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.

Decoupled Drupal Authentication with OAuth 2.0

Perhaps the most critical component of any decoupled Drupal architecture is a robust authentication mechanism that protects data transmitted between a Drupal site and API consumers like JavaScript applications and native mobile applications. While Drupal core makes available HTTP Basic Authentication and cookie-based authentication, both easy to use, neither of these approaches is sufficiently secure when it comes to best practices. Fortunately, the Drupal contributed ecosystem contains several highly useful modules that leverage more recent authentication standards like OAuth 2.0 Bearer Token and JSON Web Tokens (JWT), both of which are seeing wide use in the Drupal community among decoupled Drupal practitioners. In the next two installments of Experience Express, we take a breather from voyaging to conferences and inspect authentication best practices in decoupled Drupal, starting with OAuth 2.0. OAuth 2.0 Bearer Token authentication At present, OAuth represents one of the most commonly found authentication methods as an open…

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…

We made Drupal a lot easier to evaluate

Seven months ago, Matthew Grasmick published an article describing how hard it is to install Drupal. His article included the following measurements for creating a new application on his local machine, across four different PHP frameworks: Platform Clicks Time Drupal 20+ 15:00+ Symfony 3 1:55 WordPress 7 7:51 Laravel 3 17:28 The results from Matthew’s blog were clear: Drupal is too hard to install. It required more than 15 minutes and 20 clicks to create a simple site. Seeing these results prompted me to launch a number of initiatives to improve the evaluator experience at DrupalCon Nashville. Here is the slide from my DrupalCon Nashville presentation: A lot has happened between then and now: We improved the download page to improve the discovery experience on drupal.org We added an Evaluator Guide to Drupal.org We added a quick-start command to Drupal 8.6 We added the Umami demo profile to Drupal 8.6…

CSS Shape Editors

Firefox 62 is shipping out of beta on September 5th. The big notable thing for CSS developers is that it will now support the shape-outside property with polygon(), circle(), and ellipse(), joining Chrome and Safari. What will be nice about the Firefox release (well, it’s kinda already nice if you use something like Firefox Developer Edition which is already on 62), is that it has a shape editor built right into DevTools. Chrome supports shape-outside as well, but there is no native DevTools helper for working with them. Thankfully, Razvan Caliman has a Chrome Plugin that does a great job. (Razvan contributed to the Firefox version as well, I hear.) I enjoy using shape-outside as it can add real visual interest to a page that isn’t nearly overdone or trendy just yet. Plus, in a lot of cases, it doesn’t matter whether it’s supported because the float behaves as a…

10 to 20 Years Old

Some fantastic advice for those who are 10 to 20 years old (via Patrick Collison): Go deep on things. Become an expert. In particular, try to go deep on multiple things. (To varying degrees, I tried to go deep on languages, programming, writing, physics, math. Some of those stuck more than others.) One of the main things you should try to achieve by age 20 is some sense for which kinds of things you enjoy doing. This probably won’t change a lot throughout your life and so you should try to discover the shape of that space as quickly as you can. Don’t stress out too much about how valuable the things you’re going deep on are… but don’t ignore it either. It should be a factor you weigh but not by itself dispositive. To the extent that you enjoy working hard, do. Subject to that constraint, it’s not clear that the returns to…

A Basic WooCommerce Setup to Sell T-Shirts

WooCommerce is a powerful eCommerce solution for WordPress sites. If you’re like me, and like working with WordPress and have WordPress-powered sites already, WooCommerce is a no-brainer for helping you sell things online on those sites. But even if you don’t already have a WordPress site, WooCommerce is so good I think it would make sense to spin up a WordPress site so you could use it for your eCommerce solution. Personally, I’ve used WooCommerce a number of times to sell things. Most recently, I’ve used it to sell T-Shirts (and hats) over on CodePen. We use WordPress already to power our blog, documentation, and podcast. Makes perfect sense to use WordPress for the store as well! What I think is notable about our WooCommerce installation at CodePen is how painless it was, while doing everything we need it to do. I’d say it was a half-day job with maybe…

Recent Videos!

I’ve recorded a decent number of videos lately, most of which are pairing with someone and digging into a topic as I glean as much information as I can! Several of these are sponsored, in that they are a part of an advertising package. Hopefully, you know me well enough that I don’t work with companies I don’t like or that sell something I don’t think you’d be good buying, but hey, heads up. Phil Hawksworth and I do a couple of videos introducing the power of Netlify Sarah Drasner and I get into coding with Vue I do a little explanation of one reason I really like Jetpack: security David Wells and I talk about serverless technology in a two-parter I introduce CodePen to the gang at freeCodeCamp The post Recent Videos! appeared first on CSS-Tricks.
