drupal.org aggregator - Mon, 06/25/2018 - 05:52

Drupal meetups are all about gathering up the Drupal-ers around the local community and helping the community grow at large. AddWeb Solution Pvt. Ltd. recently took up this initiative and organised a Drupal Meetup in Ahmedabad - India’s first heritage city declared by UNESCO.


A little about AddWeb and its association with Drupal

AddWeb is an outsourcing agency, based out of Ahmedabad with its clientele spread across the globe. Being an active member and contributor of Drupal community, AddWeb has been doing its bit for Drupal community from time to time. The recent one, being this Drupal Meetup held on 9th June 2018 at AddWeb premises.

About of the Meetup

The meetup was organised with the primary goal of elevating the local Drupal community and the secondary goal of promoting new ideas to strengthen Drupal in our area. The meetup was designed and divided under 3 different sessions, each session meant to bring us closer to our goals. Below is the brief hint on what each of these sessions was about:


1) Decoupled Drupal

An open discussion about the most talked about thing coming from the house of Drupal. In the meetup, several aspects of Decoupled Drupal were discussed.

, ,

2) Component-Driven Front-end Development

Drupal is bringing in some major changes and innovation to its existing format. Component driven front-end development is one such innovation that needs your attention.

, ,

3) Decoupled React Editorial Experiences

A remotely setup session that was supposed to be taken by Ruben Teijeiro from 1XInternet, did not happen due to last minute urgency of the speaker.


Though the third session couldn’t be conducted, AddWeb has promised to incorporate it in the next meetup that we organise. All in all 50+ Drupal-ers joined us in the meetup and shared their insights on both the conducted sessions. Overwhelmed by their active participation and enthusiasm for the event, we’re motivated to plan more such Drupal Meetups in future. Let’s unite and keep on making efforts to build the Drupal scenario is our respective geographical setups. Because Drupal-ing is fun!

Fairly busy Drupal website how to cache?

Drupal - Open Source Content Platform - Mon, 06/25/2018 - 01:56

So I have a somewhat busy drupal 7 website. Running on mysql database.

For now we have enabled drupal 7 caching via the performance settings.

I read here that the above caching is database caching and not good for heavy traffic.

What then are the best caching options available for me? Thanks!

Jacob Rockowitz: Webform Accessibility @ Design4Drupal

drupal.org aggregator - Sun, 06/24/2018 - 21:27

Putting together my presentation about Webform Accessibility for Design4Drupal proved to be more challenging than I anticipated. I proposed this session to force myself to begin to address accessibility in the Webform module for Drupal 8. I mistakenly thought that I could do some research and become an accessibility expert. I assumed learning about accessibility was the same as learning a new programming language - you read a book, review the docs, write some code, throw out some code, refactor other code, learn about design patterns and - voila! - you now know a new programming language. I was wrong - getting up to speed on accessibility is very challenging.

Learning about accessibility can be overwhelming

Between screen readers barking text at you and massive well-thought-out guidelines, I discovered that understanding accessibility could be overwhelming. I thought I could enable VoiceOver, the screen reader built into OSX, and start using it. Instead, I was only able to digest VoiceOver in small five minute bites, trying to reckon one of the most challenging pieces of software I have ever used. I found myself empathizing with anyone with a disability attempting to navigate a website. Frankly, many people with disabilities are likely forced to give up trying to browse websites that don't care about accessibility.

Why do I care about accessibility?

My difficulty loomed large enough that I considered coping out and seeing if I could just do a general Webform presentation at Design4Drupal. There are three other accessibility related sessions scheduled, and I am willing to assume that these presentations are going to be more thorough...Read More

Drupal 8 Database Size increasing due to Cache Tables

Drupal - Open Source Content Platform - Sun, 06/24/2018 - 18:14


I at my workplace am working on a Drupal 8 application, that has started receiving increased traffic now. With this, we are also seeing an increased consumption of storage space in the MySQL database mainly in the cache tables.

After upgrading to Drupal 8.4.0 previously, I thought Cache bins were fixed as mentioned here : https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/2526150. But even after tweaking and playing with the settings, there was no difference in the cache consumption.

Has anyone been able to resolve this issue? Thanks!
