Jay L.ee: How To Make The Web Widgets Module Work With Drupal 7.50

For users of the awesome Web Widgets module, you’ll notice that it’ll no longer work after installing Drupal 7.50. But after digging into this issue, I realized that the problem was much simpler than I had originally imagined (Drupal 7.50 supporting PHP 7). Sometimes all it takes is to just RTFM lol.

ComputerMinds.co.uk: Dependency Injection – how to access services in controllers

If you are trying to get to grips with Dependency Injection in Drupal 8 then here is a walk-through of how I applied it in one of my Drupal 8 test projects.

Dries Buytaert: Drupal goes to Rio

As the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro enters its second and final week, it’s worth noting that the last time I blogged about Drupal and the Olympics was way back in 2008 when I called attention to the fact that Nike was running its sponsorship site on Drupal 6 and using Drupal’s multilingual capabilities to deliver their message in 13 languages. While watching some track and field events on television, I also spent a lot of time on my laptop with the NBC Olympics website. It is a site that has run on Drupal for several years, and this year I noticed they took it up a notch and did a redesign to enhance the overall visitor experience.

To make Drupal the leading mobile Drupal CMS platform, the top issues it sought to address were to: • Build a Drupal.org mobile guide for Drupal contributed solutions. • Ensure ability to use Drupal’s administrative forms in mobile devices. • Convert all of Drupal 8’s existing themes to be mobile responsive. • Improve front-end performance with respect to mobile use, including support for responsive images. Fast forward three years to the eve of its long awaited release, and Drupal 8 is set to become the most “mobile first” version of the Drupal CMS framework to date, with its new responsive features being among the most anticipated. What are the results of this mobile initiative? Let’s take a look. As I sit in my rusty independent coffee shop looking for an angle for this topic, I can’t help but look around and size up the technology at work around me. Directly…
