Drupal Commerce 2.x: 2017 in review

Now that 2017 is over and we’re back from our well deserved holidays, it’s time to look at what the Drupal Commerce community accomplished over the past year. There is no doubt that Drupal Commerce is one of the largest and most active projects in the Drupal community. The #commerce channel is now the most active channel on the Drupal Slack, with 550 members. Over a hundred modules have received contributions from several hundred contributors working for dozens of different agencies. Just a few months after the initial stable release, there are over 2000 reported installations with new case studies appearing every week! Let’s take a closer look.

Drupal Commerce 2.0 Wisdom from Acro Media

If you’ve been following the Acro Media blog, you probably know that the digital agency (and Acquia partner), based in Kelowna, BC, Canada, has a special interest in Drupal Commerce. So with the recent launch of Drupal Commerce 2.0, it made sense to check in with them. After all, Arco team are core maintainers for modules such as Commerce Migrate, Commerce POS, and a host of others. Leading up to the 2.0 release of Drupal Commerce, Arco had 20 team members contributing a total of 60 contrib credits. In the past 3 months, they’ve been credited on over 270 issues. They’ve also been publishing content steady. Their aim seems to be to not only to get the word out about 2.0, but to help educate other developers, agencies and current and potential customers. So here, all in one place, a collection of Arco Drupal Commerce Knowledge. Migrating Drupal Commerce 1…

Next steps for Drupal Commerce documentation

With the Drupal Commerce 2.0 release slated for September 20th, we are making an effort to provide excellent documentation so that our implementers and end users can work with Drupal Commerce efficiently. We also want to encourage contribution at all levels, such as documentation. I am happy to announce we have moved from using Sphinx, a Restructured Text documentation tool, to GravCMS. GravCMS is a PHP based flat-file CMS, which uses Markdown. Why the change? We found that while Sphinx provided robust features, it also added a high entry barrier for documentation contributors: Tags:  Planet Commerce 2.x Source: Reposted from: drupalcommerce.org

See what’s new in Drupal Commerce 2.0-rc1

Eight months ago we launched the first beta version of Commerce 2.x for Drupal 8. Since then we’ve made 304 code commits by 58 contributors, and we’ve seen dozens of attractive, high-performing sites go live. We entered the release candidate phase this month with the packaging of Commerce 2.0-rc1 (release notes), the final part of our long and fruitful journey to a full 2.0. Introducing a new Promotions UI: Some of the most exciting updates this Summer center around our promotions system. This work represents a huge leap forward from Commerce 1.x, as we’ve made promotions first class citizens in core. They power a variety of discount types and coupons, and now that they are in core we can ensure the systems are designed to look and work well on both the front end and back end. Read on to learn more about what’s new in promotions, payment, taxes, and…

What's Happening With Drupal Commerce in Drupal 8?

In the last few weeks, there’s been some controversy in the Drupal community. Acquia launched a major partnership with Magento, which has left some people wondering about the support for Drupal Commerce. There had already been some nervousness, because Drupal Commerce 2 has been slow to arrive in Drupal 8. So, what’s happening with Drupal Commerce? First, I would recommend you read Dries’ post on Acquia’s plans for e-commerce. Next, I’d highly recommend that you watch this video from Ryan Szarma, one of the lead developers of Drupal Commerce. This video was recorded at Drupal 8 Day. Ryan covers the history, architecture, and features of Drupal Commerce 2 on Drupal 8. There was a lot of interest in Ryan’s presentation, with over 30 minutes of questions afterwards. Source: https://www.ostraining.com/

Breaking Bad Drupal with Best Practices

The Pixeldust approach to every site utilizes the latest stable Drupal core, savvy content architecture, a fully responsive and dynamic theme, and strict adherence to site building and Drupal coding best practices for functionality requirements. The division between layout and content is a core concept of all content management systems, and in architecting any site, we build an intuitive, content-first, site architecture. Our approach is to translate content ideation into semantically scoped Drupal entities resulting in extensible, future-facing, content structures. Theming and layout are completely separate from content, utilizing dynamic templates that fluidly scale into theme requirements, rather than dedicated content-type based design. As our site building best-practices, this approach ensures the site is easy to administer, optimized for SEO, and malleable enough to handle feature augmentation or refinement. Building functionality and workflows from stable, contributed modules will guarantee the site is easily updatable and will scale to incorporate new…

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: https://john.do/

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…
