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.


A Specification Tool for Drupal 8

Revered management thinker Peter Drucker once wrote, “If you can’t replicate something because you don’t understand it, then it really hasn’t been invented; it’s only been done.” In many ways content modeling in Drupal has been done without being invented. There is no accepted method of analysis, no common format for specification, no process for change management, no best practices for testing. Consequently outcomes are highly variable. For this reason, we’re developing a discipline for content modeling at Acquia. It’s drastically reducing both costs and defect rates for us, and we’re sharing it with you in this post. Introducing the Drupal Spec Tool The cornerstone of the discipline is something we call the Drupal Spec Tool, consisting of a spreadsheet and automated testing infrastructure. Why a Specification Tool? A standard specification format is an industry’s answer to the difficulty of validating, communicating, and conceptualizing complex solutions. Every professional domain has…

Decoupling Drupal 8 Core: Web Services in Core and the Serialization Module

If you have decided to decouple Drupal, after conducting due diligence with regard to assessing the risks and rewards of decoupling Drupal and understanding how best to decouple Drupal in 2018, it is essential to understand how web services in Drupal 8 core and their dependencies undergird all decoupled Drupal architectures, regardless of the application you are implementing. In this Experience Express column, we’ll explore the process of decoupling Drupal through the lens of core modules in Drupal 8. In Drupal 8 core, four key modules, when enabled, collectively facilitate the provisioning of RESTful APIs out of the box: HAL, Serialization, REST, and Basic Authentication. Some of these modules provide foundations that underpin important contributed modules also useful for Drupal such as JSON API, RELAXed Web Services, and GraphQL. For instance, while the JSON API contributed module depends on Serialization, it does not depend on REST. After examining these modules,…

Give a Unique Look to Your Google Maps in Drupal

Google Maps don’t look appealing or pretty by default when you embed them in your Drupal content. Nor do they always nicely coordinate with your site look and feel. What if you found a way to give them a custom design? For example – your own color? In this tutorial, you will learn how to give your Drupal Google Maps a custom style with the Styled Google Map contrib module. Source: https://www.ostraining.com/

Managing Your Drupal 8 Migration

In this post, we’ll begin to talk about the development considerations of actual website code migration and other technological details. In these exercises, we’re assuming that you’re moving from Drupal 6 or 7 to Drupal 8. In a later post, I will examine ways to move other source formats into Drupal 8 – including CSV files, non-Drupal content management systems, or database dumps from weird or proprietary frameworks.

A Look Inside Decoupled Architecture: The Engage Digital Application

“The most compelling advantage of API-first Drupal is not the way it negates Drupal’s presentation features, it’s the way it enables the capabilities of the CMS to power multiple applications and devices. Leveraging Drupal as a centralized data source enables authors to deliver content to multiple devices outside of Drupal, while leaning on the strength of the CMS editorial workflow and patterns.” — Jason Enter, Manager Technical Services, Acquia. Every year, Acquia hosts a customer conference, Engage, to showcase creative, forward-thinking digital experiences that Acquia customers and partners are creating today, fueled by the power of cloud and open source technologies. For the 2017 edition, Acquia’s Professional Services team set out to build a digital application that would control the content displayed on digital signage throughout the conference center. The technical goal was to leverage the real-time rendering of Node.js, along with the editorial experience of Drupal. The architectural workflow…

Shopping with augmented reality

Last spring, Acquia Labs built a chatbot prototype that helps customers choose recipes and plan shopping lists with dietary restrictions and preferences in mind. The ability to interact with a chatbot assistant rather than having to research and plan everything on your own can make grocery shopping much easier. We wanted to take this a step further and explore how augmented reality could also improve the shopping experience. The demo video above features how a shopper named Alex can interact with an augmented reality application to remove friction from her shopping experience at Freshland Market (a fictional grocery store). The Freshland Market mobile application not only guides Alex through her shopping list but also helps her to make more informed shopping decisions through augmented reality overlays. It superimposes useful information such as price, user ratings and recommended recipes, over shopping items detected by a smartphone camera. The application can personalize…

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…

Introducing Reservoir, a Distribution for Decoupling Drupal

Decoupling Drupal can be arduous, whether you’re developing a Drupal-backed front end or configuring Drupal to be an ideal content repository for decoupled applications. Adding to the challenge is the fact that there is a lack of definitive starting points, boilerplates, and best practices. But the issue isn’t simply that there are so many competing approaches; it’s also that there doesn’t yet exist an easy starting point for non-Drupal developers who solely want to configure Drupal to be the back end for their front-end applications and get on with development. Acquia’s Office of the CTO is pleased to announce the release of Reservoir, an experimental Drupal distribution developed by Wim Leers (coordinator of Drupal’s API-first initiative) and Ted Bowman. Beyond comprising an exceptional starting point for any decoupled Drupal implementation, it is also designed to on-board developers of all backgrounds: a decoupled Drupal distribution and optimal back end for every…
