With everything Google has been doing to enhance website efficiency lately (read: Google Site Performance and Google Caffeine), it comes as no surprise that they’ve introduced another layer to the web performance fold. Launched yesterday, Google Browser Size aims to help Drupal Drupal Web Designers and developers get the most out of a website by showing the parts of a site a user can see without scrolling.
Urbanspoon It happens to all of us: you’re hungry, but can’t really decide what to eat. Or you want to try something new, but don’t want to pay for a bad meal. Luckily, your phone can help. Urbanspoon is a restaurant app designed to help you decide where to eat. Presented as a slot machine widget, Urbanspoon reads your location, lets you pick the type of food you’re looking for, and then tells you to shake your iPhone for a restaurant pick. Not happy with the results? Shake it again. Results can be filtered by neighborhood, cuisine, price, distance, popularity, no chains and the meal you’re looking for. Urbanspoon also provides reviews from bloggers, newspapers and other users.
Pixeldust put a lot of digital mojo into gattisjingle.com. Utilizing a musician’s flyer feel, we designed and developed a clean microsite that would ultimately serve as a bridge for the 40th anniversary, remind Austinites that Gatti’s started in Austin, and generate excitement and interest among new and existing customers. And they wanted to conquer social media.
Artifacts of Existence is a collection of work by David Brown featuring a non-fiction novel, screenplay and ‘inside Hollywood’ documentary. Pixeldust designed and developed an earthy site that would help him release his work on the web. The site also features free downloads of work from local artists.
Pixeldust’s challenge was to build an elegant and scalable site giving Mattress Pro an equal presence to Sealy and other large mattress manufacturers. Pixeldust designed a brand-new identity and sleek interface that incorporated Flash and a content management system. The overall result proved to be a huge success: the website played a big role in Mattress Pro’s successful merger negotiations with Mattress Firm.
A few weeks ago, we had A Survey! Is Drupal Hard?First of all, thank you for taking the time to answer (even though we had a short-lived technical snafu!). At myDropWizard, we believe in transparency and openness, so I’m going to share the unfiltered data with you – as well as what my thoughts are in interpreting this non-scientific study.The DataSome IssuesMany of those answering would be biased towards DrupalThe choices were somewhat arbitrary, and no doubt some were left outThere was an initial bug in the survey keeping some good data outThe choice “It’s about what I would expect” is probably better labeled as something more along the lines of “an average web developer should be able to accomplish their needs in a reasonable amount of time”AnalysisSo, there were plenty of flaws in the data, but that won’t keep me from drawing a few conclusions – and I’m anxious to…

Answering the most commonly asked question about Configuration Management in Drupal 8; and a preview of our DrupalCon training.This post is an excerpt from the topics covered by our DrupalCon Dublin training: Drupal 8 Development – Workflows and Tools. For the last two years we have been giving trainings and presentations at various Drupal events about configuration management and its new workflows in Drupal 8. One of the recurring questions has been: How do I keep some configuration from being deployed? For example the devel module and its configuration? Until now we have answered to use drush with the –skip-modules flag and then to gitignore the configuration for devel. But then you can’t share the development configuration and the process is error prone when there are more modules and other configuration items that depend on the configuration you gitignore. For some simpler cases where configuration needs to be different between…

Over the weekend, Drupal 8.2 beta was released. One of the reasons why I’m so excited about this release is that it ships with “more outside-in”. In an “outside-in experience”, you can click anything on the page, edit its configuration in place without having to navigate to the administration back end, and watch it take effect immediately. This kind of on-the-fly editorial experience could be a game changer for Drupal’s usability. When I last discussed turning Drupal outside-in, we were still in the conceptual stages, with mockups illustrating the concepts. Since then, those designs have gone through multiple rounds of feedback from Drupal’s usability team and a round of user testing led by Cheppers. This study identified some issues and provided some insights which were incorporated into subsequent designs. Two policy changes we introduced in Drupal 8 — semantic versioning and experimental modules — have fundamentally changed Drupal’s innovation model…

Inspired Magazine Inspired Magazine – creativity & inspiration dailyYour first thoughts of what an online store should look like quite naturally might be along the lines of something unique and highly innovative, i.e., a store, the likes of which its visitors have never seen before. Innovation has its place in many types of website design, but that is not necessary the truth in the case of eCommerce websites – and here is why.Five things you should take into account to build a winner:A little innovation may be good, but familiarity is much better for an online store. Heed Krug’s first law of usability: “Don’t make me think.”, and you’ll be much better off. Don’t make visitors have to try to figure out how to get what they want.Keep your homepage banner simple. Users aren’t interested in a flashy banner while shopping. Overdoing your home page design can make your store…
