Gábor Hojtsy: Winner of the 2016 Aaron Winborn Award

The Aaron Winborn Award was created in 2015 after the loss of one of one of the Drupal community’s most prominent members, Aaron Winborn, to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease in the US and Motor Neuron Disease in the UK). Aaron’s commitment to the Drupal project and community made him the epitome of our unofficial motto: “Come for the code, stay for the community”. The Community Working Group with the support of the Drupal Association came together to honor Aaron’s memory by establishing the Aaron Winborn Award, which annually recognizes an individual who demonstrates personal integrity, kindness, and above-and-beyond commitment to the Drupal community.

We are pleased…

Online Harassment and DrupalCon

It’s no secret that online harassment is a huge and growing problem for people trying to use the Internet. A 2014 Pew Research Center study found that 73% of adult Internet users in the United States have observed someone being harassed online and 40% have personally experienced harassment themselves.

The recent #MoreThanMean video (trigger warning: contains descriptions of physical and sexual violence) by American sports journalists Sarah Spain and Julie DiCaro is just one example of the impact that this anonymous abuse has on others. One of the shared values of the…

Enabling Fancy Attributes in Commerce 2.x

In Drupal Commerce 1.x, we used the Commerce Fancy Attributes and Field Extractor modules to render attributes more dynamically than just using simple select lists. This let you do things like show a color swatch instead of just a color name for a customer to select. Fancy Attributes on a product display in Commerce Kickstart 2.x. In Commerce 2.0-alpha4, we introduced specific product attribute related entity types. Building on top of them and other contributed modules, we can now provide fancy attributes out of the box! When presenting the attribute dropdown, we show the labels of attribute values. But since attribute values are fieldable, we can just as easily use a different field to represent it, such as an image or a color field. To accomplish this, we provide a new element type that renders the attribute value entities as a radio button option. Read more to see an example…
