 3.2.2 - Conclusion: don't install phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock 3.2.2 - drush/drush 8.1.12 requires phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock ^2.0 -> satisfiable by phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock[2.0.0, 2.0.0a1, 2.0.0a2, 2.0.0a3, 2.0.1, 2.0.2, 2.0.3, 2.0.4, 2.0.5]. - Can only install one of: phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock[2.0.0, 3.2.2]. - Can only install one of: phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock[2.0.0a1, 3.2.2]. - Can only install one of: phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock[2.0.0a2, 3.2.2]. - Can only install one of: phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock[2.0.0a3, 3.2.2]. - Can only install one of: phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock[2.0.1, 3.2.2]. - Can only install one of: phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock[2.0.2, 3.2.2]. - Can only install one of: phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock[2.0.3, 3.2.2]. - Can only install one of: phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock[2.0.4, 3.2.2]. - Can only install one of: phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock[2.0.5, 3.2.2]. - Installation request for phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock (locked at 3.2.2) -> satisfiable by phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock[3.2.2]. Installation failed, reverting ./composer.json to its original content.

Hm, so we have a version of phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock in our lock file that is too high for drush.

composer why "phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock"

Yields

phpspec/prophecy v1.6.1 requires phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock (^2.0|^3.0.2)

Aha, so prophecy - but it allows either version .. but our lock file has pinned it to the 3.x branch

So lets force composer to downgrade that

composer require --dev "phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock:^2.0"

Now lets see if we can add drush back

composer require --dev "drush/drush"

Success!

Now all that remains is to clean up, because we don't really want to depend on phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock

composer remove --dev "phpdocumentor/reflection-docblock"

Done - quick - commit that lock file while you're winning!

Summary

So while it might be easy to curse Composer for not letting you upgrade, its actually doing exactly what you told it to do.

Your lock file has a pinned version, it is honoring that.

And in order to resolve it, Composer provides all the tools you need in the form of the why and the why-not commands.

Redirect Nodes

New Drupal Modules - 10 August 2017 - 1:04pm

Redirect Nodes provides a node content type specifically designed for only using as a menu item.

Why not just use core's menu module?

Cores menu module works well for most use cases, however it does not have many integration with access control modules, which makes restricting access to edit, manage and view menu items. Redirect nodes allow menu items to be added that get managed the same way other site content is, which means that all node access modules can be applied to this module.
