Comment Score

New Drupal Modules - 17 August 2014 - 8:27pm

Allows administrators to configure arbitrary rules in which to score the "badness" or "goodness" of comments on the site. The more positive the number, the more negativity points it has. It is typically easier to find negative modifiers than it is positive.

Book Menus

New Drupal Modules - 17 August 2014 - 8:02am
Introduction

Book Menus allows you to set books as normal drupal menus. This means they will be listed in admin/structure/menu, and have all of the additional functionality that comes along with it.

This will allow you to use menu-manipulation modules. For example, the initial development was due to wanting a more flexible book menu structure with titles/sections that are not necessarily links. This can be done using book_menus along with special_menu_items.

Victor Kane: Super simple example of local drush alias configuration

Planet Drupal - 17 August 2014 - 7:12am

So I have a folder for drush scripts _above_ several doc root folders on a dev user's server. And I want to run status or whatever and my own custom drush scripts on _different_ Drupal web app instances. Drush has alias capability for different site instances, so you can do:

$ drush @site1 status

So, how to set up an aliases file?

(I'm on Ubuntu with Drush 6.2.0 installed with PEAR as per this great d.o. doc page Installing Drush on Any Linux Server Out There (Kalamuna people, wouldn't you know it?)).

Careful reading of the excellent drush documentation points you to a Drush Shell Aliases doc page, and from there to the actual example aliases file that comes with every drush installation.

So to be able to run drush commands for a few of my local Drupal instances, I did this:

  • In my Linux user directory, I created the file ~/.drush/aliases.drushrc.php
  • Contents:
<?php $aliases['site1'] = array( 'root' => '/home/thevictor/site1/drupal-yii', 'uri' => 'drupal-yii.example.com', ); $aliases['site2'] = array( 'root' => '/home/thevictor/site2', 'uri' => 'site2.example.com', );

Then I can do, from anywhere as long as I am logged in as that user:

$ cd /tmp
$ drush @site1 status
...
$ drush @site2 status

and lots of other good stuff. Have a nice weekend.

Hosting Webhooks

This module will provide endpoints that allow third party services (like GitHub) to trigger task creation (like git pull) in your Aegir or DevShop server.

The vision of this module is to be as simple as possible with no dependencies, that is meant solely for triggering tasks.

Wesley Tanaka: Fast, Low Memory Drupal 6 System Module

Planet Drupal - 15 August 2014 - 6:24pm

A Drupal 5 version of this module is also available.  If you would like this patch to be committed to Drupal core, please do not leave a comment on this page—please instead add your comment to Drupal issue #455092.

This is a drop-in replacement for the system.module of Drupal 6.33 which makes your Drupal 6 site use less memory and may even make it faster. A test I ran in a development environment with a stock Drupal 6 installation suggested that I got:

Acquia: New Commons Media Integration

Planet Drupal - 15 August 2014 - 7:22am

Drupal is known for providing a broad range of functionality with its extensible core and the tens of thousands of free contributed modules which add or extend functionality. One challenge for people who are building applications on top of Drupal is taking advantage of this flexibility and broad range of available functionality without compromising the usability of their applications for end users, and even for themselves as site maintainers.

Drupal 8 and iOS: GSoC 2014 : An example iOS app project status

GSoC 2014 : An example iOS app project status

Hello Drupal Community,

I and my mentor Jeff Linwood ( https://www.drupal.org/u/jefflinwood ) we are very glad to inform you that GSoC 2014 project - an example iOS application for Drupal 8 has been completed.Links to all these projects along with demo video is given below. 

 

DrupalRESTKit : https://github.com/vivekvpandya/DrupalRESTKit

Tips&Tricks AFNetworking : https://github.com/vivekvpandya/TipsAndTricksAFNetworkingDrupal

Tips&Tricks NSURLSessionAPI : https://github.com/vivekvpandya/TipsAndTricksCFNetworkingDrupal

Demo :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iny71Kwgn_I

 

As per the requirement we have demonstrated CRUD operation for content entity , login - logout , fetching data from REST export ( for view). Due to file related bug in REST module () we are unable to demonstrate CRUD on file resources. We have used AFNetworking and we have also created same project with NSURLSession API.

 

 We have also created a generic DrupalRESTKit it simplifies developers task for CRUD on content entity, user, and comments. And still we are improving it. Any suggestion and feature requests are welcomed. If  you are an iOS developer then you can participate too. 

 

We have several other ideas in mind like we want to create an iOS app that can control Drupal 8 settings and configuration like putting site on maintenance mode, approving comments , user etc.

Is you face any problem regarding iOS and Drupal 8 communication ( specially REST module ) I would like to help you please mail me at vivekvpandya@gmail.com. If you find my project useful please intimate me.

Metal Toad: Drupal 7 Form API: Using #states with multiple conditionals (AND, OR and XOR)

Planet Drupal - 14 August 2014 - 11:53am

I've been playing with D7 forms lately and have found #states to be somewhat challenging due to lack of documentation on Form API page.
I've poked around a bit and decided to write a blog with my findings in case someone else is in need of this info down the road.
If you are looking for a robust solution for conditional fields, I would suggest looking into conditional fields.

Drupal.com refresh launched

Dries Buytaert - 14 August 2014 - 10:52am
Topic: Drupal

Back in the early days of Drupal, Drupal.com looked like this:

Drupal.com as launched in 2005.

On August 14 2009, I relaunched Drupal.com to replace the oh-so-embarrassing placeholder page. The 2009 re-launch turned Drupal.com into a better spotlight for Drupal. It wasn't hard to beat the white page with a Druplicon logo.

Drupal.com as launched in 2009.

What was a good spotlight five years ago though is no longer a good spotlight today. Five years later, Drupal.com didn't do Drupal justice. It didn't really explain what Drupal is, what you can use Drupal for, and more. Along with sub-optimal content, the site wasn't optimized for mobile use either.

Today, exactly five years later to the day, I'm excited to announce that I relaunched Drupal.com again:

Redesigning Drupal.com to make it more useful and current has been one of my New Year's resolutions for a number of years now. And as of today, I can finally strike that off my list.

The new Drupal.com has become richer in its content; you'll find a bit more information about Drupal to help people understand what Drupal is all about and how to get started with Drupal. On a desktop, on a tablet, on a phone, the site has become much easier to navigate and read.

I believe the new Drupal.com is a much better, more relevant showcase for Drupal. The goal is to update the site more regularly and to keep adding to it. My next step is to add more use cases and to include short demo videos of both the Drupal backend as well as the showcases. Drupal.com will become an increasingly helpful resource and starting point for people who are evaluating Drupal.

The changes are not limited to content and look; Drupal.com also has a new engine as the site was upgraded from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8 alpha (don't try this at home). We're using Drupal 8 to push the boundaries of site building and responsive design and to uncover bugs and usability issues with Drupal 8. Because we're using an alpha version of Drupal 8, things might not function perfectly yet. We’d still love to hear feedback from designers and front end developers on how it’s working.
