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…

Arsenal using Drupal

As a Belgian sports fan, I will always be a loyal to the Belgium National Football Team. However, I am willing to extend my allegiance to Arsenal F.C. because they recently launched their new site in Drupal 8! As one of the most successful teams of England’s Premier League, Arsenal has been lacing up for over 130 years. On the new Drupal 8 site, Arsenal fans can access news, club history, ticket services, and live match results. This is also a great example of collaboration with two Drupal companies working together – Inviqa in the UK and Phase2 in the US. If you want to see Drupal 8 on Arsenal’s roster, check out https://www.arsenal.com! Source: Dries Buytaert www.buytaert.net

Playing with Shadow DOM

About a year ago, Twitter announced it would start displaying embedded tweets with the shadow DOM rather than an <iframe>, if the browser supports shadom DOM? Why? Well, speed is one reason. They say: Much lower memory utilization in the browser, and much faster render times. Tweets will appear faster and pages will scroll more smoothly, even when displaying multiple Tweets on the same page. Why the choice? Why is it necessary to use either iframes or shadow DOM? Why not just inject the content onto the page? It’s a totally understandable need for control. An embedded Tweet should look and behave just exactly like an embedded Tweet. They don’t want to worry about the styles of the page bleeding in and messing that up. An <iframe> makes style scoping very easy. Point the src of the iframe at a URL that displays what you want an embedded tweet to…

Intro to Hoodie and React

Let’s take a look at Hoodie, the “Back-End as a Service” (BaaS) built specifically for front-end developers. I want to explain why I feel like it is a well-designed tool and deserves more exposure among the spectrum of competitors than it gets today. I’ve put together a demo that demonstrates some of the key features of the service, but I feel the need to first set the scene for its use case. Feel free to jump over to the demo repo if you want to get the code. Otherwise, join me for a brief overview. Setting the Scene It is no secret that JavaScript is eating the world these days and with its explosion in popularity, an ever-expanding ecosystem of tooling has arisen. The ease of developing a web app has skyrocketed in recent years thanks to these tools. Developer tools Prettier and ESLint give us freedom to write how…

Acquia Dev Scan: Taming Expanding Databases in Drupal 8, Reservoir on DrupalEasy, and a Conference for Decoupled Drupal Developers

When Acquia-related developer content starts piling up around the Web, it’s time for an Acquia Dev Scan. In this edition: Taming Expanding Databases in Drupal 8, Reservoir on DrupalEasy, and a Conference for Decoupled Drupal Developers Dealing with expanding cache_render tables in Drupal 8 There are a number of scenarios in Drupal 8 where you might notice your MySQL database size starts growing incredibly fast, even if you’re not adding any content. Jeff Geerling, Senior Technical Architect, Acquia, figured out that most of the time the problem stems from a exponentially-increasing-in-size cache_render table. After talking about this problem with a number of colleagues, he decided to write a blog post to cover common scenarios, as well as short and long-term fixes if you run into this issue. Hence: Dealing with Drupal 8 and a giant cache_render table. The DrupalEasy podcast focuses on Reservoir Ebullient DrupalEasy podcast host Mike Anello spent…

Top 5 Lessons I’ve Learned Working with Drupal 8

Now that Drupal 8 is “production ready,” and agencies are ready to expand their capabilities by building in Drupal 8, clients are asking about it, and the community’s focus has shifted to developing for it. Drupal 8’s predecessor, Drupal 7, has been around since January 2011, which means that by late 2016 everyone working in Drupal was very familiar with the ins-and-outs of how Drupal 7 worked. Writing modules, using the hook system and preprocess functions, figuring out templating and theming quirks — it all became second nature to us. We’d mastered views and webforms, and some of us had written a couple of tricky migrations. In short, we’d all grown comfortable with Drupal 7 — and then along came Drupal 8. With the arrival of Drupal 8, many of those core components — on which we’d built many sites, and a living — have changed dramatically. We are now…

Going to the Mattresses

Illustration by Nate OttoTim Masters describes himself as “just a mattress maker,” but that belies the business acumen he’s gained over decades of building and selling beds. Tim’s store in the Chicago suburbs, Quality Sleep Shop, opened in 1969 and has held its own against the proliferation of private equity-backed mattress corporations and chain stores. As Big Mattress has grown more complex, churning out endless permutations of confusingly named products, Tim has embraced simplicity.https://medium.com/media/d8c44f18597d8f8bc1d4c0722ba19989/hrefTranscriptWAILIN WONG: Hi everyone, it’s Wailin.

More Gotchas Getting Inline SVG Into Production—Part II

The following is a guest post by Rob Levin and Chris Rumble. Rob and Chris both work on the product design team at Mavenlink. Rob is also creator and host of the SVG Immersion Podcast and wrote the original 5 Gotchas article back in ’14. Chris, is a UI and Motion Designer/Developer based out of San Francisco.

Drupal is Good?

Before joining Viget I built websites on Drupal for Congressmen and Fortune 500 companies. Those websites were good, and they’re visited by millions of people. I’ve been to Drupal Cons, I’ve been to Drupal meet-ups, and I’ve given presentations on Drupal topics. I wouldn’t have a career as a developer without Drupal, but I wouldn’t recommend Drupal. “So if not Drupal, then what?” It depends. Anyone who says they know the solution before they know the problem is lying, wrong, or guessing. At Viget, we can figure out what the best solution is to a problem. That solution may be a static website, a solution with Contentful, a Craft site, a custom-built CMS, or something we haven’t thought of yet. It depends on the project. We’ve written about this before. We have come up with reasons to go off-the-shelf or to go custom-built. We have compared off-the-shelf CMS’s and we…
