Text Block

New Drupal Modules - 18 July 2018 - 6:22am

This module provides the ability to add exportable blocks with custom text.

It differs from core's Custom Block module in that way that this module only provides a plugin from where to create configuration instances. It also only provides one input field for inserting some custom text / markup using a certain filter format, while Custom Block offers you to arbitrarily attach fields.

Droptica: Working with a team that is spread out over many locations can be comfortable and pleasant, just like working in a team working at a single office. See how we do it at Droptica.

Planet Drupal - 18 July 2018 - 5:59am
At Droptica, remote work is something ordinary. From the very first day, we had two offices in Wrocław and Gdańsk. Recently, we also opened our third office in Rzeszów. Every day, developers, testers, graphic designers and other specialists work together in each of these locations. In addition, 90% of our clients come from abroad, like in the case of most software houses. Throughout several years, we have developed methods of effective and efficient cooperation in a dispersed team. We are constantly improving our work model, testing new tools and ways of working. In this article, you will learn how our system works today.

Droptica: Models of cooperation of the development team and the client based on the examples used at Droptica

Planet Drupal - 18 July 2018 - 5:28am
Droptica helps clients from all over the world to complete and implement their projects. Each of these clients has already developed their way of working. Everyone is different. In this article, I have collected the most common ways and systems of cooperation between Droptica and our clients. Why do we work a little differently with every client? We are Agile. We always want to maximise the results of our work, so our development team always adjusts and adapts their way of working to the client’s needs. The elements that are adapted and changed the most often include:

Drupal Association blog: The Values & Principles Committee

Planet Drupal - 18 July 2018 - 4:00am

In a previous blog post, I wrote that Dries asked for help in continuing the development of the Values & Principles and that a Values & Principles Committee will be formed to facilitate this. Well, we are at the point where we can explain how the committee will be formed, its purpose and how it will achieve its goals.

Purpose

The Values & Principles Committee will exist to focus on specific Values & Principles to see where continual improvements can be made and to propose those to the Project Lead for approval. For example, in meetings at DrupalCon Nashville, Dries expressed a desire to focus on Principle 8: “Every person is welcome; every behavior is not” because it is both critically important, in need of work, and requires more input.

Formation

To learn more about how the Values and Principle Committee will work, please read the charter, which is attached.

We have been giving thought to how we can facilitate a better, more open, process for appointing members to this Committee and we have come up with the following:

We will be posting role descriptions for the volunteer committee roles on jobs.drupal.org. The Values & Principles Committee Member voluntary role description will describe the:

  • Expectations of the role

  • The specific jobs the role will require

  • An indication of the time commitment of the role

  • The attributes that would be expected of a successful candidate

  • How to apply

The Committee Member role will be advertised from today until 3 August 2018 at https://jobs.drupal.org/drupal-community/job/15126 and then I will take the applications to Dries Buytaert and Megan Sanicki to select candidates based on the membership requirements outlined in the charter and role description.

This work matters to them personally and through their roles:  Dries as Drupal Project Lead and Megan as Drupal Association Executive Director. In addition to their different experiences and perspectives, they bring a wealth of experience in enterprise leadership, organizational culture and community building.  They hope to assemble a group that is inspired by this work, diverse, and representative of the values and principles we hope to inspire in the community. After the initial membership is selected, the membership will help recruit new members going forward.

Once the committee is selected, it can then begin work, in consultation with subject matter experts, on updating the values and principles.

My call to action for you is to consider whether volunteering as a Member of this Values & Principles Committee is a way that you can contribute to the Drupal Community and, if so, to submit your application.

I’m really keen to ensure that the Values & Principles Committee has membership from many places, with a diverse background and representing many a wide understanding of what makes Drupal - Drupal. It is even baked into the Values & Principles Committee Charter, attached.

Contact storage options email recipient

New Drupal Modules - 18 July 2018 - 3:55am

The contact_storage module supplies an 'Options email' field type which can be used to determine the recipient of the contact form. When an 'Options email' field is added to a form, you are still required to enter a recipient's email address on the contact form edit page. This results in an email sent to the entered recipient address and the recipient selected in the 'Options email' field.

OPTASY: How to Add Autocomplete to Text Fields in Drupal 8: Defining a Custom Route

Planet Drupal - 18 July 2018 - 3:15am
How to Add Autocomplete to Text Fields in Drupal 8: Defining a Custom Route radu.simileanu Wed, 07/18/2018 - 10:15

Let's say that it's a WhatsApp-like, a decoupled, Drupal 8-backed, real-time chat platform that you're building. One using Node.js. In this case, implementing field autocomplete functionality becomes a must, doesn't it? But how do you add autocomplete to text fields in Drupal 8?

Needless to add that such otherwise "basic" functionality — implemented on fields such as node reference and user/tags — would instantly:
 

  1. improve the user experience 
  2. increase the level of user interactivity and engagement
     

Users would group around different "channels" and be able to easily add new members. The auto-complete text fields will make the whole “new member coopting” process conveniently easy:
