Ctanywhere (Change text anywhere) module helps site admin to find and replace text anywhere in the drupal site. This avoids many form alters for text changes and also helps site admins to change text at places where developers find difficult to alter the texts.
Site admin must add a url, text to find in the url and text to replace values in the admin section. This module then finds and replaces text at the particular url.
Summits are one-day events focused around specific topics and areas of practice that gather people in specific industries or with specific skills to dive deep into the issues that matter and collaborate freely.

After the success of last year's GSOC project with Drupal, I thought it would be a great idea to see if we could take what we did there (server-side encryption) and do something similar on the client side. The benefit of this approach is that unencrypted content/data is never seen by the hosting server. So it's not necessary to trust it to the same degree. This has been a requested feature for some time, and become very popular within the instant-messaging space.
I posted the idea, but wasn't sure how much traction there would be given the additional complexity. Before long, there were two interested students, Marcin Czarnecki and Tameesh Biswas, who were interested in the project given their interest in cryptography. They both wrote very good proposals, which we in the Drupal community accepted.
With the help of Adam Bergstein (my co-mentor from last year) and Talha Paracha (last year's student), we were able to mentor both students in working towards completing their projects, even with the added complexity. Unlike last year, users' passwords couldn't be used to encrypt anything because the site has access to these. An out-of-band mechanism was necessary to perform the encryption, public-key cryptography. It needed to be in the hands of users themselves instead of being handled implicitly by the server.
I'm delighted to report that both students passed. The community can now take their projects and build upon them. Please review the new Drupal modules at Client-side content encryption (overview) and Client Side File Crypto (overview). If there are any issues, please open tickets in the respective queues.
This article, Client-side encryption options now available in Drupal, appeared first on the Colan Schwartz Consulting Services blog.

Next week we’re heading to DrupalCon Vienna 2017. We’re pleased to sponsor the Women in Drupal event again this year, and in the spirit of sharing what we’ve learned we’ll also be delivering several sessions throughout the event. Here’s a taste of what to expect:Component driven front-end development
John Ennew. 26th September, 2.15pm in Lehar 2.
With a component based approach your development team can maintain a catalogue of templates independent of the backend CMS.
When the backend work starts, these components will then be integrated into Drupal. This talk will describe a method for doing this which does not cause complex themes or copying pieces of template code out of the front-end prototypes.
This talk will cover:
- The general approach to component based development
- A method for developing components independent of the backend system which will be used
- How to integrate the components with Drupal 8
- An overview of the advantages of this approach

A lot of Drupal sites are run by only a handful of people. A few power users receive the rights to administer other user accounts, some others can post and publish content and everyone else can just view content and “use” the site. It’s when this scenario doesn’t suit your needs that you might want to have a look at the Group module.
Group allows you to give people similar permissions like those above but only for smaller subsections of a website. Say you run a school website and you want students to be able to only see the courses that are available for them to enroll in, but nothing else. Or you want to run a social network where users can post content, but only within their sandboxed area on the website. Group’s got you covered.
This session will be a brief description of the Group module by its author Kristiaan Van den Eynde (Deeson) and explain its key concepts. We will demo how to configure it and then show you how Group is used in the wonderful Open Social distribution.
Joining us for the second part of the presentation, Jochem van Nieuwenhuijsen (GoalGorilla / Open Social) will explain how Group enabled a team of talented developers to build a social network using Drupal 8. He will list some of the challenges and show you some of the cool stuff they built on top of the Group module.
This session is suitable for developers with some experience with Drupal 8 site building, but most of the presentation should be easy to digest for even the most junior site builders.Birds of a Feather sessions
Drupal recently announced that Vienna will be the last European conference for the foreseeable future, and that they will host BoFs at the event for the community to discuss the future.
If you’re not familiar with the BoF format, DrupalCon describes them as “informal gatherings of like-minded individuals who wish to discuss a certain topic without a pre-planned agenda”. This year, Deeson team members are delivering five BoF sessions:Facilitating happy, high performing distributed teams
Tim Deeson. 26th September, 10.45am in Galerie 11-12.
An opportunity to share tips and tools for what you've found works or problems you want help with.
At Deeson we've found a mix of tools, processes and relationship building is key. And that sharing what works for us and learning from others is invaluable.
- Are there tools that you find that really make a difference?
- Any team events or activities that help people get to know each other?
- How do you spot if someone isn't happy or engaged?
- What methods works or doesn't work for different types of personalities?
- Is always-on Slack a blessing or a curse?
- Do in-person events matter or can everything be done online?
- Do you have a structured way of supporting the team to get know each other well?

The are many ways to run an Agile project.
Much of the written support for working with Agile is based on an internal team which doesn't always support to how the client and agency relationship works.
Agencies have a variety of mechanisms for running an Agile project from simply embedding the ceremonies of Agile to actually ensuring the project team, client and contract are Agile from the start.
Come along and share your experiences (highs and lows), your tips and your best practices for making Agile work in an Agency.

This BoF is intended for site builders who are actively using Group for Drupal 8 and are wondering what's currently planned for development or for site builders who think there is a key feature missing from Group 8 right now. The goal is to either learn about what's coming or to actually add something to the roadmap, provided it would be useful to a larger audience.
Kristiaan Van den Eynde. 28th September, 12pm in Galerie 13-14.
This BoF is intended for those involved in https://www.drupal.org/node/777578 and all those who wish to participate by writing a proof of concept or by brainstorming over possible approaches.
