Doom, Downwell, Don't Stand Still: Is the way a Game Makes us Feel Important? - by Tobias Hendricks
Drupal 8 is the latest version of Drupal that receives a lot of attention among Drupal community. Its minor release Drupal 8.3.0 has already come out. Each its feature is interesting and is described in our collection of Drupal 8 articles. In today’s blog post Drupal 8 will also be in focus, however from the angle of SEO.Read more
Drop Guard is in a continuous process of optimization and development. As it is still a unique platform concept on the market place, we started years ago with a sketchy blueprint of what Drop Guard is today - and rather will be in future. With this post I will give you a quick overview of what is planned and something which is a little secret between you and me.

This module allow user to add and remove available CSS and JS file in project.
Please post your ideas and suggestions in the issue queue.
Currently the dragable field "User name and password" mashes together:
- Current password
- E-mail address
- Change Password
- Notify user about new account (when admin create new account)
This module aims to split "User name and password" into standalone fields for site builders who want to manage that fields separately.Usage
After enabling of this module you will see a list of new fields on Account settings Manage form display.
It’s a small developer-focused conference for architects, developers, and businesspeople who are involved in implementing decoupled Drupal architectures in their various lines of work.Anli de Jager Tue, 08/08/2017 - 08:45
This 2-day conference will create a platform for those involved in decoupled Drupal architectures to come together to share their knowledge and insights during a single track of sessions about decoupled architecture strategies, technology, and best practices. There will also be opportunities to contribute to the learning experience through the building of open-source projects in sprints.
Decoupled Drupal Sites not only bring exciting new technologies to us. They also require a new way of thinking around local development and hosting. At Amazee our speciality is Decoupling Drupal with React and GraphQL and we have multiple Decoupled Sites running, all with enabled Server-Side-Rendering, CDNs and Reverse Proxies included!
Our very own Michael "schnitzel" Schmid will, therefore, be hosting a session, ‘Your PHP and Nginx won't be enough to host and develop your decoupled site’ that will address some of these questions that will undoubtedly come up, for example:
How to develop Node locally with multiple Node versions, test CORS and Server-Side-Rendering locally and make overall sure that my Node App behaves locally the same as in production.
How do I deploy, test and host that on a server when using ServerSide Rendering of my Decoupled Site built in Node.
How to use a CDN to cache my GraphQL/REST/JsonAPI requests and also the Server-Side-Rendering response.
In this session, Michael will also show you how the power of Docker allows to develop Decoupled Drupal Sites with Node and Server-Side-Rendering with a breeze and also how to use the same Docker Tools to run them in staging and production. No Docker Knowledge required :)

Every few weeks I hear from a colleague who’s dealing with the tangles of editorial tools on a web CMS project. Inevitably, someone on their team suggests that things will be easier if users can’t enter HTML at all. “We’ll use Markdown,” they say. “It’s simple.”
On most projects, it’s a terrible idea — and I’m going to rant about it. If you don’t care about the nerdy details, though, here’s the long and short of it:
Markdown turns common “plaintext” formatting conventions like asterisks, indentation, and so on into HTML markup. If you need anything more complicated (say, an image with a caption or a link that opens in a new window), you need to mix markdown and raw HTML. Markdown is easy to remember for simple stuff (blockquotes, italics, headings, etc) but more complicated structures require extensions to the standard that are just as tweaky as HTML.
It was designed to mirror the ad-hoc conventions of ASCII-only channels like Usenet, email, and IRC. As creator John Gruber said in his original introduction of the project:The overriding design goal for Markdown’s formatting syntax is to make it as readable as possible. The idea is that a Markdown-formatted document should be publishable as-is, as plain text, without looking like it’s been marked up with tags or formatting instructions.
Markdown’s strength is that it speeds and simplifies the most common text formatting tasks, and does so in a way that looks correct even before the markup is transformed into visual formatting. Markdown accomplishes that by ruthlessly cutting most HTML structures — anything that can’t be turned into a fairly straightforward ASCII-ism is left behind. When it’s pushed beyond that role, things get just as ugly any error-prone as raw HTML: witness the horrors of Markdown Tables and CSS In Markdown.
In many ways, Markdown is less a markup language and more a way to hide basic formatting information in a plain text document. That’s great! I use Markdown for my Jekyll-powered blog. If your project’s body field needs are simple text formatting without complicated embedding, captioning, microformatting, etc? Markdown is probably going to work fine. But — and this is a big one — if that’s all you need, then using a WYSIWYG HTML editor will also work fine.
WYSIWYG editors aren’t a pain because they “hide the code” from content creators. They’re problematic because they’re often configured to give editors access to the full range of HTML’s features, rather than the specific structural elements they really need to do their jobs. I’ve written about this “vocabulary mismatch” problem before, but it’s worth coming back to.
When you decide to use Markdown, you aren’t just choosing markup that’s easier to read; you're choosing a specific restrictive vocabulary. If that vocabulary covers your editors’ real needs, and they’ll be using plaintext to write and revise stories during their editorial workflow, by all means: consider it!
But if what you really need is a way to reign in chaotic, crappy markup, invest the time in figuring out how it’s being used in your content, what design requirements are being foisted on your editors, and what transformations are necessary for real world usage. Modern WYSIWYG editors don’t have to be the “dreamweaver in a div” disasters they used to be — taking the time to configure them carefully can give your team a clean, streamlined semantic editor that doesn’t constrain them unnecessarily.

Entity query decorator is a Drupal 8 wrapper around the Entity Query class to make querying entities even easier. Whenever using entity queries you generally always end up in the same scenario: Executing your query, checking for results, loading the entities, looping through the entities and then obtaining a value you want. This module sets out to simplify that process by providing a decorator class to combine those steps together.
This module provides a basic API interface for Drupal modules to use the Red Hat OpenShift API Endpoint. This is not an official module and is only intended as a useful supplementary for programming your own functions.
Documentation for the OpenShift API Endpoint is available at:
If you want an easy way to create engaging, content-driven websites for you and your customers, you should give Drupal 8 a try. And Drupal modules allow you to take things a step further and create highly customized functionality for your site.
