Appnovation Technologies: Simple Website Approach Using a Headless CMS: Part 1

drupal.org aggregator - Wed, 02/06/2019 - 03:00
Simple Website Approach Using a Headless CMS: Part 1 I strongly believe that the path for innovation requires a mix of experimentation, sweat, and failure. Without experimenting with new solutions, new technologies, new tools, we are limiting our ability to improve, arresting our potential to be better, to be faster, and sadly ensuring that we stay rooted in systems, processes and...

erdfisch: Drupalcon mentored core sprint - part 2 - your experience as a sprinter

Drupalcon mentored core sprint - part 2 - your experience as a sprinter 12.05.2018 Michael Lenahan Body:  Drupalcon mentored core sprint - part 2 - your experience as a sprinter

Hello! You've arrived at part 2 of a series of 3 blog posts about the Mentored Core Sprint, which traditionally takes place every Friday at Drupalcon.

If you haven't already, please go back and read part 1.

You may think sprinting is not for you ...

So, you may be the kind of person who usually stays away from the Sprint Room at Drupal events. We understand. You would like to find something to work on, but when you step in the room, you get the feeling you're interrupting something really important that you don't understand.

It's okay. We've all been there.

That's why the Drupal Community invented the Mentored Core Sprint. If you stay for this sprint day, you will be among friends. You can ask any question you like. The venue is packed with people who want to make it a useful experience for you.

Come as you are

All you need in order to take part in the first-time mentored sprint are two things:

  • Your self, a human who is interested in Drupal
  • Your laptop

To get productive, your laptop needs a local installation of Drupal. Don't have one yet? Well, it's your lucky day because you can your Windows or Mac laptop set up at the first-time setup workshop!

Need a local Drupal installation? Come to the first-time setup workshop

After about half an hour, your laptop is now ready, and you can go to the sprint room to work on Drupal Core issues ...

You do not need to be a coder ...

You do not need to be a coder to work on Drupal Core. Let's say, you're a project manager. You have skills in clarifying issues, deciding what needs to be done next, managing developers, and herding cats. You're great at taking large problems and breaking them down into smaller problems that designers or developers can solve. This is what you do all day when you're at work.

Well, that's also what happens here at the Major Issue Triage table!

But - you could just as easily join any other table, because your skills will be needed there, as well!

Never Drupal alone

At this sprint, no-one works on their own. You work collaboratively in a small group (maybe 3-4 people). So, if you don't have coding or design skills, you will have someone alongside you who does, just like at work.

Collaborating together, you will learn how the Drupal issue queue works. You will, most likely, not fix any large issues during the sprint.

Learn the process of contributing

Instead, you will learn the process of contributing to Drupal. You will learn how to use the issue queue so you can stay in touch with the friends you made today, so that you fix the issue over the coming weeks after Drupalcon.

It's never too late

Even if you've been in the Drupal community for over a decade, just come along. Jump in. You'll enjoy it.

A very welcoming place to start contributing is to work on Drupal documentation. This is how I made my first contribution, at Drupalcon London in 2011. In Vienna, this table was mentored by Amber Matz from Drupalize.Me.

This is one of the most experienced mentors, Valery Lourie (valthebald). We'll meet him again in part 3, when we come to the Drupalcon Vienna live commit.

Here's Dries. He comes along and walks around, no one takes any notice because they are too engaged and too busy. And so he gets to talk to people without being interrupted.

This is what Drupal is about. It's not about the code. It's about the people.

Next time. Just come. As a sprinter or a mentor. EVERYONE is welcome, we mean that.

This is a three-part blog post series:
Part one is here
You've just finished reading part two
Part three is coming soon

How to update Drupal 8 core?

Let's see how to update your Drupal site between 8.x.x minor and patch versions. For example, from 8.1.2 to 8.1.3, or from 8.3.5 to 8.4.0. I hope this will help you.

  • If you are upgrading to Drupal version x.y.z

           x -> is known as the major version number

I have my Raspberry Pi setup, now what?

Raspberry Pi - 12 min 50 sec ago

I recently purchased a Raspberry Pi and set it up with Raspbian, installed Kodi and Retropie, and created a NAS with my 2 TB HDD. Now what should I do with it. I want learn more but I'm looking for some ideas on where to go from here. I'd like to learn a bit of programming and more network stuff, maybe a little hacking. I also recently purchased an Arduino Uno and Mega that I haven't done much with and was thinking about incorporating those into my Raspberry Pi if possible. Any igood deas? Thanks! :)

Why when I fork something on Github, am I not getting the latest version?

Learn Programming - 30 min 23 sec ago

I am attempting to fork this repo: https://github.com/adafruit/BOSSA/tree/arduino

And on it you can see the following directory:

src add samr21 5 months ago

But when I fork it, I don't get that version, I get a much older version:

src Added email contact and website to about dialog and help text 2 years ago

I checked that I am looking at the same branch as that tripped me up earlier when directories seemingly disappeared entirely, but that's not the issue.

I also see this notification on the fork: This branch is 3 commits behind mattairtech:arduino.

And that may be the source of my issue, but I can't seem to update the fork so it's not behind. I tried the "pull request" button, but the wording of what I get back sounds weird:

mattairtech:arduino is up to date with all commits from scswift:arduino. Try switching the base for your comparison.

That sounds like what I'd call a push, not a pull, but admittedly I'm unfamiliar with all this stuff. Shouldn't it say that scswift:arduino is up to date with all commits from mattairtech:arduino? (Which it appears not to be, but that's besides the point.)

