GovHack is an annual hackathon that runs in Australia and New Zealand, where participants have 46 hours to create innovative new products using the open data published by government bodies. It started in 2007 with a single event held in Canberra, and has now grown to more than 40 locations and 3,000 participants.
Acquia was thrilled to provide support to GovHack for a 2nd year in 2017.Tags: acquia drupal planet

This week, I spoke with Chris Shattuck (chrisshattuck), who has been part of the Drupal community for 10 years, and has attended 7 DrupalCons.
One year ago we released the first public version of Config Split with the goal to simplify working with Drupal cores configuration management. The main motivation was to find a solution for having development modules in local environments and avoiding to deploy their configuration. To achieve this in the cleanest way possible we decided to interact with Drupal only during the configuration import and export operations by altering what is read from and written to the \Drupal\Core\Config\StorageInterface.
We quickly realized that this is a powerful way to interact with how Drupal sees the configuration to import and so we split off the code that does the heavy lifting into its own module and now Config Ignore and Config Role Split use the same mechanism to do their thing.
Config Split now has documentation pages you are welcome to contribute to and there will be a session at DrupalCon in Vienna in which I will show how it can be used to manage a sites configuration in interesting ways.
If you were an early adopter (pre beta3) but have not updated to a recent version, you will need to install Config Filter first or patch core. The workaround and legacy code has now been removed and the current code is going to be backwards compatible in the future. So if you use the APC class loader, make sure to clear the apc/apcu cache or you might get an error after updating.Tags: Drupal 8Drupal PlanetDrupalConConfiguration Management
DS Grid provides a field template plugin for display suite that lets you configure a multi-cardinality field into a grid.
Civic’s model allows for on-demand, secure and lower cost access to identity verification via the blockchain. Background and personal information verification checks may no longer need to be undertaken from the ground up every time a new institution or application requires one. Civic already has a working identity verification product that is available worldwide. Civic has won Best New Startup award at the K(NO)W Identity Conference 2017.
Embeds a Discord server widget in your site. Available as block as well as render template.
To embed the widget as a block, simply add the block to any region and input the relevant information. You will need access to the Discord's Server ID to input the field, which is available from inside the application.
To embed the widget programmatically, simply add it as a render array:
This module provides integration to SMS Framework for the Infobip gateway. It allows the users of SMS Framework module to send SMS using Infobip as a gateway.Requirements
To use this module:
Module allows to make an easely managing redirect after any content entity save.
Perfectly works in pair with Rabbit hole
This module provides base classes and functionality which other gateway plugin modules can extend to simplify creation of gateways
A module based on Web Page Archive that provides the ability to snapshot entire or partial Drupal configurations on a periodic basis.
This is still in early development.
Ryan Price and Mike Anello discuss the pros and cons of the Paragraphs module, including using it for layout and/or information architecture. Ryan takes the discussion in unexpected directions by bringing up Pattern Lab as a prototyping tool and his mysterious "Ace in the Hole" (which Mike feels is more like a Jack of spades). In addition, there's some discussion about a new-ish feature in the Migrate Plus module that is sure to make migration developers happy.Interview

This module allows actions and other executable plugins to be scheduled for execution at a future time.
It uses a content entity type, scheduled_executable, to store the details of the plugin to execute.
Scheduled executables (SE) can be queried, inspected, and deleted prior to execution. Furthermore, a SE can specify that it replaces, or may be replaced by other SEs that are scheduled with the same entity at the same time.
Back in June some of our crew attended Dinosaur JS conference in Denver, CO.
This all got me thinking about TypeScript, Closure compiler, etc... and JS performance and development in general. But I have to admit, I was struggling to see how these technologies could benefit us in Drupal since most of our JS is done in Drupal.behaviors.
A web service is a software system designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over a network. Web services is a well-defined way for two computers to communicate with each other over the internet.
Drupal web services is always a good option for you
In Drupal, web service is being used to communicate with other web applications or mobile applications. Content can be shared and easily integrated with other applications as well.
Why use web services in Drupal?
Web services are useful because they present us with an architecture where a resource on a site (an image, textual content, such as a node ID or block ID, a video or audio file) is given a unique identifier.
For example, in Drupal, every node has an ID. Every file you upload to a Drupal site also has a unique path to it.
This is extremely useful since all applications share this common semantic standard. We name things similarly on all of our web applications.
Drupal services and real world examples
Here are some examples, perhaps we have to build a product site and they are developing a app for that product site in mobile, then we can pass data from web to mobile app using the web service. For example if the HR Department wants to integrate its job postings and applications with another web application such as job portals, web services can make this happen.
Advantages of Drupal web development services you can’t ignore
This leads to another advantage of using web services with Drupal and why we would choose to use Drupal in the first place. Instead of having to upload our photos twice—once to our Drupal site and then repeating the procedure to our some other applications, services allows us to upload the images to our Drupal site once and then automatically send that data over to other application which wants without having to upload one (or even a batch of images) again. It saves us time and speeds up the entire process of generating web-based content.
Building web services for Drupal 7
Drupal can use web services following any of the protocols mentioned earlier, including XML-RPC, REST, and SOAP. Drupal can consume web services by requesting data from other web applications using RSS and XML-formatted requests. As a Drupal developer, you can write your own service code in Drupal using PHP. You can also use the Services module as well as other service-specific contributed modules to create these web service requests.
Service module supports multiple interfaces like REST, XMLRPC, JSON, JSON-RPC, SOAP, AMF and more.
Make use of Drupal Services module for:
- Integration with core Drupal functionality like files, nodes, taxonomy, users, files and more.
- Response format API allows you to define response Formats for CONTENT-TYPE ie. application/json or application/xml. (also calls such as ENDPOINT/node/1.json work)
Additionally, all the communication between services, in our example between a client and a server, happens over HTTP (the standard web protocol). This is a uniform protocol that is used for transport and communication of the service. All transports take place uniformly using GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE requests, for example.
The HTTP requests are stand alone and occurs at one given moment and is isolated from all other activated requests. If HTTP requests works and gets a response, it succeeds. If HTTP requests doesn’t get response from the server or application it's communicating with, it fails. The requests can be repeated an infinite number of times.
