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

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

drupal.org aggregator - Sat, 05/12/2018 - 05:00
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

Community: Register Now for the Teamwork and Leadership Workshop at DrupalCon Nashville!

drupal.org aggregator - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 20:22

The Drupal Community Working Group, in partnership with the Drupal Association, is very excited to offer a special workshop at DrupalCon Nashville designed to explore leadership, followership, and teamwork as it applies to various roles in our community.

One of the most remarkable things about open source projects like Drupal is that they enable people from all over to come together and collaborate with others toward shared goals. In order to be successful, open source projects need to continually work toward building positive, supportive communities that enable everyone to be at their best. If you are someone who has, or is ready for a position of responsibility within Drupal (e.g., camp and group organizers, initiative leads, sprint mentors, module maintainers, etc.), we encourage you to attend.

This free event will be facilitated by incoming Drupal Association board chair Adam Goodman, who is also the head of Northwestern University’s Center for Leadership, and works as an executive coach and advisor to senior executives and boards of directors at dozens of companies and organizations around the world. A number of other community members, including Donna Benjamin, Shyamala Rajaram, Gábor Hjotsky, Mike Anello, George DeMet, Tiffany Farriss, and Jordana Fung will also be helping to co-facilitate.

The Teamwork and Leadership Workshop will feature a large group exercise about common assumptions and myths regarding teamwork and leadership, discussion of some best practices for effective leadership and teamwork today, and small group sessions where people can link those concepts with their own experiences within the Drupal community.

The workshop will be held from 2-5pm on Tuesday, April 10, and you can register now at: https://goo.gl/forms/7SWzVS4qhHqbiRrW2. Space is limited, so don’t delay.

We hope to see you there!

Do I need to configure trusted_host_patterns if Drupal is behind a reverse proxy?

Drupal - Open Source Content Platform - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 19:16

Drupal 8 complains if you haven't configured the trusted_host_patterns in settings.php, as failing to do so can open the site up to HTTP Host header attacks. However, I cannot for the life of me figure out a way to set the trusted hosts so that I can actually use the site. I get this error:

The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.

This is about all I've been able to find on Google searches related to the issue.

While the OP doesn't mention reverse proxies, one of the commenters is calling the warning Drupal displays for the trusted host configs "just a nuisance" for any installations behind a reverse proxy, and suggesting that we should be able to opt-out.

Is it safe to leave trusted host patterns disabled while behind a reverse proxy? Or is there some config step I'm just missing that will make them work?

A module to ease developer's life when creating custom entities.

A lot has been done in Drupal 8, but there is always something to improve.

This module offers:

  • Base classes for content entities that already define common fields like ID, UUID, label, created and changed dates, and so on.
  • A Views based entity list builder.
  • An entity form base class that takes care of redirecting the user and showing a message.

Matt Glaman: Creating better Drupal module release notes

drupal.org aggregator - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 11:00
Creating better Drupal module release notes mglaman Fri, 03/16/2018 - 10:00 Every software release needs to have release notes. End users need to be able to understand what it is that they are upgrading to and any associated risks, or risks mitigated by upgrading and receiving bug fixes. Across the board proprietary and open source software projects either hit or miss on delivering decent release notes. During MidCamp I decided to help fix that problem for Drupal.org projects.

Every time I leave the Windy City, I feel something pulling me back. This time, it wasn't the gusts that whip around the skyscrapers towering over Lake Shore Drive. Instead, it was the renewed excitement I could feel in the air on the heels of Wednesday's release of Drupal 8.5, and the mood at MidCamp, held at the Lincoln Park campus of DePaul University, was celebratory and animated.

When you are in the business of selling services or expertise, you will face competition. Nowadays a global competition where (y)our competitors take on various shapes and sizes. So when an organisation goes on the market looking for certain services, this organisation probably has a predefined set of requirements for the provider. These can change over time, but some basics are set at the beginning.    What is the client actually buying? There are at least three factors that influence the buying process at the organisation which needs a new website. The first one is the organisation… READ MORE

Droptica: Droptica: Yoast Real Time SEO plugin

drupal.org aggregator - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 03:30
Yoast SEO is a module that has everything you need to make your content visible to search engines. The plug-in that took the WordPress community by storm is slowly getting more and more traction in the Drupal community as well. What exactly is SEO? SEO is an acronym of Search Engine Optimisation, which basically means optimising websites for a search engine, which in reality translates into getting your website as high as possible in search results, and thus getting more and more people to visit the website.
