Spaceship! Building with Legos and Blocks in Drupal 7 and 8

My son Jett is a total Lego genius. He can take a pile of random blocks and design something symmetrical, dynamic, unique and wonderful. Something that only he could have imagined.  I like to think of building Drupal sites like building with Legos.  You have all these standard pieces, and when you put them together, you get something usable, dynamic and wonderful.  The Lego analogy is especially relevant to this post because we’ll be talking about Drupal “blocks”. In the Drupal Content Management System, “blocks” are little pieces of supporting content used primarily for sidebars.  Our clients’ use of blocks is most often to showcase promotions or call-outs to specific content on their sites.  The Drupal back-end lets you create custom blocks on-the-fly that contain text or HTML, or you can write a custom module that will output blocks with custom content.  Many contributed modules also create blocks for specific…

Free Psychology Courses

I signed up for a few of these and have been getting them in my inbox daily (at least this one sends them daily. My inbox looks like this: Daily drips…! It’s been kind of fun and I’ve learned a good bit. If I were to do my undergraduate degree all over I would have probably gone into psychology. I was already building software and eventually failed out of the CompSci program anyway. But, I could have gained a much better appreciation for behavioral science, society, and relationships in psychology, which is pretty much 100% of the game when it comes to life. These courses are pretty cool. The post Free Psychology Courses appeared first on John Saddington. Source:

Zach Leatherman on the weirdnesses of numeric inputs. A new hero is born: Luckily, the web standards people have recognized this mess and have standardized an appetizing alternative: the inputmode attribute. inputmode lets you directly specify which type of keyboard to use, independent of the type attribute value. This new attribute isn’t supported anywhere yet, though. They’ve also create a new plugin to help normalized numeric input behavior.

5 steps to creating frustration-free Android test devices

How to setup devices so that manual testing doesn’t crush your soulA few days ago, I picked up one of my test devices to try out some new code. I couldn’t believe how frustrating it was.I wasn’t logged into the right accounts. I didn’t have the right apps installed. By the time I finished testing, I couldn’t even remember how to reproduce the bug.And like any Android programmer, my testing frustration was magnified because we support numerous OS versions/devices.To save my sanity, I built a system for a unified, predictable setup on every device. Here’s how to do it.1. Install the OS versions you supportDepending on what API levels you support, ideally you have a 1–1 device to API ratio. This isn’t always possible of course, but it’s helpful.So first things first — take an inventory of your devices and which ones support which OS versions. Then examine what your customers use the most and optimize for those scenarios.With that in…

Roy Scholten: Answering the Drupal Why

The basis for knowing what to focus on for evolving Drupal core is learning about what people want to do with it. Testing the initial experience of core as a whole has had our main attention so far. Now with focussed initiatives (content workflow, media handling, outside in, layouts,…), we’re adding experimental features with the assumed requirement that we validate and improve them trough feedback from usability testing. So, we could (should!) create a more regular schedule of more smaller instead of few bigger usability test sessions. What’s our version of getting out of the building and increasing our exposure? What would it look like if we did test every 6 weeks? Produce testing scripts for each initiative. These can be reused, eventually updated where needed. Every 6 weeks we run those tests for each initiative. We learn what works, what needs to be improved. Initiative teams can prioritize fixing…
