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.

Adding a MailChimp Newsletter to Your Drupal Site

Finding easy to use modules for Drupal 8 is not always easy. Often they haven’t been migrated from Drupal 7. Or they are still in beta. Or the documentation is either poor or non-existent. That’s why finding the MailChimp module was a true delight. In this tutorial, you will learn how to use this module to integrate your Drupal 8 site with MailChimp newsletter service.

Shopping with augmented reality

Last spring, Acquia Labs built a chatbot prototype that helps customers choose recipes and plan shopping lists with dietary restrictions and preferences in mind. The ability to interact with a chatbot assistant rather than having to research and plan everything on your own can make grocery shopping much easier. We wanted to take this a step further and explore how augmented reality could also improve the shopping experience. The demo video above features how a shopper named Alex can interact with an augmented reality application to remove friction from her shopping experience at Freshland Market (a fictional grocery store). The Freshland Market mobile application not only guides Alex through her shopping list but also helps her to make more informed shopping decisions through augmented reality overlays. It superimposes useful information such as price, user ratings and recommended recipes, over shopping items detected by a smartphone camera. The application can personalize…

Reservoir: a Simple Way to Decouple Drupal

Cross-posted from Dries’ blog Decoupled Drupal seems to be taking the world by storm. I’m currently in Sydney, and everyone I talked to so far, including the attendees at the Sydney Drupal User Group, is looking into decoupled Drupal. Digital agencies are experimenting with it on more projects, and there is even a new Decoupled Dev Days conference dedicated to the topic. Roughly eight months ago, we asked ourselves in Acquia’s Office of the CTO whether we could create a “headless” version of Drupal, optimized for integration with a variety of applications, channels and touchpoints. Such a version could help us build bridges with other developer communities working with different frameworks and programming languages, and the JavaScript community in particular. I’ve been too busy with the transition at Acquia to blog about it in real time, but a few months ago, we released Reservoir. It’s a Drupal-based content repository with…

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…

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…

Building an Open Source Photo Gallery with Face and Object Recognition (Part 1)

In this two-part series of blog posts, I’m going to show you how we built a Drupal 8 photo gallery site, integrated with Amazon S3, Rekognition, and Lambda to automatically detect faces (allowing us to automatically identify names!) and objects found in our photos. Acquia Build Week Every year, Acquia puts on Build Week, a week-long event where Acquia’s engineering teams (along with other departments, like OCTO, Professional Services, and more!) come together to learn, collaborate, and inspire a little crazy. One of the most intense, fun, and productive parts of Build Week is the two-day Hackathon. Every year there are some new and interesting initiatives, spanning a very wide range of interests. Some projects, like the exploration and strengthening of Drupal 8’s then-nascent Configuration Management tools, are geared towards building up Drupal 8. Other projects are more imaginative and exploratory, like augmented reality shopping experiences, which demonstrated how Acquia…

Decoupling Drupal with Waterwheel for Ember and React

As I’ve written previously, the Waterwheel ecosystem and Reservoir distribution help pave the way for non-Drupal developers to use decoupled Drupal as a headless back end without having to learn a lick of Drupal or PHP. Thanks to the Contenta team, there is now a growing slate of applications backed by decoupled Drupal and web services modules like JSON API and Simple OAuth. Now, the Waterwheel team is excited to release several new projects that benefit developers developing JavaScript applications built in Ember and React. With the release of reference applications in Ember and React and an Ember add-on, the Waterwheel ecosystem is moving beyond SDKs like Waterwheel.js and toward a larger range of plugins, boilerplates, and examples to help you develop your Drupal-backed JavaScript applications more swiftly. Best of all, these projects can be used interchangeably to build applications backed by API-first Drupal 8 with JSON API, Acquia’s just-released…

Using the Drupal Theme Developer Module

There is one module that makes designing for Drupal 7 much, much easier: Theme Developer. You can think of Theme Developer as a Drupal-specific version of Firebug or Chrome Developer Tools. Using Theme developer you can click on any element of your Drupal site and get a breakdown of how it was built. Theme Developer has some downsides: it’s not been updated in a while, and (like anything related to the Devel module) shouldn’t be used on live sites. But, it can still be a useful tool for Drupal 7 themers. [[ This is a content summary only.

Installing Commerce 2.x without Composer, with Ludwig

The average Drupal Commerce site depends on many external PHP libraries. Address needs commerceguys/addressing and Commerce needs commerceguys/intl. GeoIP needs geoip2/geoip2 and Search API Solr needs solarium/solarium. Each payment gateway needs a matching SDK. These libraries must be downloaded separately, because license constraints prevent us from committing their code to drupal.org itself. For the past 5 years, the primary and only way to download and use PHP libraries has been Composer, a command line tool. Composer works per-project, meaning each Drupal install has one folder for all PHP libraries it requires, regardless of which module needs which. This allows Composer to detect and prevent conflicts such as incompatible library versions. Composer also recursively resolves dependencies, automatically installing and updating packages required by other packages. This is a major benefit to Drupal site administrators compared to previous tools like Drush Make. However, Drupal’s reliance on the Composer-generated autoloader makes it impossible…
