rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

Dropdown Menus in Drupal 8 with the Superfish Module

If you want to build a large, multi-level drop-down menu in Drupal 8, then the Superfish module is a great choice. The Superfish module makes use of the jQuery Superfish menu plugin, which is useful for multi-level drop-down menus. Superfish has more features than most dropdown menus. It supports touch devices and keyboard interaction. [[ This is a content summary only. Visit http://OSTraining.com for full links, other content, and more! ]] Source: https://www.ostraining.com/

Who sponsors Drupal development? (2016-2017 edition)

Last year, Matthew Tift and I examined Drupal.org’s commit data to understand who develops Drupal, how much of that work is sponsored, and where that sponsorship comes from. We published our analysis in a blog post called “Who Sponsors Drupal Development?”. A year later, I wanted to present an update. This year’s report will also cover additional data, including gender and geographical diversity, and project sponsorship. Understanding how an open-source project works is important because it establishes a benchmark for project health and scalability. Scaling an open-source project is a difficult task. As an open-source project’s rate of adoption grows, the number of people that benefit from the project also increases. Often the open-source project also becomes more complex as it expands, which means that the economic reward of helping to improve the project decreases. A recent article on the Bitcoin and Ethereum contributor communities illustrates this disparity perfectly. Ethereum…

Boston Drupal Meetup Considers Distributions

The topic was “Distributions” at the September Boston Drupal Meetup, which was held at Acquia HQ in downtown Boston, and attendees were treated to an unusually comprehensive session. That’s because Drupal Project Lead Dries Buytaert kicked off the meeting by going waaay back, to the very first Drupal “distro.” To back up a bit, a distribution is a combination of Drupal core + modules + configuration + documentation — all bundled up and optimized for a particular purpose or group of users. And the very first distro, according to Dries: DeanSpace, the campaign management system used by Howard Dean during his brief, but notable, campaign for President of the United States in 2004. At the time, Drupal was relatively unknown, and DeanSpace gave the platform a boost. Ever since, Dries said, he’s been bullish about distributions: they help Drupal get into new places, and they reduce the burden of selecting…

Building an Open Source Photo Gallery with Face and Object Recognition (Part 2)

In part one of this two-part series, I explained why my Hackathon team wanted to build an open source photo gallery in Drupal 8, and integrate it with Amazon S3, Rekognition, and Lambda for face and object recognition. In this post, I’ll detail how we built it, then how you can set it up, too! tl;dr: Check out the open source Drupal Photo Gallery project on GitHub, and read through its README for setup instructions so you can build an intelligent photo gallery powered by Drupal and AWS Rekognition. Storing images on a Amazon S3 with the S3FS module Once we had a basic Drupal 8 site running on Acquia Cloud with a ‘Gallery’ content type and an ‘Image’ Media type, we switched the Image’s Media entity image field to store images in Amazon S3 instead of Drupal’s public files directory. The S3 File System module makes this easy. We…

An Introduction to Node.js

Decoupled applications are increasing in popularity as brand experiences continue to move beyond the traditional website. Although your content management system (CMS) might house your content alongside Drupal, it doesn’t just stay put. APIs are making calls to extend that content to things like digital signage, kiosks, mobile … really, the sky’s the limit (as long as there’s an API). Decoupled applications are nothing new; Acquia CTO and Founder Dries Buytaert has been writing about this for at least two years. And we’ve been working with clients, such as Princess Cruises and Powdr, to build decoupled experiences and applications for their customers. Why is decoupled Drupal becoming so popular? We see a number of benefits both from our customers’ perspective as well as from our partners. The primary use case for decoupled relates to when our customers need a single source of truth for content that supports multiple applications. Drupal’s…

How to Display Locations on a Map in Drupal 8

The Geolocation Field Module allows us to store geographical locations (e.g. addresses) as value pairs (latitude, longitude). These values can be rendered in a map with the help of a map marker. Many map markers in a map are useful in a wide variety of cases, for example to show graphically different offices of a bank in a city or to show the cities/countries of a concert tour of your favorite band. The possibilities are endless. In this tutorial we are going to learn how to show the markers in a map of four tourist Attractions in New York City using the Geolocation Field Module and Views.

Reservoir: a Simple Way to Decouple Drupal

Cross-posted from Dries’ blog Decoupled Drupal seems to be taking the world by storm. I’m currently in Sydney, and everyone I talked to so far, including the attendees at the Sydney Drupal User Group, is looking into decoupled Drupal. Digital agencies are experimenting with it on more projects, and there is even a new Decoupled Dev Days conference dedicated to the topic. Roughly eight months ago, we asked ourselves in Acquia’s Office of the CTO whether we could create a “headless” version of Drupal, optimized for integration with a variety of applications, channels and touchpoints. Such a version could help us build bridges with other developer communities working with different frameworks and programming languages, and the JavaScript community in particular. I’ve been too busy with the transition at Acquia to blog about it in real time, but a few months ago, we released Reservoir. It’s a Drupal-based content repository with…
