Acquia Developer Center Blog: Template Doesn’t Mean Cookie Cutter

Planet Drupal - 14 August 2017 - 6:11am

The mere mention of website templates makes some clients bristle. Nobody likes being told they have to conform to a set of rules they feel weren’t written with them in mind. They also believe that their site will look like everyone else’s and not meet their unique needs.

Let’s start by dispelling that myth: that using templates means your site will look like everyone else’s.

Sooper Drupal Themes: Unsplash Drupal Module, Product Updates For Drupal 7 and Drupal 8.x-alpha2

Planet Drupal - 12 August 2017 - 3:28pm

Today we announce updates to our Drupal 7 Glazed Theme and Builder, an update alpha2 release for Drupal 8 (Testing only) and announce the Unsplash Media module.

Media Unsplash: Free Photos Without Leaving Your Website

This week we're adding a new module to our Glazed CMS Distribution that will be especially exciting to all designers, publishers, marketers, and lovers of photograph among us. Rather than searching Google for free photos, you can browse the Unsplash collection of over 200.00 free photos right in your Drupal 7 Media popup. To the uninitiated: Unsplash is a carefully curated collection of professional photography that has been shaking up the stock photography market in the past few years. All photos are provided totally free with a do whatever you want license. This module provides a simple search interface right in your Media popup, see how simple it works in the video:

Sorry, the Youtube video can't load here, you may view this post SooperThemes.com and play the video

This module was built by Vallic based on our initiative/idea, collaboration and co-sponsoring. It was an especially smooth collaboration because Vallic has previously ported the media_pixabay module and allthough the Unsplash API was slightly more complicated, the scaffolding of that module could be re-used.

Integration with the Drupal 7 Media module means that the Unsplash library is also available when configuring theme settings, building pages with our Drupal Drag and Drop Builder, and in any other form that leverages the Media browser.

Drupal 8 Alpha2 Test Release

Just 10 days after our first test release for Drupal 8 we are bringing you alpha2! If you are a customer and curious (or excited) about Drupal 8 please join us in the alpha2 testing and feedback thread! The more testing we can do now, the faster we can release the beta and stable version when Drupal 8.4 comes out. Join in and test our latest and greatest today!

Changes in alpha2:

  • Demo Content Import now works if you select and import any language in the installer! The content will be naturalized to match your selected language. This means you can edit demo content and translate it as if it was initially created in your webite's primary language.
  • Fixed missing titles on views and blocks in Glazed Builder
  • Updated branding & Design
  • Minor performance improvements
Glazed Theme 7.x-2.6.5 Release

Today's updates for Glazed theme include a number of minor bug fixes as well as improvements to the admin interface for themers. Several performance improvements were also realized. We added minification to more of the custom Glazed javascript files, we updated some 3rd party libraries (animate.css), and dropped the modernizr dependency for our animated mobile menu. See Changelog for more details.

The branding and design of some elements are slightly changed to reflect the changes we are making for the Drupal 8 release. There's even a single SVG icon that made it into this release, it's from Font Awesome 5 (beta). Expect more where that came from!

Glazed Builder 7.x-1.1.4 Release

This minor release for Glazed Builder includes small bug fixes, some editor-experience enhancements. Modernizations in code and design that reflect the work we are doing for the Drupal 8 release are also included. See Changelog for details.

Try Glazed Builder On Trysooperthemes.com

The Admin demo is free, no registration required!

Important NoteS If You're Updating A Complete Installation Profile

We open sourced our GridStack Drupal module! Now our profiles includes sooperthemes_gridstack. This is a rebrand of the glazed_gridstack module that you might have in your website. If you're updating your installation profile you should check if you use any GridStack view on your site. If you do, you can choose to either disable the sooperthemes_gridstack module, or rebuild (or export/import) them using the SooperThemes GridStack module and then disable and uninstall the glazed_gridstack module. This goes both for customers using our premium theme and for people on the free Glazed CMS Distribution.

Planet Drupal - 12 August 2017 - 1:01pm
Start:  2017-08-15 12:00 - 2017-08-17 12:00 UTC Event type:  Online meeting (eg. IRC meeting)

The monthly security release window for Drupal 8 and 7 core will take place on Wednesday, August 16.

This does not mean that a Drupal core security release will necessarily take place on that date for any of the Drupal 8 or 7 branches, only that you should watch for one (and be ready to update your Drupal sites in the event that the Drupal security team decides to make a release).

Drupal 8.4.0-beta1 will also be released sometime during the week to continue preparation for the upcoming minor release in October.

There will be no bug fix or stable feature release on this date. The next window for a Drupal core patch (bug fix) release for all branches is Wednesday, September 06. The next scheduled minor (feature) release for Drupal 8 will be on Wednesday, October 5.

For more information on Drupal core release windows, see the documentation on release timing and security releases, and the discussion that led to this policy being implemented.

Palantir: Learning by Doing: Palantir’s Internship Program

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...
  • Why we love having interns
  • Some skills our interns learn
  • An intro to our current Summer interns

Stay connected with the latest news on web strategy, design, and development.

Sign up for our newsletter.

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.
