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.


PHP Notices, Warnings and Errors on Your Drupal Site

Websites will run into problems. Whether you’re using Drupal or any other software, there will be problems at some point. Drupal runs on PHP and when PHP has problems, it reports them to you.

Drupal 8 Module (Distro!) of the Week: Panopoly

This week: The Drupal 8 Panopoly distribution // Drupal 8 has more and more features available practically every day. Alongside module migrations and new projects, the Drupal community’s latest major release also offers new ways of solving common problems. Some functionality has moved to Drupal core and new modules have taken up the torch along the way. In this series, the Acquia Developer Center is profiling useful solutions–modules, themes, distros, and more–available for Drupal 8. I chatted with the maintainer of the Panopoly distro and co-founder of myDropWizard.com, David Snopek (dsnopek). He calls himself “a Drupal developer, consultant, and entrepreneur.” He contributes a lot to Drupal and its community: as a member of the Drupal Security Team, maintaining or co-maintaining “20-ish” projects on Drupal.org, and co-organizing Drupal414, the local Drupal meetup in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. “Panopoly is a success story of the open source contribution long tail: lots of people giving…

Ektron to Drupal Conversion: Content Migration

In January of 2015, Accel-KKR, a private equity firm, combined Ektron and the Swedish company Episerver into a single company and CMS platform. This has caused many organizations to choose to migrate off the Ektron platform and onto a CMS like Drupal. Two factors are driving this trend: the high cost of an Episerver license upgrade, and the fact that the open source landscape has evolved significantly over the prior decade, to the point where many enterprise organizations (from private and public corporations to government entities) have embraced Drupal and the open source community. When making this kind of migration, there are several factors to keep in mind which require proper planning and careful consideration. An upcoming Acquia Tech Talk, 3 Tips for a Successful Ektron to Drupal Conversion, will give you a good idea what you need to know to pull off an Ektron-to-Drupal migration, and it’s coming right…

Decoupled Drupal with JSON API and Ember: Consuming Drupal with Ember Adapters and Models

Among the most crucial steps in architecting decoupled Drupal-backed applications is to bridge the gap between Drupal and the designated front end so that the latter can receive and manipulate data on the Drupal data repository via API calls. For some frameworks, this can be a rather tedious exercise in navigating the server-side APIs and crafting the correct requests on the client side. Luckily, with JSON API now proposed as a core experimental module for Drupal 8, the tightrope walk between Drupal and Ember is about to become more of a cinch. In the first installment of this tutorial series, we installed Drupal and configured it as a data service that exposes content entities through JSON API. We also installed and set up Ember and examined some of its key components up close, including the Ember software stack, templates, routes, and components. In this second part, we’ll dive into how…

Buytaert.net now on Drupal 8

Some of my readers may have noticed that I recently upgraded this blog from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8. You might be wondering why it took me so long, and the truth is that while I love working on my site, it’s hard to justify spending much time on it. I did most of the work on my commute to work, cramped in a small seat on the train to the tune of the rumbling train carriage. I finally pushed the site live during Thanksgiving weekend. Nothing like seeing the Drupal migration tool run on your computer to the smell of the turkey cooking in the oven. The comfortable atmosphere of Thanksgiving — and the glass of wine that was sitting on my desk — made it all the more fun. While my blog has been around for more than a decade, it isn’t very complex; I have approximately 1,250…

Decoupled Drupal with Ember: Introducing Ember and JSON API

Decoupled Drupal has long been an approach touted by some in the front-end contingent of the Drupal community to achieve goals such as a better user experience, a more modern front-end developer experience, and clearer separation of concerns. Though I’ve written previously on the risks and rewards of fully decoupling Drupal and a steadily proliferating approach known as progressive decoupling, many of us have already ascertained through our own cost-benefit analyses that decoupling Drupal entirely is the appropriate course of action for our needs. Not solely because of its open-source ethos and welcoming community, Ember is a prime candidate to underpin Drupal-backed JavaScript applications due to its reach, its coverage, and its ease of use. In this two-part series intended to help you attain escape velocity quickly, we’ll explore the inner workings of Ember, foundational concepts of Ember’s ecosystem, how to decouple Drupal with an Ember front end, and what…

Improving Drupal 8's API-first: JSON API and OAuth2?

Among the most important initiatives for Drupal 8’s future is the “API-first initiative”, whose goal is to improve Drupal’s web services capabilities for building decoupled applications. In my previous blog posts, I evaluated the current state of, outlined a vision for, and mapped a path forward for Drupal’s web services solutions. In the five months since my last update, web services in Drupal have moved forward substantially in functionality and ease of use. This blog post discusses the biggest improvements. An overview of the key building blocks to create web services in Drupal. Out of the box, Drupal core can expose raw JSON structures reflecting its internal storage, or it can expose them in HAL. Note: Waterwheel has an optional dependency on JSON API if JSON API methods are invoked through Waterwheel.js.Core REST improvements With the release of Drupal 8.2, the core REST API now supports important requirements for decoupled…
