Drupal Commerce: See what’s new in Drupal Commerce 2.0-rc1

Planet Drupal - 21 July 2017 - 1:34pm

Eight months ago we launched the first beta version of Commerce 2.x for Drupal 8. Since then we’ve made 304 code commits by 58 contributors, and we've seen dozens of attractive, high-performing sites go live. We entered the release candidate phase this month with the packaging of Commerce 2.0-rc1 (release notes), the final part of our long and fruitful journey to a full 2.0.

Introducing a new Promotions UI:

Some of the most exciting updates this Summer center around our promotions system. This work represents a huge leap forward from Commerce 1.x, as we've made promotions first class citizens in core. They power a variety of discount types and coupons, and now that they are in core we can ensure the systems are designed to look and work well on both the front end and back end.

Read on to learn more about what's new in promotions, payment, taxes, and more...

Hawk Wargames Announces Dropzone Commander 2nd Edition

Tabletop Gaming News - 21 July 2017 - 1:00pm

Adventure Writing Like A Fucking Boss

New RPG Product Reviews - 21 July 2017 - 10:32am
Publisher: Kort'thalis Publishing
Rating: 5
Originally posted here:

Have you ever wanted to make your own adventures? Do you want to be like Venger and write them like a fucking boss? Well, this is the book for you then. Overtly the book is focused on people writing their own adventures for the first time, but the advice given is so solid that even old veterans like me kind find it useful. Some of the advice is common sense, but never underestimate the value of stating something plainly. There are no groundbreaking revelations here, no paradigm shifts and no occult insights. And that is perfectly fine by me. Adventure writing is not supposed to be Shakespeare, it's supposed to be Poe. The advice given though is rock solid, and it provides easily repeatable to create fun, entertaining adventures that don't feel like a railroad.
Honestly I would package this up with his How To Game Master Like a Fucking Boss to give GMs a full toolbox of advice and tricks to help any adventure; whether they wrote it themselves or grab one off the shelf. Venger really should bundle this with the Character book and call it the "Be A Fucking Boss Bundle".
I have a Trek game coming up. I know what I want to do with it, but I am going to run my ideas through this book and give them a test. So far all the advice has panned out well and I believe that this will be a better adventure because ot it.

Glassdimly tech Blog: Responsive iframe in Drupal 8 from Client Embed Code

Planet Drupal - 21 July 2017 - 10:27am

Nobody likes iframes. That's because you can't style their innards, and they aren't responsive... or are they?!?!

The first thing to know about here is the padding height hack. This allows you to set the height of an object relative to the width, because while height is always as a percentage of the container, padding height is as a percentage of width. So all you have to know is the ratio of height to width and you can make a thing that responsively scales.

Glassdimly tech Blog: Parse HTML in Drupal 8 to Get Attributes

Planet Drupal - 21 July 2017 - 9:50am

Often one finds oneself needing to parse HTML. Back in the day, we used regexes, and smoked inside. We didn't even know about caveman coders back then. Later, we'd use SimpleHtmlDom and mostly just swore when things didn't quite work as expected. Now, we use PHP's DomDocument, and in Drupal we create them using Drupal's HTML utility.
