Valuebound: Using the Content Type to manage content consistently

Planet Drupal - 3 February 2016 - 9:51pm

In previous blog post we have installed Drupal 8 on our system manually as well as using Drush. Drupal 8 Provides two built in content type Article and Basic page. We can use this to create pages. But most of time we need to either add fields to these content types or we just need to add new content type to organize the content better.

Probably the first change site builders will notice in Drupal 8 are the changes to content types and fields. The field changes affect not only content types, but any entity that can have fields e.g. taxonomy or user profile.

When we edit any content type,…

jmolivas.com: Drupal Console session proposal for DrupalCon New Orleans 2016

Planet Drupal - 3 February 2016 - 4:07pm
Drupal Console session proposal for DrupalCon New Orleans 2016

I am planning to propose a session for DrupalCon New Orleans about Drupal 8 development and Drupal Console and currently looking for session name ideas.

Session abstract text:

Drupal is infamous for his learning curve of drupalisms but Drupal 8 simplifies and standardize the development process, unfortunately this comes with a cost. Drupal 8 is more technically advanced compared to its predecessor and managing the increasing complexity of Drupal 8 could be a daunting task. 

The Drupal Console is a CLI tool that helps you manage that complexity allowing you to generate boilerplate code, interact and debug Drupal 8.

The Drupal Console has been designed to increase productivity making Drupal development and interaction efficient and enjoyable.

Come along as we explore this tool that will help you developing by taking advantage of the modern PHP practices introduced into Drupal 8.

Chapter Three: How markup is safe in Drupal 8

Planet Drupal - 3 February 2016 - 10:30am

Nobody wants a website that can be hacked. Drupal has a great security track record and works hard to ensure that core and contributed modules are safe for everyone to use. One of the most common types of security issue is a cross-site scripting attack (XSS). In Drupal 8 we've made extensive changes to the theme system that reduce XSS vulnerabilities.

Mediacurrent: Pro Tip: How to Write Conditional CSS for IE10 and 11

Planet Drupal - 3 February 2016 - 7:53am

While working on recent Drupal projects, I learned that Internet 10 and 11 (IE10-11) no longer support IE conditional comments. Conditional comments allow us to target specific versions or version ranges of IE to correct bugs or inconsitentices that normally are not present on other browsers. Typically for IE9 and below, we have been able to write conditional css by using something like this:

Configuration source

New Drupal Modules - 3 February 2016 - 3:40am

This module extends the Configuration Synchronization user interface with a form to select the source of the configuration to synchronize with.

The core user interface only has the ability to compare with the default sync directory. But it is possible to define any number of other source directories in the settings.php, so this module makes it possible to compare changes between those directories and the active configuration, and to import those changes.
