On August 13th, I had the pleasure of enjoying another Drupal Camp Asheville. This has become one of my favorite Drupal camps because of the location and quality of camp organization.

Drupal Bits at Web-Dev: Hook Update Deploy Tools: Node import FAQs

Using the Drupal module Hook Update Deploy Tools to move node content  can be an important part to a deployment strategy.  How do I export and import nodes using Hook Update Deploy Tools? >> Read the project page or a quick how-to. What is the unique ID that connects an export to an import? What are the risks of this import export model? What if I am using an entity reference or a taxonomy that does not exist on production? Does the import show up as a revision? What happens if the import does not validate? What if the alias or path is already in use by another node? What if the alias or path is already in use by a View or used by a menu router? Is there a limit to the number of nodes that can be imported this way? What is the unique ID that connects an export…

Gábor Hojtsy: Want to get issues resolved in Drupal core? Find community with an initiative!

In my previous post I explained why there will be a Drupal 9 even though we have previously unseen possibilities to add new things within Drupal 8.x.y. Now I’d like to dispel another myth, that initiatives are only there to add those new things. Drupal 8 introduced initiatives to the core development process with the intention that even core development became too big to follow, understand or really get involved with in general. However because there are key areas that people want to work in, it makes sense to set up focused groups to organize work in those areas and support each other in those smaller groups. So initiatives like Configuration Management, Views in Core, Web Services, Multilingual, etc. were set up and mostly worked well, not in small part because it is easier to devote yourself to improving web services capabilities or multilingual support as opposed to “make Drupal…

Trusting SSL Locally on a Mac

I run most of my production sites with forced SSL, including CSS-Tricks. But locally, I’ve avoided getting SSL working properly. I’ve always avoided it, perhaps because it’s not immediately obvious how to do it. It’s also not that big of a deal since it’s just local traffic. But hey, might as well make local work as close to production is possible eh? I’ve had situations come up where it was actually quite important and affected development. Like a native PHP function that worked differently on HTTPS than HTTP. More commonly, I was working on HTTP locally and an asset was loaded over HTTPS and thus failed (needed manual approval of the insecure certificate). 1) Locally Signed SSL Certificate through MAMP I get frustrated with MAMP a lot, but it’s still working for me after all these years. Perhaps someday I’ll move to a Docker thing or something. But as yet-another…

What the heck is the event loop anyway?

In 2014, Philip Roberts gave a great talk at JSConf EU, walking through the event loop and breaking down what JavaScript is doing under the hood for those of us without CS degrees. I came across this talk the other day in my Twitter stream, and really enjoyed it. Even though it’s a couple years old, it has stood the test of time and remains a great resource.

Unimity Solutions Drupal Blog: Identification of an Open Source Video Annotations Tool for NVLI

This involved identifying and integrating an open plugin that supported video and audio annotations and a generic annotation store module that was plugin agnostic. Source: Drupal Aggregator

Drupal Bits at Web-Dev: Import nodes as as part of deployment using Hook Update Deploy Tools

With the 7.x-1.18 release of Hook Update Deploy Tools for Drupal 7 it is now possible to export a node on a development sandbox, commit the export file to the repository, then import it using either a hook_update_N() or using drush site-deploy-import node Pros: No need to re-create a node on prod after a client approves it. Early content that keeps getting wiped out by database snapshots (think style guides) can get re-created instantly with a single drush command. Content imported into an existing node shows up as a revision. Atomated deployment is testable and repeatable on all dev environments. No uuid required. Workflow Example: You have a styleguide you created on your sandbox and want to deploy it to the production site.  Create the node on your sandbox (node id = 1234). Export the node to an export file. drush site-deploy-export 1234 The command created an export file named  for the alias of…

ASD? Test Software.

This is sad: More than 50,000 Americans with autism become adults each year, but more than 80 percent of them are unemployed. 80% unemployment is too dang high… although, since ASD is a spectrum disorder there are many who are not literally able to work. I do like what MindSpark is apparently doing for those that can work: The company is hiring autistic adults to test enterprise software and find bugs, and these employees are now testing software for Fortune 500 brands, from Fox Networks Group to Liberty Mutual. … In turn, talented autistic adults can gain meaningful careers in the technology industry with competitive wages, opportunities for advancement, and — most importantly — true independence and self-sufficiency. Pretty neat. I hope more companies create programs like this to serve a community that needs the work and that could contribute very effectively to the companies that employ them. It won’t be easy and…

Drupal @ Penn State: The Care and Feeding of Your Website

A question on the PSU DUG Slack channel got me thinking. How is it that websites are still being constructed at Penn State without any thought being put in as to how its is going to be maintained? Or by whom?   To be clear, I am not talking about content creation or maintenance, but maintaining the code/server/DB/etc. that supports or runs the site? Or to develop new features and functionality, going beyond just updating code or applying security patches. Of course, this is not restricted to Drupal development – there are many other examples.
