Chrome to deprecate Flash - by Ruben Gerlach Blogs - 17 May 2016 - 10:13pm
The Chrome team revealed plans to block Flash content from every website unless a user explicitly allows the player to run. This is another step in what seems to be a plan to ban Flash from the web. These are my thoughts as a game developer on the topic.

This allows you to create revisions but hide reduces noise for your content editors/site owners. Supported entity types currently are Node and Media Entity, extending to support other entities is very simple.

Kettou Samurai Reflex Game Back Up On Kickstarter

Tabletop Gaming News - 17 May 2016 - 3:00pm
Companies using Kickstarter do well to listen to the people who are backing (or potentially backing) their projects. Sometimes the first time out of the gate, things aren’t quite right. A smart company will alter their campaign as much as they can. And if that means stopping a campaign and restarting, so be it. That’s […]

Radium on Drupal: Retrieving Entities from MongoDB in Drupal 8

Planet Drupal - 17 May 2016 - 9:49am
Normally in Drupal, all the entities are stored in the same database, which is usually MySQL or other Relational Databases. What if we have data elsewhere, and want to access them in Drupal? I often use MongoDB, and I think it is a good idea if I could directly retrieve or edit from Drupal, without having to import data into Drupal. What we could utilize is a module called External Entities. It does what its name says: allowing Drupal to treat external resources as a special type of entities. Similar modules include Remote Entity API (which doesn't have a Drupal 8 version yet). Currently, External Entities comes with two build-in drivers: REST and Wiki. We will be creating a new driver for MongoDB. Today, we will just deal with retrieving data, not modifying.