Help with Circle class

Java help/tutorials/questions - 33 min 17 sec ago

This is my circle class

public class Circle { private double radius; final double PI = 3.14159; public Circle() { radius = 0.0; } public Circle(double radius) { this.radius = radius; } public void setRadius(double radius) { this.radius = radius; } public double getRadius() { return radius; } public double getArea() { double area; area = PI * radius * radius; return area; } public double getDiamater() { double diameter; diameter = radius * 2; return diameter; } public double getCircumference() { double circumference; circumference = 2 * PI * radius; return circumference; }

and this is my circle program

} import java.util.Scanner; public class CircleMain { public static void main(String[] args) { Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in); double r; Circle circle; System.out.print( "Enter the radius: " ); r = input.nextDouble(); circle = new Circle( r ); System.out.print( "\n" + "Area: " + circle.getArea() + "\n" + "Diameter: " + circle.getDiameter() + "\n" + "Circumference: " + circle.getCircumference() + "\n\n" ); } }

When I compile CircleMain I get the following error message:

What hypervisors are you Linux shops running these days?

Sysadmin - 41 min 10 sec ago

I work in a predominately windows shop with very few Linux machines and by no means would I consider myself a Linux guy, however I’ve been dabbing more and more into the Linux world and finding out I am liking it the more I get involved.

My goal is to replace as many windows services with linux in my lab so this leads me to the question of what are you Linux shops running for hypervisors?

Run sudo without entering password

Raspberry Pi - 45 min 6 sec ago

Hi there, Recently got a pi 0 and installed raspbian stretch on it. For obvious reasons I wanted to remove the 'pi' user added my own username as a sudo user. However every time I run a sudo I get prompted for a password. A bit of googling gave me this...

Edit /etc/sudoers and add <username> ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

Even then I still get asked for a password for sudo commands but it seem to remember the password for 10 mins or so.

I would like to setup my username so that I wouldn't have to enter password for sudo at all.

With lots of thinking with trial and error, I pretty much have Ver 4 up and running. Except the problem now is that I want the program to keep repeating the question "Count up or down?" if the user doesn't type "up" or "down" or any variation of it.


Output: Count up or down?

Can you recommend a laptop or tablet that's good for Photoshop and gaming?

  • Total budget and country of purchase: $1000 tops, preferably under $800, USA

  • Do you prefer a 2 in 1 form factor, good battery life or best specifications for the money? Pick or include any that apply. My biggest concerns are the quality of the graphics card, amount of RAM, speed, and quality of the processor, and preferably a solid state drive. Also, the quality of the screen and the battery life. I'd like at least four hours on a charge if possible.

  • How important is weight and thinness to you? Fairly important since it will be on my lap all day. If it's hot and heavy it will be hard to use or take on trips.

  • Which OS do you require? Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Linux. Windows

  • Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A. minimum 15, preferably 17 or better

  • Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run. All of the above. Heavy on the photoshop and big open-world games like Witcher 3 and MMORG's

  • If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want? Modern games like GTA 5, Sims 4, Skyrim, The Secret World etc and at the highest settings.

  • Any specific requirements such as a good keyboard, reliable build quality, touch-screen, finger-print reader, optical drive or good input devices (keyboard/touchpad)? I need to be able to draw on the screen directly as if it's a piece of paper so I can work on my art more comfortably without needing a separate tablet. But it also has to come with a keyboard or have the option of buying one for when I'm playing games.

  • Leave any finishing thoughts here that you may feel are necessary and beneficial to the discussion. Sorry if the specs are too high end for the price. Give me your best suggestions even if they exceed 1k. Thank you for your assistance.

[Surface Pro 3]Microsoft Edge not detecting any printer.

Sysadmin - 53 min 52 sec ago

Hey guys,

Long time lurker in-between tickets.
I've thought I'd ask for some help here as I'm facing quite a puzzle since month.
I'm currently working with a Surface 3 park using intune as MDM.

Most of those machines seem to have a common problem,
Edge, is incapable of reaching any printer. Be it network, or local(XPS printer).
I've read and experimented for a month now trying to find a solution. To the point of researching during my weekends. But can't seem to do so.

I tried many things.
Remapping the printers
Reinstalling the drivers

Those steps give me very inconsistent results. Sometimes working, sometimes not.

Even reinstalling the OS doesn't seem to resolve the issue every time. It's more of a 50/50 success rate.

I was wondering if any of you ever faced something similar.

c++: bit confused about dynamic_cast

Learn Programming - 56 min 16 sec ago
if (CheckingsAccount* cptr = dynamic_cast<CheckingsAccount*>(account[i])) { //if account[i] is in fact a checkings account: cptr->setTransactionFee(5); cptr->credit(0, secondAdjustment); }

I wrote this bit of code and I'm confused about the if (CheckingsAccount* cptr = dynamic_cast<CheckingsAccount*>(account[i])) statement.

So it automatically sets cptr to `account[i], and that also causes the if-statement to check to see if cptr is in fact an CheckingsAccount class?

If that's the case then does dynamic_cast return true if it's able to successfully convert a base class to a derived class?

If that's what happens and the first if-statement fails, then do both cptr and sptr point to the newly converted account object? And is this generally bad programming practice?

Since there is less documentation for Drupal8 I am writing blogs. I need some feedback.

Hey guys, I think there is always less to know proper documentation in Drupal so I've decided to write blogs on it by associating with a company that uses Drupal extensively I did two blogs already, I need some feedback from you guys, please let me know your thoughts thanks :) Here are the blogs:

  1. Implementing Open Graph Features Using Meta tag Open Graph Module

  2. Protecting Web Forms From Bots Using Captcha and Honeypot
