Drupal 8 Theme Guidance on bootstrap based theme

I am looking for advice on how people choose to start their custom Drupal 8 themes that include Bootstrap 3. I will want a setup with Gulp, that builds bootstrap from sass so I can include only what I need. I cruised Github and found a few starter kits, and noticed none of them are "subthemes" of the drupal.org/project/bootstrap theme. Which is what I originally was going to do, but now unsure.

I don't really know the pros/cons to using the Bootstrap project theme as a parent-theme OR classy for example.

Starter kits I found (I am looking to do something very similar) * https://github.com/alexandar87/d8bs * https://github.com/xenomedia/xeno_demeter * https://github.com/mlaroy/drupal-8-webpack-starter * https://github.com/kurtisdunn/Drupal-8-Starter-Gulp-SASS

What are the pros/cons to subthemes? I got burned in D7 when a profile maintainer abonded their Distrobution, and I can see the pros to a Vanilla Drupal install now :) So I want to start my theme out correctly!

What scripts do you run before/during/after your print?

3D printing news - 5 hours 55 min ago

I run a script to lift the nozzle on the Z-axis and purge some filament then slowly move over to separate it from the nozzle before my print starts.

When my print ends my Z-axis lifts slightly and my Y-axis moves forward to make the print easier to access.

What scripts do you guys run to automate some of your printing?

CM Batch JPEG Date Changer 2.0.4 - Correct image creation and modification date and time.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - 6 hours 1 min ago


CM Batch JPEG Date Changer can cover you if you replace your camera batteries and forget to change the camera clock, or set the wrong date or time at the change of the year. There are applications out there which let you batch change all the file dates to a single date time which would not make much sense. Moreover, those only change the creation and modification date but the digitized date and time in the EXIF header remains unchanged. The EXIF date is important when uploading to the web, especially one of the many cloud-based photo storage services. This application lets you change the date and time different ways:

  • You can set all dates and times to be the same (if you want) or just change the date and leave the time as they are.
  • You can also use the Date Maths feature which lets you add or subtract days, months, years, hours, and/or minutes from the current photo dates.
  • You can sync all the dates to either the creation, modification, or EXIF date.
  • You can also change each photo date and time individually; the choice is really yours to make depending on the situation.

CM Batch JPEG Date Changer requires a two-step process which first lets you review the changes to the dates before applying them so as not to make yet another mistake which could ruin the day. Once you are happy with the changes, click the "Change Now" button and let the application do its magic. The images will not be modified in any way; it is only the file-creation and modification dates and times which will be changed: the date and time within the EXIF meta header.



Version 2.0.4:

Note: Currently available for $7.99

  • Internal updates

How come everything is easier on Ubuntu? Why isn't it used more in Production?

Seriously, anytime I need to setup a service or configuration all I do is a run a couple of commands on Ubuntu and I'm up and running, rarely coming across any issues.

With CentOS, more often than not it's a mess and requires troubleshooting.

What gives

[iOS 11 Change] Caches Directory no longer counts towards total app size

iOS Programming - 6 hours 23 min ago

When you view the size of each app in iPhone Storage (Settings -> General -> iPhone Storage) you can only see the App bundle size (.app folder) and the size of the Documents folder. Caches Folder (<Application_Home>/Library/Caches) size is no longer taken into account.

So, for e.g., if you have a game app that has 100MB size and a 1GB DLC that is downloaded at launch, you'll see that the game size is 100MB and the Documents & Data section is empty, since the DLC is redownloadable, so it must be placed in the Caches Directory. This is not how it used to be until iOS 11.

I assume this is because the OS can always clear the Cache folder for some applications that are not frequently used, if the user needs more disk space. But still, atm iOS 11 users cannot know now much an app actual size is.

Was this change documented somewhere ? I don't see any mention of this in the release notes. We used to use this feature to test how much data our apps store in the caches folder. Now i'll write app a simple function to display this size inside the app, but still, seems like an important undocumented change.

Cook says 'people weren't paying attention' but vows to let users turn off iPhone throttling

MacCentral - 6 hours 27 min ago

In an interview with ABC News to tout Apple’s new jobs strategy, second U.S. campus, and repatriation of some $250 billion in overseas cash, Tim Cook also spoke for the first time about the iPhone battery issue, offering an apology, a little blame, and an upcoming fix.

Apple has already come clean on its practice of slowing down older iPhones to prevent against unnecessary shutdowns, but Cook put a slightly different spin on things, saying “a lot of people weren’t paying attention” when Apple originally released the iOS 10.2.1 update that started throttling chip speeds. At the time, this is what Apple had to say in a statement provided to TechCrunch:
