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.


Should I Re-use Existing Drupal Fields?

Sometimes we’re able to give really clear advice: “Do this!” or “Don’t do that!” This is not going to be one of those blog posts. Drupal gives you the ability to re-use fields. If you have an “Image” field, you could choose to use that same field on every content type on your site. However, it’s not always clear whether re-using fields is a good idea. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn’t. Here’s an overview of the advantages and disadvantages to consider before re-using Drupal fields. Source: https://www.ostraining.com/

State of Drupal presentation (September 2018)

Last week, nearly 1,000 Drupalists gathered in Darmstadt, Germany for Drupal Europe. In good tradition, I presented my State of Drupal keynote. You can watch a recording of my keynote (starting at 4:38) or download a copy of my slides (37 MB). Drupal 8 continues to mature I started my keynote by highlighting this month’s Drupal 8.6.0 release. Drupal 8.6 marks the sixth consecutive Drupal 8 release that has been delivered on time. Compared to one year ago, we have 46 percent more stable Drupal 8 modules. We also have 10 percent more contributors are working on Drupal 8 Core in comparison to last year. All of these milestones indicate that the Drupal 8 is healthy and growing. Next, I gave an update on our strategic initiatives: Make Drupal better for content creators © Paul JohnsonThe expectations of content creators are changing. For Drupal to be successful, we have to…

Drupal 7, 8 and 9

We just released Drupal 8.6.0. With six minor releases behind us, it is time to talk about the long-term future of Drupal 8 (and therefore Drupal 7 and Drupal 9). I’ve written about when to release Drupal 9 in the past, but this time, I’m ready to provide further details. The plan outlined in this blog has been discussed with the Drupal 7 Core Committers, the Drupal 8 Core Committers and the Drupal Security Team. While we feel good about this plan, we can’t plan for every eventuality and we may continue to make adjustments. Drupal 8 will be end-of-life by November 2021 Drupal 8’s innovation model depends on introducing new functionality in minor versions while maintaining backwards compatibility. This approach is working so well that some people have suggested we institute minor releases forever, and never release Drupal 9 at all. However that approach is not feasible. We need…

Building digital backpacks for Syrian refugees

I recently heard a heart-warming story from the University of California, Davis. Last month, UC Davis used Drupal to launch Article 26 Backpack, a platform that helps Syrian Refugees document and share their educational credentials. Over the course of the Syrian civil war, more than 12 million civilians have been displaced. Hundreds of thousands of these refugees are students, who now have to overcome the obstacle of re-entering the workforce or pursuing educational degrees away from home. Article 26 Backpack addresses this challenge by offering refugees a secure way to share their educational credentials with admissions offices, scholarship agencies, and potentials employers. The program also includes face-to-face counseling to provide participants with academic advisory and career development. The UC Davis team launched their Drupal 8 application for Article 26 Backpack in four months. On the site, students can securely store their educational data, such as diplomas, transcripts and resumes. The…

A plan for Drupal and Composer

At DrupalCon Nashville, we launched a strategic initiative to improve support for Composer in Drupal 8. To learn more, you can watch the recording of my DrupalCon Nashville keynote or read the Composer Initiative issue on Drupal.org. While Composer isn’t required when using Drupal core, many Drupal site builders use it as the preferred way of assembling websites (myself included). A growing number of contributed modules also require the use of Composer, which increases the need to make Composer easier to use with Drupal. The first step of the Composer Initiative was to develop a plan to simplify Drupal’s Composer experience. Since DrupalCon Nashville, Mixologic, Mile23, Bojanz, Webflo, and other Drupal community members have worked on this plan. I was excited to see that last week, they shared their proposal. The first phase of the proposal is focused on a series of changes in the main Drupal core repository. The…

Introducing the Acquia Decoupled Starter Kit for React

About the Decoupled Starter Kit The Professional Services team at Acquia is thrilled to announce the first release of the Acquia Decoupled Starter Kit for React. The Starter Kit includes three separate applications to demonstrate various Headless Drupal design patterns: a React application, a GraphQL application, and a Headless Lightning Drupal website. Each application was created to work in tandem with each other, but also as a collection of boilerplate tools for your personal applications. The applications were developed by Jason Enter & Steve Worley as open source projects and are ready to download today! Why was the Decoupled Starter Kit created?    The Decoupled Starter Kit was created to help developers kickstart their understanding of the technical benefits of harmonizing modern JavaScript technologies when using Drupal as an API content store. The architectures were intentionally designed to walk developers through common scenarios with modern-day technologies. Each of the examples…

How to use Drupal 8's off-canvas dialog in your modules

The goal of this tutorial is to show how to use Drupal 8.5’s new off-canvas dialog in your own Drupal modules. The term “off-canvas” refers to the ability for a dialog to slide in from the side of the page, in addition to resizing the page so that no part of it is obstructed by the dialog. You can see the off-canvas dialog in action in this animated GIF: This new Drupal 8.5 feature allows us to improve the content authoring and site building experience by turning Drupal outside-in. We can use the off-canvas dialog to enable the content creator or site builder to seamlessly edit content or configuration in-place, and see any changes take effect immediately. There is no need to navigate to the administrative backend to make edits. As you’ll see in this tutorial, it’s easy to use the off-canvas dialog in your own Drupal modules. I use…
