James Oakley: Installing the latest version of Drush

Planet Drupal - 8 December 2014 - 3:21pm

In case you missed it, Drush has evolved recently.

Quick primer for beginners follows. (Although, if you haven't heard of Drush, the chances are this post was not written with you in mind. I blog about many subjects, and there aren't many readers who are interested in all of them!)

Drush stands for Drupal shell - it's a very powerful shell environment for managing Drupal sites using the command-line shell. … Read more about Installing the latest version of Drush

Status Watchdog Logger

New Drupal Modules - 8 December 2014 - 12:33pm

Status Watchdog logs system status messages (admin/reports/status) to the watchdog. This is especially useful when combined with syslog and external monitoring solutions such as Splunk.

Dependencies Installation

Simply turn on the module and watchdog messages will be logged during cron runs. By default, messages are logged once per hour and after a cache clear. This ensures that any changes in status after a deployment are immediately logged.

Nuvole: Atrium Folders for Open Atrium 2

Planet Drupal - 8 December 2014 - 9:19am
Subtitle: Nuvole's files and documents management feature is now available for the latest version of Open Atrium

We received many requests to make an updated version of our Atrium Folders feature available for the latest version of Open Atrium, the excellent Drupal-based solution for Intranets developed by Phase2.

OECD sponsored the development of the new version as an open source project, in order to add a file management functionality to the Innovation Policy Platform site that it manages together with the World Bank. Atrium Folders for Open Atrium 2 is thus now available to everybody.

The usual features, a new way

Open Atrium changed completely and so did Atrium Folders. There are many differences under the hood, with a complete code rewrite, but the familiar user experience is still there.

Uploading and downloading files

Creating folders and adding files to the folders is as easy as creating any other content in Open Atrium 2: it is enough to create "Files sections". When you are viewing a folder, specific buttons allow to create subfolders, upload files and directly download any file.

Access management

The access management works like for other nodes in Open Atrium. Access to the folder can be restricted for both viewing and editing separately, and it can be determined at a folder level.

Notifications

The notification system of Open Atrium can also be used for folders. Users can be informed when new files are added, with the same interface used by other Open Atrium features.

And much more Media module support

The files are attached with the Media widget and it is thus possible to manage not only files, but everything Media supports, like for example YouTube videos or files attached to other content.

Multiple uploads, with drag and drop support

The multi-upload feature of Open Atrium 2 can also be used with Folders to upload several files at the same time. Drag and drop uploads are supported too.

Download folder as ZIP file

The download button for files exists also for folders and it allows to download a folder with its subfolders and all included files as a ZIP archive. This functionality is available as a submodule, bundled with Atrium Folders.

File and folder revisions

Atrium Folders supports history and revisions both for folders and files. You can view previous versions of a file and optionally restore an older version. This functionality is available as a submodule, bundled with Atrium Folders.

Download, installation and support

The Open Atrium Folders feature can be downloaded and installed like any other module.

It is available on drupal.org at https://www.drupal.org/project/oa_folders/

Please report any issues in the module's issue queue at drupal.org

Announcing the Drupal 8 Accelerate Fund

Dries Buytaert - 8 December 2014 - 9:01am
Topic: DrupalDrupal Association

Today the Drupal Association announced a new program: the Drupal 8 Accelerate Fund. Drupal 8 Accelerate Fund is a $125,000 USD fund to help solve critical issues and accelerate the release of Drupal 8.

The Drupal Association is guaranteeing the funds and will try to raise more from individual members and organizations within the Drupal community. It is the Drupal 8 branch maintainers — Nathaniel Catchpole, Alex Pott, Angie Byron, and myself — who will decide on how the money is spent. The fund provides for both "top-down" (directed by the Drupal 8 branch maintainers) and "bottom-up" (requested by other community members) style grants. The money will be used on things that positively impact the Drupal 8 release date, such as hiring contributors to fix critical bugs, sponsoring code sprints to fix specific issues, and other community proposals.

Since the restructuring of the Drupal Association, I have encouraged the Drupal Association staff and Board of Directors to grow into our ambitious mission; to unite a global open source community to build and promote Drupal. I've also written and talked about the fact that scaling Open Source communities is really hard. The Drupal 8 Accelerate Fund is an experiment with crowdsourcing as a means to help scale our community which is unique compared to other efforts because it is backed by the official non-profit organization that fosters and supports Drupal.

I feel that the establishment of this fund is an important step towards more sustainable core development. My hope is that if this round of funding is successful that this can grow over time to levels that could make an even more meaningful impact on core, particularly if we complement this with other approaches and steps, such as organization credit on Drupal.org.

This is also an opportunity for Drupal companies to give back to Drupal 8 development. The Drupal Association board is challenging itself to raise $62,500 USD (half of the total amount) to support this program. If you are an organization who can help support this challenge, please let us know. If you're a community member with a great idea on how we might be able to spend this money to help accelerate Drupal 8, you can apply for a grant today.

Code Enigma: Meaningful commit messages

Planet Drupal - 8 December 2014 - 4:51am
At Code Enigma, most of our Jenkins builds post a git log into one of our IRC channels on completion. This helps the ops team to keep an eye on what's going on and to quickly spot any build failures. It also gives us a chance to see the commit messages that people are posting.

Drupal Bits at Web-Dev: Manage Drupal Feature Updates

Planet Drupal - 5 December 2014 - 8:38pm

When using Features module to move changes from one  development environment to the next, it can be tricky to track which Feature ought to be 'reverted' in order make the new code be incontrol.  Sure you can revert them all in one shot with `drush features-revert-all`, but that is pretty intensive to do especially on a production site and can lead to some race conditions.

Code Karate: Drupal Role Assign Module: Controlling who can assign what roles on your Drupal site

Planet Drupal - 5 December 2014 - 3:27pm
Episode Number: 183

By default a Drupal site has a lot of flexibility when it comes to assigning user roles and permissions. There are times however when the default flexibility is not quite enough. The Drupal Role Assign Module extends this flexibility a little by allowing more fine grained control over setting user roles.

The Drupal RoleAssign module allows you to allow other roles to assign users roles... confused yet? An example might be helpful. Assume you have the following Drupal roles on your site:
