Valuebound: An overview of JSON API: A text-based data exchange format

Planet Drupal - 6 October 2017 - 2:35am

People develop APIs for a variety of reasons, such as to create a tool to facilitate internal processes or an external product for customers or to build a third party tool. And for such purpose JSON comes to the rescue. The open standard format JSON follows shared conventions that help in increasing productivity, take advantage of generalized tooling, and focus on the web applications. 

If you are a developer you must have noticed that there is very little information on the web regarding JSON API when compared to its usability. In this blog post, I will share an overview of JSON API. Let's try and understand what is JSON API? Its advantages over…

Hide file tab

New Drupal Modules - 6 October 2017 - 12:37am

Hide file tab is used to remove the file tab from view on the /admin/content section.

The motivation for this is due to the confusion between the File tab and Media tab (when enabled). This could be solved with the use of the 'Access the Files overview page' permission however it cannot be removed for the admin role.

Note: this will only hide the tab and does not restrict access to it for users that actually have the 'Access the Files overview page' permission.

Valuebound: How to Handle Resource Intensive Tasks on Queue With Drupal Queue Worker/API

Planet Drupal - 5 October 2017 - 6:34pm

It's never too late to share something useful with mates. And in this blog, I am going to discuss Queue Worker/API and how to implement it in Drupal 8. After completing this blog cum tutorial you will find yourself at a moderate level of expertise in implementing Queue API.

A couple of months back, we had a situation in one of our project where we had to pull data from a centralized server and update that content to the site almost every day. In order to overcome this scenario, we started using cron, but faced a situation where we were missing few contents because of time out. After a little research and discussion, we (our team) decided to implement queue worker. And yes! It worked.

Let’s start with Queue API.

Queue API enables us to handle a…

Nextide Blog: Untapped areas for Business Improvements

Planet Drupal - 5 October 2017 - 3:24pm

Many organization still struggle with the strain of manual processes that touch critical areas of the business. And these manual processes could be costlier that you think. It’s not just profit that may be slipping away but employee moral, innovation, competitiveness and so much more.

By automating routine tasks you can increase workflow efficiency, which in turn can free up staff for higher value work, driving down costs and boosting revenue. And it may be easier to achieve productivity gains simpler, faster, and with less risk that you may assume.

Most companies with manual work processes have been refining them for years, yet they may still not be efficient because they are not automated. So the question to ask is, “can I automate my current processes?”.

Roman Agabekov: Sending emails from Drupal-powered sites. Setting up Exim under Debian

Sending emails from Drupal-powered sites. Setting up Exim under Debian

Once you have the web server set up and running, you need to make sure your Drupal site can send emails, like registration confirmation, password change etc.

For inbound email, you may want to use email services like that offered by Google Apps. They offer good spam protection and secure storage.

To send email from a Drupal-powered site, you can use an SMTP module and do it all through a third party mail service. Alternatively, you can set up your own SMTP server. This article describes setting up an Exim server that allows sending emails.

Paul Johnson: Introducing Drupal's vast Creative Commons image library

Planet Drupal - 5 October 2017 - 1:14am

For several years a team of photographers have captured the essence of DrupalCon through the lens. Michael Cannon and more recently Suzanne Coates have done a sterling job formalising the photographic efforts into a professional (volunteer) operation. Not only is this a prime example of contributing to open source without code, we have curated a vast library of Creative Commons licensed images available for anyone to use.

Our long term objective has been to create a large library of high quality Drupal related imagery available for free so journalists, bloggers, Drupal end users and community members can easily find photos to brighten your news articles, blog posts, marketing materials. Please respect the CC licensing which requires attribution to the photographer. I look forward to seeing many more of these images appearing across the internet.

Below are links to the Flickr Groups for Drupal and DrupalCon's leading to over 10,000 images. Huge thanks to the many photographers who have contributed to this vast and colourful resource.
