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.


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…

Installing Commerce 2.x without Composer, with Ludwig

The average Drupal Commerce site depends on many external PHP libraries. Address needs commerceguys/addressing and Commerce needs commerceguys/intl. GeoIP needs geoip2/geoip2 and Search API Solr needs solarium/solarium. Each payment gateway needs a matching SDK. These libraries must be downloaded separately, because license constraints prevent us from committing their code to drupal.org itself. For the past 5 years, the primary and only way to download and use PHP libraries has been Composer, a command line tool. Composer works per-project, meaning each Drupal install has one folder for all PHP libraries it requires, regardless of which module needs which. This allows Composer to detect and prevent conflicts such as incompatible library versions. Composer also recursively resolves dependencies, automatically installing and updating packages required by other packages. This is a major benefit to Drupal site administrators compared to previous tools like Drush Make. However, Drupal’s reliance on the Composer-generated autoloader makes it impossible…

Managing Drupal Sites with Composer

Talking through the growing pains of using Drupal with Composer dependency management at DrupalCon Baltimore. Drupal gets better when companies, organizations, and individuals build or fix something they need and then share it with the rest of us. Open source technologies become better, stronger, and smarter when others take it upon themselves to make a positive difference contributing their knowledge, time, and energy to it. Acquia is proud to play a part, alongside thousands of others, in making tomorrow’s Drupal better than today’s. One of the people making a difference is Jeff Geerling. Jeff Geerling (geerlingguy), Senior Technical Architect at Acquia, is a prolific and valued open source contributor. He has 150+ open source projects around both the Ansible and Drupal projects. His Drupal modules are used by almost 100,000 sites. I spoke with him about the BoF session he set up at DrupalCon Baltimore, Managing Drupal Sites with Composer.…

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/

Drupal 8 turns one!

Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of Drupal 8. On this day last year we celebrated the release of Drupal 8 with over 200 parties around the world. It’s a project we worked on for almost five years, bringing the work of more than 3,000 contributors together to make Drupal more flexible, innovative, scalable, and easier to use. To celebrate tomorrow’s release-versary, I wanted to look back at a few of the amazing Drupal 8 projects that have launched in the past year. 1. NBA.com The NBA is one of the largest professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada. Millions of fans around the globe rely on the NBA’s Drupal 8 website to livestream games, read stats and standings, and stay up to date on their favorite team.

Content and Commerce: a big opportunity for Drupal

Last week Acquia announced a partnership with Magento. I wanted to use this opportunity to explain why I am excited about this. I also want to take a step back and share what I see is a big opportunity for both Drupal, Acquia and commerce platforms. State of the commerce market First, it is important to understand what is one of the most important market trends in online commerce: consumers are demanding better experiences when they shop online. In particular, commerce teams are looking to leverage vastly greater levels of content throughout the customer’s shopping journey – editorials, lookbooks, tutorials, product demonstration videos, mood videos, testimonials, etc. At the same time, commerce platforms have not added many tools for rich content management. Instead they have been investing in capabilities needed to compete in the commerce market; order management systems (OMS), omnichannel shopping (point of sale, mobile, desktop, kiosk, etc), improved…

Personalization takes flight with the new Acquia Lift

Last week, we launched a new version of Acquia Lift, our personalization tool. Acquia Lift learns about your visitors’ interests, preferences and context and uses that information to personalize and contextualize their experience. After more than a year of hard work, Acquia Lift has many new and powerful capabilities. In this post, I want to highlight some of the biggest improvements. Intuitive user experience To begin, Acquia Lift’s new user interface is based on the outside-in principle. In the case of Acquia Lift, this means that the user interface primarily takes the form of a sidebar that can slide out from the edge of the page when needed. From there, users can drag and drop content into the page and get an instant preview of how the content would look. From the sidebar, you can also switch between different user segments to preview the site for different users. Personalization rules…
